Ireland have just secured a try bonus-point at the Aviva Stadium in their Six Nations clash with France to keep their faint hopes of retaining their Six Nations title alive.
Rory Best got the men in green off the mark early on with a try after just three minutes. Johnny Sexton then combined beautifully with Garry Ringrose for Ireland’s second, before Jack Conan powered over for Ireland’s third not long after.
20 minutes into the second half Ireland had their bonus-point thanks to this beautiful lineout move straight out of Joe Schmidt’s playbook.
Keep a close eye on Keith Earls as he starts off in the lineout before breaking away to take a lovely pop of Stander to split the French defence in half.
