Click here to read our guide to a little known loophole to makes �1000s from the bookies risk free

England (Best Available Price 2/1)
2010 finish - 3rd
Form � Three Six Nations tournaments
Player to watch � Ben Youngs adding the flair England will need.

Martin Johnson's team had a mixed autumn with a win over Australia the high point and a defeat to South Africa the low point. Surprisingly, England have only won one 6 Nations Grand Slam, in 2003 when Johnson was captain, and have yet to regain the trophy.

France (Best Available Price 13/5)
2010 finish 1st
Form � five Six Nations tournaments
Player to watch - Yannick Jauzion, speed, flair and physicality all on his side is one of the finest centres in the world.

The French have won more 6 Nations Grand Slams than any other team. Marc Lievremont's side suffered a humiliating defeat to Australia this autumn but are the current Six Nations holders and their clubs have taken half of this year's Heineken Cup quarter final places.

Ireland (Best Available Price 7/2)
2010 finish 2nd
Form � One Six Nations tournament
Player to watch � Johnny Sexton, Ireland will be hoping his star continues to rise this year

After a twenty four year wait, Ireland finally won the Championship in 2009. However last year they were defeated twice and lost at home to Scotland for the first time since 1998. 2011 marks their return to the redeveloped Lansdowne Road (now known as the Aviva Stadium).

Italy (Best Available Price 250/1)
2010 finish 6th
Form � Never won the Six Nations tournament
Player to watch - Scrum-half Edoardo Gori, will be under the spot light in his first tournament

The Italians have only won seven of their fifty five 6 Nations matches � all wins coming against either Scotland or Wales. They have finished in last place for three years running. But,  they pushed England close last year and this is the first season in which they have two clubs playing in a major European league � The Magners.

Scotland (Best Available Price 16/1)
2010 finish 5th
Form � Never won the Six Nations tournament
Player to watch � John Barclay will be key at the breakdown to earn shots a goal.

The Scots last won the tournament in 1999 and haven't finished higher than third since then. Last season they finished in fifth place for the third year running but lost three matches by less than a score and came close to a win at Twickenham.

Wales (Best Available Price 7/1)
2010 finish 4th
Form � Two Six Nations tournament
Player to watch � Shane Willliams, the only truly world class player in the Welsh backline will be crucial to the Welsh chances.

Despite winning Grand Slams in 2005 and 2008, Wales have the peculiar record of never having finished second or third since the Six Nations was established in 2000. Warren Gatland's team have only won three of their past fifteen matches and have a new captain in Matthew Rees.
