9 New Caps In Ireland U20 Team For 6 Nations Opener.

France hooker Tolofua out of 6 Nations with neck injury

Seven Leinster players have been selected by Schmidt for the match at the Stade de France, while Munster have four players in the starting XV in Paris.

Having returned from injury in time for the last November series, the former Cooley Kickhams GAA player is set to earn his 79th cap and 75th start against the French.

Brian O'Driscoll has described as "disgraceful" the Head Injury Assessment (HIA) controversy which marred Ireland's dramatic Six Nations win over France.

Wales host Scotland in the first game of the competition from 2:15.

"I was just happy to get another chance to get victory for the boys", said Sexton after his drop-goal heroics.

It continues a trend in France over the past year in which a number of talented young half-backs have been thrust onto the global arena. I don't think there is any better place to be than in between Johnny Sexton and Robbie Henshaw.

Ireland had led since the third minute through Sexton's first penalty and two more successful kicks, sandwiching Maxime Machenaud's score, had the visitors 9-3 ahead at the break.

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.

Both sides had been limited to penalties until Thomas provided the outstanding moment of quality, collecting a kick on the halfway line before bursting past Rob Kearney and outpacing three more Ireland defenders on his way over the line. "One of the reasons is to find out", said Schmidt when asked if Ryan was ready for such a challenge.

"We want to be able to keep building in that position (of second row), it's a position we probably don't have huge depth in".

Jones, who is famed for his psychological banter, said: "I'm excited by our prospects, particularly as we have been written off".

He noted 19-year-old Jalibert's debut was cut short earlier "when he, too, hurt a knee in collision with Bundee Aki's". "We felt he went really well against Montpellier recently (for Leinster in the European Champions Cup pool clash) against what is a very big side". "We've got a few young guts pushing through that we've given opportunities to and James is obviously one of those".

Though Ireland seemed to have control of the contest for long stretches, handling and errors and breakdown issues meant they struggled to shake off Les Bleus and the six-point lead was duly proven to be not enough when Teddy Thomas carved Ireland open to make us all fear the worst.

"I'd hope that it's not".
