2008 RBS Six Nations to be Tightest in Years

sports Add comments

With the six nation 2008 about to lick off I started thinking about the surprise success of the English national rugby union team reaching last years world cup finals in France last year, and wondered what are chances of winning actually are.

Many are tipping the first game to actually decide this year’s tournament with Wales visiting Twickenham tomorrow. The fact remains though that this years is the most open Six Nations for years. No more can the once English juggernaut or the in-transition French claim to be overwhelming favourites with the recent emergence of both Wales and Ireland.

To show how tight the tournament is Coral is offering best prices on France and England at 7-4 France and 9-4 England. France have won the past two titles but both have been on points difference from Ireland, who are priced at 11-2

Either way the tournament is always great to watch, especially for someone like myself who doesn’t follow rugby week in week out.

There is a couple online rugby games on the official six nations site that are also well worth a visit to kill the time between matches.
