But it’s France, who are currently top of the standings after picking up a bonus point.

The French struggled to come out of blocks at home against Italy at the Stade de France last Sunday.

However, they eventually ran in five tries to secure a 37-10 victory.

Before the match, Ireland head coach Andy Farrell said: “We know how difficult it is to go to Paris. We’re lucky, I guess, to be on a winning streak.

“You are always hungry for a good start and we managed to do that. We will heal our wounds and prepare properly for the French test.

“It’s the test of all tests, isn’t it, right now?” Everyone knows how well he plays. »

And that test has become even tougher with the news that captain Johnny Sexton has been ruled out with a hamstring injury.
