Ireland v France stats and top performers

Ireland take the victory in France in the opening match of the 2024 Six Nations.

A complete dismantling by Ireland against a French team that looked undercooked, underprepared, under committed and under some sort of collective course of mogadon. Most of that was due to the pressure Farrell’s team put on right from the off and was merely exacerbated by the Willemse red card rather than caused by it.
