Pick Your Ireland Team To Take On France This Saturday
Three days to go.
Ireland will head into this year’s Six Nations absolutely brimming with confidence. A clean sweep in November was followed by Munster and Leinster steamrolling their way into the knockout stages of the Champions Cup, with the men in blue favourites to win the competition outright.
Schmidt has options everywhere on the pitch, with almost a clean bill of health in terms of his star names. Sean O’Brien will be missed, as will Garry Ringrose, but the likes of Josh van der Flier and Bundee Aki could slot in nicely.
Up first it’s a trip to Paris for Ireland. As mentioned previously, we’re not quite sure what kind of France team will show up at this year’s competition. But knowing Schmidt and his Ireland team, they will go about their job professionally and have every chance of winning.
But the question is, what team will take the field tomorrow? Schmidt names his side at 1.45pm tomorrow, but before that we want you to have a go at selecting yours below.
Once all the votes are totted up, we’ll post the team tomorrow ahead of Schmidt’s announcement.
