6 Nations 2015 – Who is going to win?
England have a large injury list which will surely present not few complications in trying to secure the victory in this year’s RBS 6Nations but they have finished second for the past three seasons and they play three games at Twickenham so a top tip could see them as favourites. Ireland and Wales remain a big threat but if England sneak an early win in Cardiff they will gain significant momentum. A really wild rugby prediction would be Scotland winning the 6Nations for the first time. They have three home games and difficult away games at Twickenham and in Paris, but they might manage to beat Wales, Italy and Ireland at home. There will be no grand slam, but a chance of a triple crown and a grand party would be a money making tip for sure. The best rugby prediction based on form would suggest Ireland, if based on recent pedigree then Wales, and a tip based on pure strength, England. The world’s best tipster would remind you not to forget that France have the capacity to win against anyone even when they look a beaten side, Scotland should start strongly and Italy are not what they were a few years ago. The bookies have their ideas but a good rugby prediction with a interesting return on a bet would tip you Ireland to win, followed by Wales, with France the great unknown.
As far as the key match is concerned, few could argue with tonight’s clash in Cardiff which will set the ball rolling is a must win match for both teams, but it could well be England v France which has the chance of becoming the decider on the final weekend of the tournament. Either way it is England’s last genuinely competitive Test before they host the World Cup so all these injuries could turn out to be a blessing in disguise with Lancaster forced to try options he might never had had the courage to. As far as the player of the tournament is concerned, well a top rugby tipster would suggest one of the goal kickers which have usually been the most vital players in the past, even if the likes of Italy’s Sergio Parisse, Wales duo George North and Jamie Roberts, Ireland’s Johnny Sexton, Scotland’s Stuart Hogg and England’s Billy Vunipola have all got the pedigree to be the X factor of this tournament.
A great rugby prediction would suggest Italy against France in Rome, France in Dublin and Wales losing to Scotland as the most probable upsets of the tournament but would you bet on any? And whilst we are at it, if I tipped you a Scotland win in Paris would you take it? Or even better, how about England losing all three home matches against Italy, Scotland and France, what odds would that get you, or more close to the point, would any world-class tipster suggest this as possibility?
As far as the venue you should not miss a chance to visit, well it doesn’t take the best Tipster in the World to suggest a trip to the Stadio Olimpico in Rome, even if you are not an Italian fan, think warmer weather, wonderful food and lots of great wine which will make your trip worthwhile even if your team ends up losing!
