SCOTLAND rugby Legend Gavin Hastings is tipping Wales to win the Six Nations at odds of 37-20 on his unibet blog.
He also reckons Warren Gatland’s men will win the Triple Crown at 9-2 with Unibet.
The one-time Scotland and British Lions captain also tips George North to be top Six Nations try scorer at 6-1.

Meanwhile, the latest odds from William Hill suggest the Six Nations will be one of the closest in recent memory with Wales the narrow favourites at 11-5, closely followed by France and England both of whom are 9-4.
With so many teams in with a shout it will come as little surprise the odds suggest we will not see a Grand Slam this year at 4-6. There’s no stopping the most patriotic punters in the rugby world as Wales have been heavily backed for the Slam at 6-1 with bets of up to £500 placed with William Hill.
