Wilkinson 1/6 to feature for Lions

Jonny Wilkinson has been cut to 1/6 by Ladbrokes to join up with the Lions squad on the tour of Australia after hinting he could figure.

The fly-half is also 5/4 at Ladbrokes to score a drop goal in any tour match and he’s a 4/1 shot to start the first Test against Australia against on June 22nd. Ladbrokes meanwhile make Jonny Sexton 1/8 to take the number ten shirt and Owen Farrell is the 9/2 outsider.

Jessica Bridge of Ladbrokes told Betrescue: “The odds suggest Jonny needs to start packing his suitcase. Farrell came under criticism over the weekend and he could soon fall out of favour completely should Gatland have the choice between Sexton and Wilkinson.”

Elsewhere, Mike Phillips’s odds of starting the opening clash with the Wallabies have been cut to 1/3 by Ladbrokes after a man-of-the-match performance in the first tour match against the Barbarians.

The Lions remain at 8/11 via Ladbrokes to win the Test series, they’re 7/1 to win all of their remaining matches and Alex Cuthbert, who bagged two tries against the Baa Baas, is 3/1 to be the top Test tryscorer.

Ladbrokes’ Jessica Bridge added: “It was a walk in the park for the Lions and it’s made punters even more excited to get going against Australia. Cuthbert made an impressive start on the wing and the odds suggest he’ll be lining up against Australia.”

She continued: “However, It’s hard to read too much into the performance as the Baa Baas were second rate and that’s why the 8/11 remains unchanged.”
