Matthieu Jalibert set for France debut in Six Nations opener

Last-gasp Sexton drop-goal stuns France

France are under investigation by Six Nations officials for the second time in a year after being accused of abusing the concussion protocols in their defeat by Ireland on Saturday.

"We try to put pressure on any fly-half we come up against, so it will be no different with Jalibert this weekend".

Joe Schmidt, the Ireland head coach, believes his side never made the most of the advantages they created.

"That is probably one of the big lessons for us from previous year: the autumn form".

And Brunel is sure that Jalibert, who says he wants to emulate England's Andy Farrell, will have no problem dealing the intensity the Irish will no doubt bring to the Stade de France cauldron.

Justin Timberlake's Super Bowl Halftime Show Will Reportedly Feature A Prince Hologram
The real Justin Timberlake will not use a Prince hologram. "So the answer is yes, there will be unreleased Prince music coming soon", Carter added.

"I don't think just because we won that it should be swept under the carpet".

France went into the tournament off the back off a bad autumn campaign in which they failed to win any of their four fixtures.

Soon they earned a penalty which the ever-reliable Sexton converted. I don't think there is any better place to be than in between Johnny Sexton and Robbie Henshaw.

Speaking on OTB AM, the former Ireland captain discussed French scrum-half Antoine Dupont's injury towards the end of Saturday's match.

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".

Heart risk increases from breast cancer therapies
Just as Tonda Gonce won her fight against breast cancer, she quickly found out there was a whole new battle in front of her. The possible side effects from the treatment dont sink in when youre fighting for your life, she said.

"However, the squad have had good preparation over the last two weeks and are excited and focused on the challenge at hand to start our campaign off with a positive performance".

The 19-year-old will make his test debut just three months after starting his first Top 14 match for Bordeaux.

"Wales are unusual outsiders at 15/1 to go all the way despite having the experienced British and Irish Lions head coach Warren Gatland, this is mainly down to them missing a host of star players through injury and introducing a new brand of free-flowing rugby". It took Sexton just two minutes to take both his and Ireland's tally to 12 points before Machenaud halved the lead once again 10 minutes later.

Because I can't deal with the "Ja, that's what happens when you play an inexperienced flyhalf" comments if he doesn't... So I'd hope that it's not.
