Ireland v France

Series 2 - Episode 4 Ireland v France



Les Bleus face a tough visit to Dublin. With the likelihood of Irish fly-half Johnny Sexton returning from injury, Ireland should have the all-round game to avenge last year’s one-point defeat.


Ireland v France (Kick-off 4.50pm). Coverage of the match from the third round of fixtures, which takes place at Aviva Stadium in Dublin. Both nations enter this clash having lost their opening match of the tournament, but then winning their second, and will be keen to register a victory here to ensure they remain in contention for the title. Having lost a close encounter away to Scotland in round one, Ireland followed that up with a comfortable 63-10 away to Italy, whereas France were beaten by England at Twickenham in their first outing, but triumphed 22-16 over Scotland last time out. Presented by Mark Pougatch, with studio analysis from Brian O'Driscoll, Jonny Wilkinson and Gareth Thomas, pitchside analysis from Olivier Magne and Shane Williams, commentary by Miles Harrison, Gordon D'Arcy and Ben Kay, and reports from Gabriel Clarke.
