France Officials Unhappy Over Treatment By IRFU In Dublin

Ireland France Six Nations

There is a tension in the air between rugby officials in Ireland and France at present, and understandably so. With the decision for the 2023 World Cup hosting rights on the horizon, both nations are taking their bids up a notch.

France have been playing their Six Nations game with the text ‘France 2023’ on their shirts. Meanwhile, Ireland responded with a display on the big screens at Lansdowne Road after the full-time whistle on Saturday.

According to reports in French publication Midi Olympique, FFR officials were less than impressed with the treatment they received from their Irish counterparts on Saturday.
