Super Saturday saw 2 cracking 6 Nations matches. In London, things went very much as expected with England running out comfortable winners without ever getting near the handicap mark offered as we expected. It was a much better display from both sides this week, and England can look on some of the players that came off the bench as potential starters in the next game, Dan Robson in particular.
Up in Edinburgh, things were going exactly as we expected until two quick fore tries and another red card changing the complexion of the match. and unfortunately they didn’t go our way. Again Rees-Zammit impressed with his finishing abilities and Hoggy is nailing on that Lion’s 15 shirt.
Ireland vs France 14/2/21 15:00 KO
Ireland have been devastated by injuries this week. So many leaders out of the Match, Sexton, Murray, Ryan, and of course O’Mahony. But looking down their team sheet still reads to be very exciting. If anything these enforced changes may free them up to play a more expansive game, giving them a better chance of competing with this French side. France, brilliant as expected last week look good and are expected to come away from Dublin with a win. But i think it will be close and for me could still go either way, If Ireland were at full strength and had kept 15 men on the park last week they would have won, I have no doubt and would be favourites for this match. One thing we will see today is a fast flowing free game, Ireland bringing in Burns and Gibson-Park only brings more expanse and pace to the game. We are going to avoid playing with the result today and look at the anytime try scorer market. There are some stand out prices among both sets of backs, and with the handling ability of both teams they will be on the end of scores. so lets play there hopefully bagging two or three winners
Arthur Vincent anytime try scorer, 8/1 best price across several bookies – Lost
Brice Dulin anytime try scorer, 7/1 best price with skybet, others mainly 6/1 – Lost
Gary Ringrose anytime try scorer, 13/2 best price with skybet, others vary 6s and 5s – Lost
Hugo Keenan anytime try scorer, 8/1 best price with skybet, others shorter around 6s – Lost
Enjoy and good luck today, here’s to a winning Sunday
