Jacques Brunel has named his starting XV to take on Ireland on Sunday in the penultimate round of the 2019 Guinness Six Nations championship.
France have named an unchanged starting XV for Sunday’s trip to Dublin and it seems the Brunel is happy with what his side produced as they recorded their first win of the campaign in round three.
The bonus-point 27-10 win over Scotland was their best performance of the competition so far and Brunel will hope that the likes of Thomas Ramos, Antoine Dupont and Romain Ntamack will pose some serious problems for Joe Schmidt’s side.
