Ireland host France in the concluding fixture in the fourth round of Six Nation 2019 this afternoon, as the sides meet at the Aviva Stadium.
Despite defeat here in their opening match against England, Ireland still have aspirations of winning the title, and they’ll expect to take advantage of a French side that defeated Scotland last time out, but lost to Wales and England.
Ireland’s victory in Paris last year courtesy of a last-minute drop goal by Johnny Sexton proved the catalyst they needed to go on to win the Grand Slam, and France have it all to do to make this year’s contest as close.
Match coverage begins at 2.15pm on ITV and ITV HD, where Jill Douglas will be joined in the studio by Jonny Wilkinson, Brian O’Driscoll and Simon Zebo.
Sideline reports come from Gabriel Clarke and Dimitri Yashvili, while match commentary is provided by Miles Harrison and Gordon D’Arcy.
