Six Nations Championship 2024: France & Ireland Eyeing a Grand Slam

The 2024 Six Nations Championship will provide rugby union fans with a feast of betting opportunities during February and March. 
Leading UK betting apps cannot split France and Ireland in the outright betting, with both teams capable of winning the Grand Slam if everything falls into place. 
Read on as we assess some of the key betting trends to consider in the tournament, before looking at the bookmakers’ latest ante-post odds. 


  • Fixture list favours France.
  • Farrell faces more heartbreak with Ireland.
  • England could be dark horses.

Key Home Games Give France the Edge

A favourable fixture list gives France a good chance of winning the Grand Slam – a feat they have achieved on four previous occasions since the tournament expanded to six teams in 2000. 
Each of those successes came in even-numbered years (2002, 2004, 2010 & 2022) when their home matches included clashes against Ireland and England. 
As those two teams are their main rivals for the title, odds of 5/2 on numerous new betting sites for France to win the Grand Slam look good value. 

Ireland Could Flatter to Deceive Again

Ireland were the dominant force in the 2023 Six Nations, but could struggle to repeat the trick given they must visit France and England during the tournament. 
Head coach Andy Farrell has lost the services of influential captain Johnny Sexton, while injuries to other key players could scupper his team’s title hopes. 
Odds of 11/8 on UK betting sites to claim top spot make limited appeal given that Ireland failed to live up to expectations at the 2023 Rugby World Cup in France. 

England Worth Chancing in the Triple Crown Market

While Ireland failed to justify their status as pre-tournament favourites at the World Cup, England defied the odds to reach the semi-finals. 
They will fancy their chances of enjoying a productive Six Nations campaign, with the fixture list favouring them aside from their trip to France. 
Odds of 9/2 on some of the best betting apps to win the Triple Crown by beating Wales (H), Scotland (A) and Ireland (H) look well worth chancing.
