Chris Ashton is the 2/1 favourite with Ladbrokes to be England’s top try scorer in the 2011 6 Nations.

England’s most likely finishing position according to the bookmakers is first (2/1 favourite). It’s 5/1 England come second but the odds suggest England have a better chance of coming third (3/1).

Alex Donohue of Ladbrokes said: “We expect Ashton to be the top scorer and his tries will be crucial for England if they are to justify expectations and win the 6 nations.”
