Ireland make flying start to Six Nations

Ireland made a flying start to the Six Nations championship on Saturday by defeating France 30-21 at Croke Park in Dublin.

It was the first victory in eight matches for the Irish against France and provided a perfect start for coach Declan Kidney on his Six Nations debut.

The match was a gripping affair, decided eventually by replacement centre Gordon D’Arcy’s try 15 minutes from fulltime. Ireland captain Brian O’Driscoll, back to his best form in the centres, also scored.—Reuters
