Owens set to enter Six Nations record books

Six Nations: Team-by-team guide Six things to look out for in this year's Six Nations

France caught Ireland cold with Teddy Thomas' converted try edging Les Bleus into a late 13-12 lead, only for Sexton's added-time drop-goal to save the day.

Jones, who is famed for his psychological banter, said: "I'm excited by our prospects, particularly as we have been written off".

"It looked it might, and when it did, as a coaching team we all stood up as one and probably cheered with the other Irish supporters who were in the stadium".

They did well in the autumn to put a lot of points on Australia, but let's not forget that Australia side played most of the game with 14 men and still managed to score tries which is a concern.

Sexton then sent a penalty wide and, with six minutes remaining, France struck in glorious fashion. "The lads' legs were out". Does that say what we think it says?

If you ever wanted to know what "trust the process", means, just watch back the end-game. The chaos ended 41 phases later with Sexton slotting an absolute peach of a drop goal.

"Both players had knee injuries, but the independent doctor decided that by the protocol". So much effort for so little reward.

Six Nations organisers are reviewing two controversial uses of the head injury assessment (HIA) system during France's Six Nations defeat to Ireland on Saturday.

And even if he doesn't turn out to be as good as a Wilkinson or Carter, Brunel believes Jalibert could at least emulate versatile former global half-back Frederik Michalak, a player who made his France debut 16 years ago, just a month after turning 19. It came in the 83rd minute. Any nerves he might have had would have been when he was selected (for the squad two weeks ago) because that's when everyone took an interest in him.

Favourites England are looking to become the first side to win three successive outright titles, but England coach Eddie Jones has labelled Ireland as the team to beat.

"From the moment we thought he was up to playing at this level there was no reason not to pick him", said Brunel of a player who has made just 15 senior appearances since his Bordeaux debut in September. Never the most predictable of teams, they were even less so heading into this game.

France's evening went from elation to stunned disbelief in a frantic last 10 minutes that provided unexpected marvel to a scrappy contest in pouring rain.

The Racing 92 winger received the ball on the right flank before running the ball in from over half the field, beating Kearney on the outside before surging inside Stockdale and touching down.

Key moment: France replacement fly-half Anthony Belleau misses a 77th-minute penalty to seal victory in Paris and Ireland run the ball from deep, sniffing a final throw of the dice at 13-12 down.

Until that point, it looked like Sexton's steady boot would be enough to get the Irish only a third win at Stade France.
