France Six Nations 2022 prediction

Consecutive second-place finishes have left France frustrated in the last couple of editions of the tournament.

They head into this one as favourites, but Ireland roll into Paris in Round 2 and if they can get the home crowd riled up against their own team, the Irish could land a potentially deadly blow to Fabien Galthié's men.

It feels like they won't get a better shot, but will they take it?

France will finish: 2nd
