O2 MatchDay Live: Ireland v France

O2 MatchDay Live: Ireland v France

The excitement is building ahead of Ireland’s RBS 6 Nations clash with France at the Aviva Stadium. You can keep up-to-date with the match via our O2 MatchDay Live service right here on IrishRugby.ie.

O2 MatchDay Live is at the Aviva Stadium today for the new ground’s RBS 6 Nations debut. And what a match we have in prospect – Ireland, the Grand Slam champions of 2009, against France, who swept all before them last year.

When these teams met in Paris twelve months ago, the French outscored Ireland by three tries to one on the way to a 33-10 victory. Flanker David Wallace was the Irish try scorer.

At Croke Park in 2009, Jamie Heaslip, Brian O’Driscoll and Gordon D’Arcy all crossed the French whitewash in a memorable 30-21 triumph for Declan Kidney’s men.

We will have live text commentary of Ireland’s second match of the 2011 Championship direct from Dublin, with fit-again number 8 Heaslip coming in as the only change from the 13-11 win over Italy.
