The second Round 2 game of this year’s Six Nations Championship sees France and Ireland go head-to-head.

Following Wales' earlier win against Scotland, it means only Ireland and France are unbeaten in the competition so far.

Those two will go head-to-head at the Stade de France this evening kicking off at 4.45pm.

Whoever wins that match will be in pole position going into round three being the only team to have not lost a game.

Unless of course it is a draw.
