PUT SIMPLY, IT is a game that neither side can afford to lose.

Ireland and France both have an ‘L’ on their copybook following their respective defeats on opening weekend.

And while they both bounced back with wins in Round 2 — Ireland taking a bonus point home from Rome — it is this afternoon’s clash in Dublin that will define the rest of the campaign for both nations.

Johnny Sexton is fit to start for Ireland, and the bookies have responded by making Joe Schmidt’s side seven-point favourites, but would you really be surprised if it is a whole lot closer than that?

Kick-off in the Aviva Stadium is at 4.50pm.
