England now massive odds-on to win Six Nations

| 27.02.2011

ENGLAND ARE now 1/16 for the Six Nations following their win over France at Twickenham.

England are also just 8/11 for the Grand Slam as the result today sees France move out to 7/1 for the tournament, with Ireland 33/1 chances in advance of their match with Scotland (3/1 for the wooden spoon).

The firm are also breathing a huge sigh of relief after Chris Ashton’s try (duly celebrated with the ‘swallow-dive’) was disallowed, saving the bookies on two fronts.

Not only had he been well backed to score in the game but a try with the textbook celebration would have been a five-figure loser after the celebration special had been particularly well backed in the run up to the game.

Alex Donohue of Ladbrokes said: “The Six Nations now looks like England’s to lose as they go longer odds-on for the championship. We’re just thankful that Ashton’s try was disallowed as the swallow-dive was backed off the boards.”
