‘Super Saturday’ is upon us as Wales look to send Warren Gatland off in style in the Six Nations with a Grand Slam victory over Ireland.
Alex Jack takes us through his rugby union tips for the final round of matches to see who be victorious in three intriguing clashes.
Italy +10 full-time handicap @ 10/11 - BET NOW
Although the Azzurri are on the verge of another Six Nations wooden spoon, head coach Conor O’Shea will be able to take some positives going into the World Cup in Japan later this year.
Ignoring a thrashing in England last week, Italy have seen positives in their defeats to Scotland, Wales and Ireland this season. The Azzurri now welcome a France side who have only managed to beat an injury-plagued Scotland side this year and will have to produce one of their best performances so far to win on Saturday.
Italy are a tough nut to crack in Rome and they should push Les Bleus hard at the Stadio Olimpico. France might just edge it although Italy are certainly worth looking at in the rugby union handicap markets.
Wales to win @ 5/6 - BET NOW
The Welsh have their destiny in their own hands this weekend as they welcome reigning champions Ireland to the Principality Stadium for what will be Warren Gatland’s final Six Nations game at the helm.
Gatland’s side came into the Six Nations with form from the autumn international – yet still much of the talk was of Ireland and England battling it out for the big prize.
Having been plagued by injuries in past autumns and Six Nations campaigns, the Welsh have discovered real strength in depth in most positions. Cardiff Blues star Gareth Anscombe has been a revelation at stand-off and has shown he can be a reliable Test player alongside Northampton Saints fly-half Dan Biggar.
This might not be the prettiest Test match, with so much at stake, but Wales have the momentum, the crowd and the Gatland factor to get them the win - and to get the party started in Cardiff.
England -18 full-time handicap @ 10/11 - BET NOW
Not for a long time have England seemed so geared up for a Calcutta Cup match, having “had their pants pulled down” at Murrayfield last season. Those were the words of England boss Eddie Jones, who has spoken of the Scots’ celebrations in Edinburgh that day.
It’s a very different Scotland side that will head south of the border this weekend, with the likes of John Barclay, Ryan Wilson, Huw Jones, Blair Kinghorn and Stuart Hogg all definitely ruled out.
Scotland did show they can still compete without key players after they pushed Wales all the way at Murrayfield last weekend. However, England are on a different level at the moment and Scotland look highly unlikely to record their first win at Twickenham since 1983.
