"If Wales win the RBS Six Nations, it would be a catastrophic nightmare for us," Jack Brown spokesman, Karl Williams, admitted. "If they win the Grand Slam, we'll have to shut our doors! Even the Triple Crown would be a disaster."
Jack Brown have slashed their odds on Welsh success in this year's tournament. Wales to win the RBS Six Nations title is rated a 16-1 chance, the Triple Crown a 16-1 chance and the Grand Slam a 33-1 chance, in from 100-1 a week ago.
"Our biggest bet is £250 at 33-1 on Wales to win the Triple Crown, so that person stands to win £8,500 and we have a £100 bet on the Grand Slam at 66-1," Williams said. "We have literally thousands of bets on Wales winning the title. Saturday's result was bad enough for us, everyone bet on Wales winning with a ten point handicap, which they did."
Despite the fans' optimism, Jack Brown are making Wales 2-1 outsiders for this weekend's match against Ireland (1-3).
"We feel that Ireland scored seventeen points against a good team away from home and without Brian O'Driscoll and Wales scored only twenty-three points against a dire team at home," Williams said. "I think the 2-1 odds will attract a lot of money."
