The six nations resumes this weekend for matchday two.

France host defending champions Ireland on Saturday looking to maintain their perfect start to this year’s edition.

Les Blues needed a last-gasp penalty to see off Italy last weekend and have made six changes from that team including the selection of two new props, Jefferson Poirot and Uini Atonio.

Ireland meanwhile welcome back British and Irish Lions Sean O’Brien and Rob Kearney from the injuries.

The pair missed last weekend’s draw with Wales.

Dave Kearney has been brought in to replace Keith Earls on the wing while backs Johnny Sexton and Andrew Trimble have overcome slight injury concerns and have been cleared to play.

Wales take on Scotland later in the day while in the Sunday game England travel to Italy.
