Will French Flair Dash England Grand Slam Hopes?
Bookies William Hill make England their 1/3 favourites to beat France on Saturday, in what many believe is the crunch match for England and their Grand Slam hopes. France are 9/4 to win and in the Handicap they are given a seven point head start at 10/11.
Italy have already beaten France at home and they are 11/4 to add Wales to their scalps, with Wales the favourites at 1/4. The Handicap gives Italy a nine point head start.
Scotland host Ireland at Murrayfield and are 13/10 to win back to back victories, but Ireland will be desperate to bounce back from defeat to England and are 8/13 for victory!
"France have had a very disappointing championship but they tend to raise their game against England and Stuart Lancaster's men will be very wary on Saturday evening," said William Hill spokesman Rupert Adams.
