Odds-on England Even-money for Six Nations Grand Slam after smashing France

England are Even-money to complete a Six Nations Grand Slam following a thumping 44-8 win over France on Sunday.


Eddie Jones’ side made a sensational start to the competition when they upset pre-tournament favourites Ireland a week ago, and there proved to be no hangover from that loss as they swept aside a sorry French outfit that blew a 16-point lead to lose to Wales in their opener.

Jonny May was the star of the show, racing onto an Elliot Daly kick to score the game’s first try in the opening minute, and 28-year-old wing went on to complete his hat-trick as the home side delighted Twickenham with a convincing performance.

“Trying to raise the bar after last week was the challenge, but we came out and definitely played some good rugby,” May told ITV afterwards.

“The brand of rugby we want to play, we want to put teams under pressure. I’m just doing my job, we are all working hard and putting some good performances together. We have learnt a lot and worked incredibly hard, and it’s paid off in the end.

To score a hat trick at Twickenham is awesome and very special, I’m very lucky.”

England’s victory sets up a mouth-watering clash with Wales on February 23, after Warren Gatland’s men made it two wins from two games by beating Italy 24 hours earlier, and the bookmakers believe the winner of that clash will now go on to win this year’s Six Nations.

bet365 believes the trophy is England’s to lose and make them the new 2/9 favourites in the outright betting, with Wales considered 5/1 second favourites as they prepare to play host to that huge match later this month.

Pre-tournament favourites Ireland are now all the way out to 10/1 despite bouncing back from that loss to England with a win over 50/1 Scotland, while France have plummeted to 500/1 meaning only 5000/1 write-offs Italy are behind them in the betting.

And of course, England's victory means only them and Wales can no complete the Grand Slam this year.

At Even-money the bookmakers believe there is a very good chance that Eddie Jones' men will complete a clean sweep of the opposition this year, while the 7/1 on a Welsh Grand Slam suggests Gatland's side still have much to prove as far as the bookies are concerned.
