England must defy the odds to clinch 4 Nations crown
England have been priced as 15/4 underdogs to win their first major trophy in almost 40 years when they take on Australia in the 2011 Gillette Four Nations final at Elland Road, Leeds tomorrow (6.00pm).
William Hill, the official betting partner of the Gillette Four Nations, have priced England behind the Kangaroos, pricing the visiting side at 1/5 favourites and giving England a 12-point start on the handicap coupon.
England winger Ryan Hall has been in phenomenal form in recent weeks and after scoring two tries when the sides met at Wembley a fortnight ago, he has been installed at 11/1 to score the opening try of the game, narrowly ahead of Sam Tomkins and Tom Briscoe, both of whom are priced at 12/1.
Australian trio Akuile Uate, Josh Morris and Darius Boyd are evenly split at 9/1 as the favourites to score the opening try of the game.
