Rugby Union: Six Nations - France v Ireland

7:30pm Saturday 11 February on BBC TWO

John Inverdale hosts live coverage from Paris as France take on Ireland.

Declan Kidney’s side scored three tries to France’s one when the sides met at the Aviva Stadium last year, but still ended up losing the match.

And Ireland do not have a good record in Paris, beating the French there just once in the past 40 years. That famous victory came in 2000, when Brian O’Driscoll scored a hat-trick of tries – the Irish captain has been ruled out of this year’s Six Nations after having shoulder surgery, but the visitors will still be hopeful of landing a rare victory in the French capital.

Commentary comes from Eddie Butler and Brian Moore.
