Ireland Go Unchanged For Six Nations Trip To France

Ireland Go Unchanged For Six Nations Trip To France
By PJ Browne

Ireland head coach Greg McWilliams has named an unchanged team for this weekend's Six Nations clash with France.

Last weekend, Ireland lost 27-19 at home to Wales in their opening game. McWilliams's side had held a 14-5 lead at the break but were overpowered by Wales.

"We are fully aware of the challenge facing us this weekend, but we’ve had a good week of preparation, taking the positives from our opening game and implementing the learnings on the training pitch," said McWilliams.

"It is a huge opportunity for us as a group to go and play one of the best teams of the world and test ourselves at this stage of our journey together."

Ireland play France in the Six Nations at 2:15pm on Saturday. The game will be shown live from the Stade Ernest-Wallon in Toulouse on RTÉ2.
