A crazy diagonal from Penaud and a controversial try: three crazy minutes from Ireland-France

For the moment, this clash between Ireland, the first nation in the world, and the XV of France, defending champion, counting for the second day of the Six Nations Tournament, keeps all its promises. Led by the XV of Clover following Keenan’s try (9th, 5-3), the Blues accelerated and found the fault in the Irish in-goal a few minutes later (18th, 7-11) on a very nice collective action. After a good combination with Jelonch, Damian Penaud resisted a tackle and left to flatten behind the Irish posts, thus scoring his 22nd try with the Habs.

But a few minutes later, the French could not prevent the new Irish test. On the left wing, James Lowe pulled away to flatten despite a desperate defensive return from Damien Penaud. The referee finally granted the try after viewing the VAR because the Leinster player had not put his foot in touch before scoring (12-13, 21st). The Blues will have a lot to do in Dublin to win their 15th consecutive match in all competitions and to defend their title.
