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.
