Super Six Nations: Tom Wood Set To Captain
Early indications from William Hill suggest that the 2012 Six Nations is set to be the closest and biggest turnover event in its history. Hills odds indicate that interim coach Stuart Lancaster will go with Tom Wood, who is the 11/4 favourite to be made Captain with uncapped Owen Farrell 2/5 favourite to step into Jonny Wilkinson's boots and start at number ten.
"All eyes will be on England after their disastrous World Cup, but the odds suggest that it will be the closest Six Nations in recent history, which should be great for turnover," said Hill's spokesman Rupert Adams.
