    Background: FRANCE BEAT IRELAND BY 11 POINTS TO SIX IN THE RUGBY UNION INTERNATIONAL IN PARIS TODAY (SATURDAY). THE WIN TOOK FRANCE TO THE TOP OF THE RUGBY UNION INTERNATIONAL CHAMPIONSHIP TABLE.

    FRANCE'S 11 POINTS CAME FROM A GOAL, A PENALTY GOAL AND TWO TRIES. IRELAND GOT THEIR SIX POINTS FROM A DROPPED GOAL AND A PENALTY GOAL. AT HALF TIME THE SCORES WERE LEVEL WITH THREE POINTS EACH.

    MORE THAN 35,000 FANS IN THE COLOMBES STADIUM CHEERED FRANCE TO THEIR SEVENTH STRAIGHT WIN OVER IRELAND IN PARIS. IRELAND ABANDONED THEIR NORMALLY ADVENTUROUS DASH FOR DISCIPLINE AND SYSTEM BUT TP NO AVAIL. FRANCE WERE UNDISPUTED MASTERS OF THE LINE-OUTS. THIS ENABLED THEM TO DOMINATE PLAY FOR THREE-QUARTERS OF THE MATCH. IN RETURN IRELAND'S GREATEST ASSETS WERE THEIR COURAGE AND FIERCE TACKLING.

    IRELAND SCORED FIRST WHEN FULL BACK T.J. KIERNAN DROPPED A 25-YARD AFTER NINE MINUTES. THEY HELD THIS LEAD FOR 25 MINUTES UNTIL FRENCH FULL BACK C. LACAZE SCORED FROM A PENALTY AFTER HAVING MISSED TWO EARLIER ATTEMPTS.

    IN THE SECOND HALF, FRANCE'S SUSTAINED ATTACKS FINALLY PAID OFF. THEIR BRILLIANT WING THREE-QUARTER CHRISTIAN DARROUY POUNCED ON A HIGH-CROSS KICK AND RACED AWAY FOR A TRY. LACAZE CONVERTED.

    AFTER KIERNAN MISSED A STRING OF PENALTIES, C. GIBSON TOOK OVER GOAL-KICKING DUTIES AND LANCED A PENALTY IN THE 51ST MINUTE. FRANCE 8, IRELAND 6. WITH ONLY TEN MINUTES LEFT, GIBSON HAD A CHANCE TO PUT IRELAND AHEAD BUT PUT HIS PENALTY KICK WIDE.

    IN A FLASH FRANCE SWEPT THE BALL FORWARD. CENTRE A. BONIFACE TOSSED THE BALL HIGH OVER TWO IRISH DEFENDERS. DURROUY PLUNGED THROUGH FOR HIS SECOND TRY AND THE LAST SCORE OF THE MATCH...
