Jack The Lad
Backed up his good performance in Dublin with 16 carries for 185 metres against Scotland, making four clean line breaks along the way.
Last week we benefited from Paddy Power’s 1st tryscorer refund when Jack Nowell crossed late in the game and it’s worth repeating the trick.
Paddy Power are refunding bets if your 1st tryscorer selection scores anytime, therefore it makes sense to focus on the high (tryscoring) games. That rules out anything involving Ireland.
England currently lead the tryscoring table with 11 and that is despite butchering half a dozen opportunities against Scotland last weekend. If I were Stuart Lancaster I wouldn’t be too worried, it’s when the opportunities dry up that you should be concerned.
Seven days ago we highlighted the excellent game Jack Nowell had against Ireland and he followed that up with another display of attacking brio against Scotland.
The Exeter wing made 16 carries for 185 meters, with four clean line breaks and eight defenders beaten.
He was England’s leader in all four attacking metrics and I’m surprised more wasn’t made of his performance. The bookmakers have been slow to appreciate his talents and at 11/1 (Paddy Power) he is a great first tryscorer bet with a good chance of a refund.
