True Live Betting fans that bet on rugby with a pay per head sportsbook can’t wait, as on Saturday, Billy Twelvetrees will make his England debut in the Six Nations opener against Scotland.
Price per head sportsbooks found out that the Gloucester centre, 24-years-old, will replace Manusamoa Tuilagi, who misses the Twickenham match due to an ankle injury.
The only other change from the side that were able to defeat New Zealand in December will see prop Joe Marler replace Alex Corbisiero, who won’t be able to play during the entire tournament with a knee injury, and this has many True Live Betting fans using a price per head sportsbook very concerned.
David Strettle, Dylan Hartley, and Toby Flood are selected on the replacements’ bench in the place of Jonathan Joseph David Paice, and Freddie Burns, respectively.
England head coach Stuart Lancaster said: “We are happy to stick with the team that did so well against New Zealand, especially in light of the fact that they have all been in good form for their clubs since then.
“There were some very tight calls, with some experienced players coming back into contention, and I am sure the bench will have a significant impact on the game.
“We can’t wait to get back to Twickenham and hopefully experience the same atmosphere as the autumn when the crowd was superb. It means a lot to the players to have such support in the ground and watching on television.”
Pay per head sportsbooks saw Twelvetrees join Gloucester from Leicester before the 2012-13 season, and has played 18 times for the west country side this season, scoring two tries.
On his selection, Lancaster added: “This is a great opportunity for Billy. I coached him in the Churchill Cup. It was a winning side, he played number 12 and I could see then he had lots of potential and physicality.
“Moving to Gloucester has been a big help. His confidence has shone through. I have every confidence in him going into the game.”
