The Six Nations has officially kicked off for 2013, and so far we’ve seen three games between the greatest rugby teams on earth. At the moment, the only winners are England, Ireland and Italy, but we’re bound to see some decent action from France, Wales and Scotland in the coming matches.
The one match we’re focused on at the moment though, is the upcoming England vs. Ireland that will take place on Sunday the 10th of February at the Aviva Stadium in Dublin. Both teams won their last respective matches and will be taking each over on in the hopes to gain an early lead in the Six Nations competition.
Battle In The UK
Both teams have something to gain from this match, but England wants to get some revenge after their defeat to Ireland two years ago. The England team were confident that they would walk away with the Grand Slam title, only to lose the match to Ireland. Now they’re back and they have something to prove.
Ireland, on the other hand, aren’t about to give this match up without a fight. They have the momentum to win after a win in Cardiff against the Welsh team, but have said they won’t get complacent. They too have something to prove after they lost to England last year.
This will be, without a doubt, one of the closest matches during the Six Nations, so make sure you place your bets wisely. Here are some of ours if you need any inspiration.
- We want our home team to win, so £20 has gone on England to finish as victors. With odds of 10/11, we’ll get a tidy sum of £38.
- As much as we want England to win, we know it’s going to be close. With odds of 7/2, we’ve put £10 on England only winning by 1-5 points, which will hopefully win us £45.
- We’re hoping Chris Ashton will score the first try for England, we’re putting a fiver on the odds of 4/1, so we’re looking at winning £25 here.
