France confirmed their position as favourites to win this year’s Six Nations as they came out victorious over Ireland in Paris yesterday with a thrilling 30-24 win.

Despite being 15 points behind early on, quickfire tries from Josh van der Flier and Jamison Gibson-Park helped Ireland fight back.

However, Cyril Baille responded for France, before Melvyn Jaminet’s sixth penalty helped the hosts see out an important win.
