Watch: Emotional Schmidt Hails 'Six Incredible Years' After His Final Home Six Nations Game

Ireland secured a bonus-point victory over France on Joe Schmidt's final home Six Nations game and the Irish coach cut a relieved figure post-match.

Victory over France ensures the Championship crown is still very much up for grabs next week. Speaking to Virgin Media Sport, Schmidt was full of praise while citing slight disappointment at the finish.

There was so much good in it. Probably just a little bit frustrated at the end. I think we wanted to force our way through to attempt to get four tries and it kind of felt once we got them, we backed off a little bit.

When asked about his final home Six Nations game, Schmidt paused briefly as he looked around before explaining, "It's been six incredible years for me, so yeah, I'll miss it."
