Ireland v France preview

"I can’t put it into words really. The lads stuck in there in a physical battle and came out with the win”

Stephen Barry - Irish Examiner

It is...a major fillip for Schmidt with Ringrose’s creativity and intelligence with the ball exactly what Ireland’s attack needs, while his defensive nous will be key

Ryan Bailey -

"When those players are up around 20-30 caps and then our other caps are up around 60-70, that would be our succession plan in place really."

Cian Tracey - Irish Independent

This clash is balanced in the favour of the visitors, no doubt. Yet no follower of rugby should count out the Scots.

Scott Hornell - Last Word On Rugby

"...we will play ambitious rugby and bring the game to England when we get the opportunity because we have got some brilliant talent in this team."

Gerard Meagher - The Guardian
