I'M not that keen on tipping the rugby but having read some previews it looks like Scotland have a decent chance of beating England in Saturday's opener.

The Scots haven't lost to England at home since 2004 and have a more experienced side than their rivals who have made massive changes to their squad.

England are 4-1 with Paddy Power to bounce back from their World Cup woes by winning the crown but World Cup finalists France are 6-4 favourites and 4-1 to complete the Grand Slam.

Wales, despite their injury problems, are 3-1 second favourites to lift the trophy and Ireland the same price as England.

With France such hot favourites Paddy Power are offering 8-15 on any other team winning the championship while the betting without France shows how close the other nations are with Wales at 7-4 and England and Ireland both at 15-8 to be the best team without our Gallic cousins.

England winger Chris Ashton is the 8-1 joint favourite with France’s Vincent Clerc to be the tournament’s top try scorer.

The Scotland v England opener can be expected to give Stuart Lancaster a baptism of fire in his first game in charge but with no Chris Paterson to kick the goals for Andy Robinson’s men England are 8-13 to start the new era with a win.

Scotland are 13-8 and I'll be on them at 10-11 plus three points.
