France v Ireland, Six Nations

Jacob Stockdale

When asked what he thought of before kicking the winning goal, the fly-half said: "I went back to many years ago when we played Treviso away and I was in an nearly identical position and just flashed back to that".

"It's odd to think I have never done a Calcutta Cup game before - when I do Ireland v France that will be my 80th Test match and the Calcutta Cup will be my 81st".

"I think he's settled and well integrated into the group", added Brunel.

"It was fairly inspirational, even the fact that so many people had to be involved".

Ireland's patience and composure was, indeed, remarkable.

Commentating for Irish radio station RTE, Corcoran goes completely nuts when Johnny Sexton executes a 42-meter drop-goal to win in the dying seconds of the match.

"Jalibert has settled in well, he's got his bearings and there is no reason not to start him", said Brunel, who was Jalibert's club coach before taking the France job. He hit one a year ago against England which was a cracking drop goal as well, or it might have been France actually, so he has got a few but not many.

United States of America to update nuclear arsenal in bid to match Russian Federation
Low-yield nuclear weapons have a strength of less than 20 kilotons, about the same power as the atomic bomb dropped on Hiroshima. The National Nuclear Security Administration also is considering moving at least some of this work to SC .

We touched on it a few times in the build-up to this Test, because all the logic pointing towards an Irish win had to be weighed against a whole lot of history to the contrary.

"That's a credit to Johnny because he had a bit of cramp at the time and was tired himself, but his clarity of thought and ability to win those big moments is second to none". "But his clarity of thought and ability to win those big moments is second to none".

That made it 9-3 to half-time after Ireland had dominated possession and the penalty count.

Matthieu Jalibert and Antoine Dupont were both forced off with knee injuries but were registered as requiring head injury assessments.

France coach Jacques Brunel named an experimental-looking side Thursday for his first match in charge since replacing Guy Noves, who was sacked after failing to win any of the four matches in the November test series. "We'll probably pay a very high price for this defeat". "That is the way we are going to carry on with the game", Owens told Johnny Sexton moments after repeatedly questioning one of his assistants about Dupont's injury. In Dupont's case, the HIA meant France were able to return their starting scrum-half to the fray.

"The HIA Review Processor is reviewing a number of incidents from the France v Ireland match in the senior men's championship", said Six Nations Rugby Limited (SNRL) in a statement.
