Bite the bullet and pile in on Ireland doing job on English

Let's forget about Paris and all that has happened there in the past few months and look onwards and upwards, beginning with the mammoth clash of England and Ireland in the Six Nations at Twickenham tomorrow afternoon.

Boylesports are unable to split them and its even money each of two for a match that should decide the Tri-Nations.

The Betting Book genuinely believes Ireland can triumph despite the fact that they are on their travels. This is one of those occasions when as a punter you bite the bullet and just dive in and that's what the Betting Book will be advising this weekend.

Ireland to win is even money so that is advised, and if that is to be the right call a couple of other bets stand out.

If we are to win, Jonny Sexton is going to have to step up to the mark and justify his selection so therefore he will have to win the match bet on points with Johnny Wilkinson -- also priced up at even money.

In the race to 10-points in the Boylesports Specials, Ireland are 10/11 and that may be worth including, while Ireland to win by six-10 points is a more risky 5/1 chance.

The first tryscorer can be a lottery, but Jamie Heaslip is the Betting Book's proposal at 18/1.

Elsewhere, France look to be able to give seven points to Wales in the handicap for those interested in the 10/11, while take a chance on Italy beating Scotland at 7/4.
