Ireland keep their Six Nations campaign on track with win over France

Ireland keep their Six Nations campaign on track with win over France

"And we're in a corner now", he said.

However, there will be concern within the Irish camp about their second slow start in three games.

"We will continue to work and above all we won't give up".

"The two sides were under pressure and we were very happy to come out on top". I don't have the impression that we're making progress, but we improved, that's for sure. He actually felt good, he felt fresh, I think, for some of the others they have accumulated knocks and fatigue. Attacking in the "22" is, modern coaches argue, the most hard place to make a break because all of the opposition defenders are in the line, but it doesn't seem to bother Scotland, who are showing Ireland the way in this department.

Head coach Schmidt expects England to extend their winning streak, but has insisted Ireland can ill afford to pick apart the title-race permutations ahead of their daunting trip to Cardiff.

Tommy Seymour and Tim Visser crossed the try line for Scotland, with Wales labouring, and the boot of Finn Russell earned the hosts a total of 19 points as they prevailed 29-13.

Ireland looked to have the game by the scruff of the neck entering the final 20 minutes, but time and again France's defence kept them in the match.

Doug McDermott traded from Chicago Bulls to Oklahoma City Thunder
Payne, 22, was selected 14th overall in 2015 by the Thunder and in 77 career games is averaging 5.3 points and 2.0 assists. McDermott was drafted by the Denver Nuggets in the 2014 draft, but was traded to Chicago shortly after.

The stand-off gave Ireland further breathing space with another penalty in the 55th minute as the French failed to cope with the slippery conditions caused by steadily falling rain.

Andy Farrell has copped his fair share of flak for the rate at which Ireland were leaking tries but he deserves huge credit as his side didn't concede a try for the first time since he came into the job past year.

"We've now doubt that they will be disappointed with that [loss] and will be very determined when we get to Cardiff", he said.

"Conor (Murray) and Johnny led that".

The disappointing thing for me is that we only had four line breaks and that will not be enough against Wales or England.

"We'll sit down and look at what we did well, and what we didn't do well".

The ramifications from what happened against Scotland are still in their minds. This should have been step two on a journey towards a Grand Slam and the fact that it's not devalued the record points total and everything that came with it.
