France host Ireland in the Six Nations 2020 decider on Super Saturday.

Ireland Six Nations

Welcome to Super Saturday (at Halloween). France will take on Ireland in a crucial Six Nations clash to round off the tournament approximately eight months after it started in February.


And there’s plenty riding on the remaining Six Nations fixtures, this showdown in particular.

Ireland currently sit top of the table but, by the time they face France, England are expected to have defeated Italy in a convincing manner.

That leaves Ireland with the task of dispatching a French side who also continue to harbour hopes of lifting the crown.

Should England demolish Italy as expected, Ireland and France are likely to need a bonus point victory over the other one to lift the trophy.

France v Ireland prediction

This game will be exactly what neither side wants it to be: close.

Both teams are desperate for a bonus point in this one, meaning we could be in for fireworks as they go hammer and tongs for big scores.

A noisy Parisian crowd may have tilted the odds further in France’s favour, but even though home advantage counts for little in 2020, the hosts should have enough quality to narrowly defeat Ireland, though that may not be enough to prevent England from triumphing overall.

Prediction: France win
