Coral go 5/2 for any Home Nations heroes to win Rugby World Cup

| 20.09.2015

To celebrate the start of the 2015 Rugby World Cup here in the UK, Coral are offering all customers an awesome offer where it pays to be patriotic.

For a limited time only, we can give punters odds of 5/2 for any of the Home Nations to win the tournament outright. That means your eggs will not all be in one basket with host country England, but the bet will also be a winning one if Ireland, Scotland or Wales triumph.

Coral’s crazy offer is open to both new and existing customers, so you can still benefit from this if you’ve already signed up with us. You can stake a maximum of £20 on it, so stand to make £50 profit should one of the four British Isles sides triumph.

Why back the Home Nations to triumph? England are tournament hosts, with Wales also having a number of games taking place in Cardiff. At least one of those are expected to come through Pool A.

Ireland, meanwhile, are back-to-back Six Nations champions, so thus lead European rugby’s charge on the world stage. Drawn in Pool D against familiar foes France and Italy, Joe Schmidt’s side have clearly had the better of them in recent years.

Led on the field by legend Paul O’Connell, the Irish contingent will expect to make major inroads in this tournament and are well-equipped to do just that based on their successful retention of a major trophy just this spring.

Home advantage for Stuart Lancaster’s side could certainly help propel the team all the way to glory. Fantastic support from sports fans this year has already seen their England cricket counterparts scalp Australia and regain The Ashes, so being hosts of a major event should not be underestimated.

Wales and Scotland should also see surges of support from passionate fanbases, so this bet should make the next six weeks of Rugby World Cup action interesting. That fabulous 5/2 price on any Home Nation lifting the Webb Ellis Trophy will only be available for a limited time, so be patriotic with Coral!
