Price Boost: Huge prices on England and Ireland try scorers

| 27.02.2015

It’s being billed as the game that decides the Six Nations, with England travelling to the Aviva Stadium to face Ireland in a pivotal clash at the top of the table.

The match-betting odds make the hosts 4/5 favourites for victory, but don’t render England completely without a chance of triumph at a price of 6/5.

However, there are some really plump pieces of value to be had in the first tryscorer market, as Ladbrokes boost the odds of a member from each team to bag the first score of the game.

Ireland winger Tommy Bowe and England’s tryscoring sensation Jonathan Joseph have both seen their odds for the first try stretch ahead of the game in Dublin.

Bowe, a veteran of 58 internationals for the men in green, is yet to score a try in the Six Nations this season but certainly carries enough pedigree that the 14/1 (out from 10/1) on him scoring first holds interest.

The County Monaghan native has scored 14 of his 28 international tries in the Six Nations, three of which have come against England.

Perhaps and even more intriguing bet though is England centre Joseph, arguably the standout performer in the entire competition so far.

The Bath centre only got an opportunity to play in the tournament because of injuries to Brad Barritt and Manu Tuilagi, but has seized the chance with vigour.

In his first competition debut, on a fiery night at the Millennium Stadium against Wales, Joseph scored as Stuart Lancaster’s men grabbed an eye-catching win.

A week later the 23-year-old scored twice more as the Red Roses overpowered Italy and 16/1 now says he continues his scoring streak with the first against Ireland, a price out from 12/1.
