Six Nations: France v Ireland - How the players rated

Rob Kearney - 5
Ominously dropped the kick-off, but recovered and gathered his own high kick during Ireland’s opening purple patch. Left injured before half-time and could be a doubt for Twickenham

Tommy Bowe -5
Another bad day in Paris. Horribly caught in no-man’s-land for Poitrenaud’s try and won’t have enjoyed having to pack down at flanker during Healy’s costly binning

Jamie Heaslip - 7
Came out with head held high in his match up with Harinordoquy

France outclassed Grand Slam holders Ireland to claima 33-10 victory in the Six Nations Championship on Saturday
