Six Nations LIVE: France 17-38 Ireland – Ireland secure historic win over rusty France

France host Ireland in the Six Nations opener as both sides look to recover from their World Cup losses.

This also looks to be the deciding game on who will win the Six Nations as they are both big favourites for this year’s Championship.

With Dupont preparing for this year’s Olympics and Ntmack injured, France head coach Fabian Galthie has started Maxime Lucu at scrum half and Matthieu Jalibert at fly half. For Ireland this will be their first Six Nations without Johnny Sexton since 2009 who retired after the World Cup. Head coach Andy Farrell starts Munster’s Jack Crowley at fly half.
