Ireland Superb !
Saturday, 7th February 2009

Ireland - 30

France - 21

Ireland beat France in a sensational rugby match in Croke Park this evening. Many wondered which French team would turn up and it wasn't long before we found out... it was vintage Les Bleus ! They came at Ireland in waves for the first half hour but, unlike previous performances, Ireland did not wilt and even responded to the early pounding with a fantastic try of their own from Leinster number 8, James Heaslip.

Two more fabulous tries from Leinster players Brian O Driscoll and Gordon D'Arcy ensured an epic victory and left France deflated.

Ireland now go on to face Italy in Rome next week in the next round of the championship.
