Bookies burnt by ‘Burns Country' punter

A William Hill customer from Ayrshire has landed the biggest ever Rugby Union handicap bet after he staked £50,000 on France beating the all-conquering All Blacks - with the benefit of a 17 point start.

The bet was struck at Even money which means he will receive a cheque for £100,000 when he goes into the betting shop to collect his winnings.

"This guy was one of the very few people in the country who had any faith in the French and his faith has certainly been rewarded," said Hill's spokesman Rupert Adams.
