SIX NA­TIONS RUGBY, RTE TWO, SATUR­DAY 4.30PM

Ire­land go into their first home match of this year’s Six Na­tions tour­na­ment in sec­ond place in the ta­ble, hav­ing lost their open­ing tie in Scot­land and then routed Italy in Rome. Nine tries and nine con­ver­sions in Rome was a good day at the of­fice. The challenge in the Aviva Sta­dium this week­end will be much more ro­bust and phys­i­cal with a mas­sive French team in the way. The fit­ness and se­lec­tion of Jonathan Sex­ton will be a ma­jor talk­ing point in the lead up to the ac­tion.
