Rugby World Cup: England favourite to beat France
England are now 17/2 from 9/1 to win the World Cup after their narrow win over Scotland. Hills make England 4/9 favourites to beat France who are offered at 7/4. Chris Ashton is the now just 2/1 from an original 33/1 to be the tournament top try scorer and England are 2/1 to make the final. Scotland were unlucky in defeat and William Hill have trimmed them from 20/1 to 16/1 to win the Six Nations with England 2/1 behind France at 7/4.
"England backers will not have enjoyed watching that performance but the good news is France were even worse and if you could chose to play any of the likely Quarter finalists you would probably go for les Bleus!" said Hill's spokesman Rupert Adams.
