Sexton savours Irish Six Nations title win

Guilhem Guirado led Jacques Brunel's French squad through a light workout on Friday

"It's not like that now but there are still areas of their game that decide how much energy they have got, so we have got to beat them in those areas - on the gainline and in the scrum".

The English forward pack had a torrid time in Edinburgh and lost the crucial breakdown battle and the shell-shocked Englishmen conceded 13 penalties. As aberrations go at this level Scotland's lack of accuracy even trumped Johnny Sexton's four missed kicks against Wales last time out.

'So to be able to do it is very special.

"Ireland like to keep a hold of the ball so we need to get the ball back as much as we can and keep a hold of it ourselves and we did that well in the corresponding fixture past year".

Scotland caused them problems with their clever attacking game, but they too often botched their own opportunities.

"We haven't talked about the bigger picture of the championship at all - just putting in a good performance against Ireland", said the defence chief. We didn't match their intensity. "We have to learn from this".

Noel McNamara's team treated the crowd at a rainy Donnybrook to another edge of the seat ride that combined some excellent passages of play and individual skills with defensive errors and sloppy mistakes.

"The score line didn't show the competition in the game", he said.

Best discounted Scotland's poor away record in the tournament which, without counting traditional whipping boys Italy, has seen them win just two of their last 37 on the road.

They very almost recovered - despite giving away 16 penalties - to win the game at the last, but they never threatened to score four tries, meaning Ireland could celebrate a week early, France claiming a 22-16 win on the day.

Eddie Jones insists England are negotiating an inevitable slump where the "game does not love you" after France handed Ireland the Six Nations title by prevailing 22-16 in Paris.

However after loses to Scotland and now France, the possibility of three in a row is now a real possibility. Jones has now opted for a back three full of gifted runners. England and France is one of the more traditional rivalries. He has a lot of tricks up his sleeve and he's a very skilful player.

Having bounced back with an assured display against England, Russell will have brushed away any doubts and will head to Dublin ready to impress alongside the ever-steady Greig Laidlaw.

Ireland went all out for the fourth try.

Wales face France in their final match at the Principality stadium and have the advantage of kicking off last. He is a world-class player who is on his game going into the Ireland match.' Laidlaw and Russell (below) will have to get the better of two players they know and hugely respect against Ireland to make their mark.
