Former rugby player Austin Healey may be regretting his offer to bet every person in Wales £1 that England would win the Six Nations as he's being urged to pay up after Wales' 30-3 win.

Healey, who played 51 times for England, made the offer on Twitter, writing:


Happy to bet a pound with every person in wales that ENGLAND take the 6 nations next sat... I always knew it would come to this!!!

Not only was Healey inundated with tweets wanting to take him up on the bet, it was also seen by a Welsh news website, which asked its readers to take it.

WalesOnline reported yesterday that should Wales win the Six Nations, the former England rugby ace would owe its readers a total of £2,731 - and now the website's asking him to cough up the cash:

Healey, who has yet to say whether he'll make good on his offer, tweeted after the match:


Before you all start asking for a pound here's the legals ... Well played Wales !


Wales targeted Eng weaknesses and won game at the breakdown amazing cauldron and play from this years #rbs6nations champions


Good week off good banter never been tweeted at by an entire nation before #somuchfun
