England vs Wales RBS 6 Nations Odds

by Renee Israel

Favourite Wales vs Defending Champs England

The pick of the crop of this weekend's RBS 6 Nations Rugby clashes is undoubtedly England vs. Wales, which is set for Saturday, February 25 at Twickenham, the home of English rugby. Both teams have won their earlier two games and are tied at the top of the table with two wins and four points apiece.

Whenever these teams meet, adrenalin levels rise dramatically, not only for the players, but for fans and punters as well. Though tied on points, Wales are ahead on point difference having won their earlier games in a thoroughly convincing fashion. As such, Wales are the current favourites at the online betting sites, as shown by the RBS 6 Nations odds from Ladbrokes below.

However, despite being highly touted in the betting stakes, Wales coach Warren Gatland has warned his team not to get complacent ahead of their England vs. Wales 6 Nations Rugby showdown, especially since the media has greatly hyped up the match. "There is only one consequence of being built up and that is you get quickly knocked down," he said.

Another factor that will haunt Wales is the fact they've only won one match at Twickenham in the last 25 years. The silver lining, however, is that the solitary win took place during Gatland's tenure. To add to Wales' woes, former captain Matthew Rees failed a fitness test and thus will not play in the England vs. Wales game. Rees, who has been out of this RBS 6 Nations Rugby campaign, was expected to be fit for this crucial match.

The England vs. Wales rugby match is not only for the RBS 6 Nations Rugby title, but also for Triple Crown. The Triple Crown is a sub event between England, Wales, Ireland and Scotland. If any of these teams beats the other three, they win the Triple Crown. Wales has already defeated Scotland and Ireland, and if they beat England on Saturday, they only have to triumph against Ireland on March 17 to snag the Triple Crown honour.
