CHRIS ASHTON can strike another blow for Ladbrokes punters by scoring at the weekend and celebrating with his trademark ‘swallow-dive’.

It’s 9/2 he score England’s first try of the match and 2/1 that he scores at anytime whilst pulling off the dive. In a match bet with the rest of the England team he is also 1/1 to add to his tally of six and outscore the rest of the squad, who are currently on four tries collectively (8/11).

England are the 4/9 favourites for the match and trade at 10/11 minus five points on the handicap. It’s 7/4 the French win or 10/11 with the handicap advantage and the draw is priced at 18/1.

In a game billed as a Championship decider, it’s currently 8/11 that England win the Six Nations with France 6/5 chances and the Grand Slam betting is even closer with ‘no Grand Slam winner’ the favourite at 11/8 from England (15/8) and France (2/1).

Alex Donohue of Ladbrokes said: “Ashton has taken us to the cleaners this tournament and we’re the only people not cheering every swallow-dive. Punters can’t get enough of him and his tries so we’re sure the special will prove to be popular.

“In what appears to the the Championship decider the betting indicates that it will be a tight game but we expect England will make use of home advantage.”
