Boylesports have reported support for Ireland to win the 2014 Six Nations following the announcement of the squad by Joe Schmidt on Tuesday evening.

Ireland were available at 13/2 prior to the announcement and have now been cut into 5/1 following support on Tuesday evening. Currently, Wales are the 2/1 favourites to retain the trophy and win the tournament for the third consecutive year.

England last won the tournament in 2011 and are currently 5/2 second favourites whilst France, who haven’t won the tournament since 2010, are priced at 11/4.

The Grand Slam wasn’t won last year and currently 8/13 is available on No Winner whilst Wales, who last achieved the Grand Slam in 2012, are priced at 6/1 to repeat the success.

Liam Glynn, PR Executive at Boylesports said “Following the naming of the Ireland squad on Tuesday evening, we seen a surge of interest in Ireland to win the Six Nations. We laid bets at 13/2 and slashed Joe Schmidt’s squad into 6/1 but the demand still continued.”

He added “We have had to shorten Ireland even further into 5/1 and if Schmidt’s squad can manage to win the Six Nations, we will be facing big pay outs as they are currently our worst Ante Post result.”
