Ireland ready for France

Here we go again! Hope everyone is ready for the roller coaster ride that is the Six Nations.

Ireland have announced their team with Kidney making a few new tweaks in the form of Wallace at centre. An interesting choice especially against the French – this is no warm up game. Kearney, who has been on crutches this weak after a training incident, should be fit for Saturday taking up his preferred position of full-back.

The team is as follows:

Ireland: R Kearney; T Bowe, B O’Driscoll, capt, P Wallace, L Fitzgerald; R O’Gara, T O’Leary; M Horan, J Flannery, J Hayes, D O’Callaghan, P O’Connell, S Ferris, D Wallace, J Heaslip.
Replacements: R Best, T Court, M O’Kelly, D Leamy, P Stringer, G D’Arcy, G Murphy.
