The Irish team is battling it out against France in Paris today in Six Nations rugby, on a freezing cold day in Paris. Earlier this morning Ireland manager Declan Kidney sounded worried.

He spoke about France’s recent winning streak to RTE: “It's probably the ultimate challenge in Six Nations rugby when you see France have lost just twice in their last 20 Six Nations matches at home,” he said.

“Not many sides are capable of achieving a home record like that.

“We'll give it our best shot,” Kidney said.

But currently the French side is winning 17 - 3.

More to follow shortly.
