You can also get double winnings as a free bet if your first tryscorer scores again in the match. Here are Tom Clee‘s rugby betting tips – including a tryscorer for each game – for the second round of fixtures.


Scotland to win by 1-10 points {ODDS:339961904:7/2}

Ireland don’t have a great record at Murrayfield, losing on three of their last four visits, and are missing a couple of key players after their mauling by England.

Scotland put together some impressive passages of play in a bonus-point win over Italy last weekend and, at this price, are definitely worth a punt to sneak it.

Over 48.5 total points {ODDS:339963145:11/8}

Four of the last five meetings between these two have produced 49 points or more.

Having both been involved in 52- and 53-point matches respectively last weekend, you’ve got to fancy the overs.

Sean Maitland to score a try {ODDS:376440962:2/1}

All four of England’s tries against Ireland were scored by outside backs, as were all five of Scotland’s against Italy.

It says a lot that Maitland has been recalled by Gregor Townsend in place of Blair Kinghorn, who bagged a hat-trick last weekend.

The winger has scored eight tries in his last 12 starts, including five in seven since the start of last year.


Wales to win by 21-30 points {ODDS:339961916:3/1}

Only a late rally stopped Italy’s defeat to Scotland last weekend from falling within this bracket.

That was their 18th Six Nations loss in a row, with six of their nine defeats at home during that run being between 16 and 31 points.

Despite Wales making widespread changes, this feels like the right ballpark.

Italy to score over 2.5 tries {ODDS:339963419:13/8}

Italy have scored at least two tries in their last six matches in this competition and three in each of the last two.

Wales conceded two away to France last time out and should ship a few more points away from home with an inexperienced team.

Liam Williams to score a try {ODDS:376440954:10/11}

Williams was inches from bringing this bet home last week after losing control of the ball while sliding for the line.

He’s got three tries in four Tests against Italy and should get plenty of chances to bag another against a defence that conceded five tries to outside backs last weekend.


England to win by 1-10 points {ODDS:339962018:12/5}

England were superb against Ireland last weekend and will surely back that up against a France side that managed to throw away a 16-point lead against Wales.

That’s not to say it won’t be close, with 11 of the last 12 meetings between these two being decided by 10 points or fewer.

England to get a yellow card {ODDS:375333194:13/5}

Tom Curry’s needless sin-binning for a late tackle was the only stain on England’s otherwise excellent performance in Dublin.

They’ve received five yellows in their last seven matches against France and, without Maro Itoje, will be put under more pressure than normal in the loose.

Manu Tuilagi to score a try {ODDS:375180138:5/2}

Tuilagi saw plenty of the ball last weekend, never failing to get over the gain line.

He’s got two tries in two Six Nations matches against France and, with the Les Bleus’ midfield looking more lightweight than usual, is a tempting option to score another.
