Where are they now? The last Irish team to beat France in Paris
Keith Wood captained Ireland to a memorable win at Stade de France.

IRELAND HAVE BEATEN France in Paris just twice in the past 42 years. Joe Schmidt’s side will need to emulate the Irish team from 2000, who beat the French 27-25, if they are to win their first Six Nations championship since 2009.

This is where the heroes of the Stade de France are now.
