The French ruin everything


In a thrilling game in Croke Park, Ireland rallied back from a ten point deficit to take the lead, only to be denied victory by a late French try. France won 20-17, destroying the Grand Slam hopes of the Irish and preventing a first victory over France since 2003.

    At least it was a great game, unlike the two matches on Saturday. The Irish suffered from an inability to retain possession all afternoon and sadly paid for it in the end.
