Gordon D'Arcy has taken complete responsibility for France's try, which cost Ireland the game in last week's RBS Six Nations Game. He now anxiously waits to find out whether he will be punished for allowing Aurelien Rougerie to brush by him, causing the 22-25 defeat.

His mistake in the game against France comes on the back of a poor performance against Italy; however, Ireland won that match.

Irish coach Declan Kidney has dismissed the notion that changes for the line up in Murrayfield next week will be inevitable but D'Arcy still maintains that he could be facing the axe.

He said: "I made one mistake against France, but unfortunately it was a costly one ... But I thought I played well apart from that so I'll just have to wait and see what happens.

"Obviously I will be nervous like everyone else, especially after you lose and you're wondering whether the coach is going to make changes or not.

"But there's nothing I can do at this stage, there's no match that I can get back out there and play. I can only control what I can control because selection is up to Declan."
