France Name Team To Face Ireland On Sunday

France have named their team to face Ireland in this weekend's Guinness Six Nations clash in Dublin.

Head coach Jacques Brunel keeps faith with the same starting XV and bench which faced Scotland last time out.

France won that game 27-10 in Paris having previously suffered defeats to Wales and England in their opening two games of the tournament.

The game will be a major test for the young Toulouse half-back pairing of Antoine Dupont and Romain Ntamack.
