  • Six Nations: Lessons learnt at World Cup can pay dividends for Ireland - BelfastTelegraph.co.uk
    lock Yoann Maestri and No 8 Damien Chouly are still in the match day squad with just three of that quintet starting By contrast Schmidt has picked 14 of the match day 23 at the Millennium Stadium with injury ruling out at least another half dozen likely to have been in the frame again If battered and bruised bodies have recovered from a crazy six day turnaround then this Ireland squad is good enough to make it back to back wins in the French capital for the first time since a run of success there between 1925 and 1929 I am excited by the ball carrying potential of this newly assembled Irish back row Tommy O Donnell did so much right and precious little wrong against the Welsh yet finds himself on the bench But once Sean O Brien was declared fit he had to come in This could be one of the great back row combinations to wear green yet the chemistry has still to be proved What better place to do it Much will depend on the performance of our tight five If Ireland keep a rein on the French scrum it s game on for Stander O Brien and Jamie Heaslip How we perform in the scrum will be absolutely paramount Devin Toner was a man possessed against the Welsh and he must demand at least that of himself again today Beyond that the Kearney bothers ought have little difficulty slotting in to the back three although Andrew Trimble will have his work cut out in tracking Virimi Vakatawa but no better man That and defending the wider channels with an even greater intensity and line speed from last week and in almost every other area we look strong Follow BelTel Sport How to Complain If you have a complaint about the editorial content of the Belfast Telegraph or Sunday Life then contact the Editor here If you are not satisfied with the response provided then you can contact the Independent Press Standards Organisation here From the web Sponsored Videos Your Comments COMMENT RULES Comments that are judged to be defamatory abusive or in bad taste are not acceptable and contributors who consistently fall below certain criteria will be permanently blacklisted The moderator will not enter into debate with individual contributors and the moderator s decision is final It is Belfast Telegraph policy to close comments on court cases tribunals and active legal investigations We may also close comments on articles which are being targeted for abuse Problems with commenting customercare belfasttelegraph co uk Powered by Livefyre Please enable JavaScript to view the comments powered by Livefyre Read More George Hook Johnny Sexton needs to go talk to his wife and parents new George Hook insists he will be angry if Johnny Sexton takes to the field for Ireland s next Six Nations clash against England in Twickenham at the end of the month Ireland girls dealt a blow in bid to retain Six Nations trophy new

  • George Hook: Simon Zebo has been inexplicably overlooked by Ireland and Munster - BelfastTelegraph.co.uk
    by the week Tomorrow in Paris Rob Kearney comes back into the starting XV in his familiar position His form for Leinster this season has been decidedly poor but just as the Ireland players looked reinvigorated against Wales last Sunday one would hope that Kearney will rediscover his own form at the Stade de France In terms of his positional sense and in defence Kearney will do a solid job But the role of full back requires so much more than catch and kick Maxime Medard was a man possessed for France against Italy last weekend offering himself as an attacking threat at every opportunity Zebo did the same for Ireland against Wales It is a long time since I can recall Kearney playing with similar verve and ambition If Ireland are to win in Paris we must ask questions of a patchy French defence There can be no room for absenteeism Italy provided a perfect blueprint on how to disrupt the French defence but it requires every Ireland player busting a gut to make themselves available for work Zebo would have been primed for the role Hopefully Kearney won t shirk away from his attacking responsibilities Luckily for Nathan White Guy Noves has opted to change up his front row and Jefferson Poirot comes in for Eddy Ben Arous at loosehead Poirot is quick and mobile for a prop but his scrummaging ability is decidedly average If White is unable to cope with the 23 year old at set piece he might as well hang up his boots The selection of Fergus McFadden among the replacements is massively underwhelming Surely Ireland has other exciting young backs coming through the ranks rather than a tried and tested winger that has flattered to deceive for several years Where is the invention Where is the new blood Another conservative tick against the head coach Sean O Brien s return to fitness is an obvious plus for the pack and the prospect of O Brien and CJ Stander carrying ball at the French defence is enough to whet the appetite But for Ireland this is already must win territory Last weekend s draw against Wales was one that got away and in order for Ireland to beat France in Paris they must defend well and stop the home side from offloading the ball Discipline will also be crucial Jules Plisson can t be allowed free shots at goal A third successive title is still within Ireland s reach but there is no more room for error France will throw the ball around so Ireland know what to expect Whether the visitors can muster the energy and intensity required to beat France in Paris after a bruising battle against Wales six days ago remains to be seen This one is too close to call Irish Independent Follow BelTel Sport Related Content Six Nations France v Ireland Five Ireland players with a point to prove How to Complain If you have a complaint about the
