Wales to give France the blues

Warren Gatland

The Six Nations kicks off on Friday night with what should be an electric encounter between France and Wales in Paris.

Wales to win @ 20/21

Head coach Warren Gatland will look to finish his time with Wales on a high and a positive start for the Kiwi coach is vital at the Stade de France.

Wins over bogey team Australia and also South Africa last autumn show signs for optimism in the Welsh camp, and they will fancy their chances against a France side that have won just three of their last 14 Tests.

Considering their strength in depth, with the likes of half-backs Dan Biggar and Gareth Davies on the bench, Wales should have enough to get the win in Paris.

Scotland to win by 21-30 points @ 47/20

The Scots have been handed a rare first game against the Italians at Murrayfield and it is the ideal fixture to get off to a flying start in the tournament.

Scotland ran out 29-0 victors on Italy’s last visit to Edinburgh, so Gregor Townsend’s side should fancy their chances of winning by a similar margin on Saturday.

Ireland to win by 1-10 points @ 17/10

In the pick of the weekend’s fixtures, champions Ireland prepare to host old rivals England at the Aviva Stadium on Saturday.

The Irish are the favourites to retain their title and nothing from the autumn suggests they don’t have a great chance of doing that, especially after securing a first win over New Zealand in Dublin.

England do have the ability to cause Ireland real problems in this encounter but over the course of the 80 minutes, Joe Schmidt’s men might just have the systems in place to get over the line against Eddie Jones’ Red Rose.
