Welcome if you are on your first visit, and or welcome back if you are a regular visitor!!
For the first time ever Oracle Rugby will preview a tournament in full
Third preview up is our EXPECTED 4th placer Wales
Oracle Rugby is not expecting much from the Welsh this year, they have been inundated with injuries and will be extremely lucky to get 3rd, in fact they are in an apparent dog fight with the Frenchies for 4th
The Six Nations is in its 19th year, it has been 5 long years since Wales tasted victory (2013) a year after they grabbed a Grand Slam, but there is no way on anyone’s green earth that they will get it this year
According to Sporting Index, my favourite spread betting firm on their 60/40/20/10/5/0 Tournament Index Wales are priced up at 16 – 19 i.e. a max buy at 1 unit for 3rd place, a more likely sell at 6 units to 10 for 4th and an even bigger sell at 11 units to 5 for 5th, they will definitely not come last!!
Wales, like France have a relatively easy run on paper, especially considering they have 3 home games, but the home games are against England & Ireland as is the case with France, in those two I am expecting Wales to get smashed in both. I see Wales winning one game with maximum points v Italy at Home. They are not going to beat Scotland and have a small chance v France in their last game, albeit a dead rubber for the tournament.
Expected Finishing Position: 4th (8pts)
Expected Log Points finish: 8 Maximum but I think it will be closer to seven
If you are looking for what I can only describe as an upset here are some outright prices available…
