That could be a good bet.

Keith Earls has looked. Well quite honestly he's looked like an absolute madman escaped from his asylum running amok on that wing lately. He's a good bet.

There won't be a French player, this you can book. I'd say maybe K.Earls, Hogg or one of the English players because that team generates so many great attacking situations and use the widths more than Ireland, whoever's on form, Watson or some guy there.

Ireland have Italy at home, Stockdale looks favourite to start alongside Earls and has 4 tries in 4 caps and is 1 in 2 at provincial level. If fit I expect him to score a fair proportion of Ireland's tries.

Tommy Seymour is 16/1 with Betfred which is not a bad bet and he could bag a few today against the Welsh

But I still think that Earls is the best bet

Last year’s, per Wiki;

Quote:
Top try scorer(s)
Eight players
England Danny Care (3)
Ireland Keith Earls (3)
Ireland Craig Gilroy (3)
Scotland Stuart Hogg (3)
England Jonathan Joseph (3)
Wales George North (3)
Ireland CJ Stander (3)
Wales Liam Williams (3)


In 2014, Jonny Sexton and Mike Brown tied with 4 each.

Johnny May for me. A lot of England's attacking play gets funneled to him. Gareth Davies is a sneaky outsider. Kid has gas and an eye for a break.

it'll probably be someone that starts (or at least plays in) all five games, which rules out a lot of the likely contenders in the English backs given we're probably going to rotate at 13 with Te'o, Nowell and Joseph, as well as switching around on the wings once Daly is back available for the second half of the 6N. more likely is one of the English 9s

Keith Earls isn't a bad shout if he plays all five games - if the Scots go well I could see Hogg as a possibility too

May is top of the list with both PP and Betfred , 9/1 with PP and 8/1 with Betfred

unless he plays a blinder in the first few games, May will probably be out of the side once Daly is fit

I'd go with Jalibert. To score one or two in the early stages of the tournament before opponents have worked him out and setting an impossibly high mark when France put Italy to the sword.

This is a distinct possibility. Opposing teams know Hogg is a threat but I don’t think they have realised how dangerous Jones is yet. The fact that he scored twice at Twickenham last year was overlooked due to the final result.

Daly is out for the whole 6N

As things stand Teddy Thomas is top as far as I know with 3 tries will he finish as the top try scorer ? and there are quite a few on 2 tries Stockdale , Henshaw , May , Watson

Anymore on 2

Thomas will miss out on Italy though, so his chances have taken a big blow. Henshaw, unfortunately, is also out of the race.

So annoyed I gave up on Betfair. Thomas was 1/100 to be top try scorer this morning (although I don't know how much was available at that price). I thought that'd be a great one to lay a tenner on.

He's now 2/1.

Eh, yes, that was the reason for the change.

It is hard now to see Stockdale being overtaken and he could yet score another one or two

Wales have played Italy already. Might be hard to crack France, no?

France have the best defence in the tournament, I believe, but I'd expect Wales to be able to score a try at home against them. Away, I wouldn't be too sure.

Yeah, but he posted that before Wales had played Ireland (3 tries) and Italy (5 tries) so it was a pretty reasonable question, I think.
