  • Ireland 13-13 France

  • France kick through, the ball goes dead... it's a draw! Nobody's preferred result, but it's the one we've got. Ireland will be frustrated - they failed to score any points in the second half and were the dominant side throughout. Credit to France for fighting back, but this was a savage encounter with a lot of walking wounded. France continue to search for that first win in this year's tournament.

    80
  • Large stoppage of play as Eoin Reddan is stretchered off with a nasty leg injury. France have a penalty with four seconds left in their own half.

    80
  • Ireland attacking but the pressure is well and firmly on. Physio on for Eoin Reddan who looks in a bad way. France turn it over!

    78
  • Drama all round! Brian O'Driscoll is back on - Keith Earls chases a kick through and is given a significant nudge by Vincent Debaty going for the score. Nothing given, France drop out.

    76
  • TRY, FRANCE, PICAMOLES! 13-13 France with all the pressure as Ireland cling on. Tap and go from Picamoles and France are over! Try to the visitors and it's all level! Or is it? Michalak to convert... he has!

  • Luke Marshall limps off for Ireland as Brian O'Driscoll wobbles. Desperate to stay on but the Irish legend departs to huge applause and a few tears. Ian Madigan on for his debut.

    72
  • French maul in the Irish 22 - Claassen with the carry. Bastareaud pounds the midfield and France are at their best now. Ireland cling on to win the penalty.

    70
  • Knocked on by Ireland, scrum to France with time running out. In fairness, Ireland should really by up by more.

    68
  • Penalty to France after Ireland slow it down. Attack from the lineout - but a penalty to Ireland, holding on the charge after good work from Brian O'Driscoll. Possibly his last game at Lansdowne Road today.

    65
  • France clear their lines and have scrum inside their own half. Michalak has a juggle but survives under pressure.

    64
  • Mid-air collision between Kearney and a Frenchman hands the advantage to Ireland. O'Brien batters Huget out the way, the full-back lying in a crumpled heap. Kicked forward into the corner by Ireland.

    60
  • Careless penalty conceded by Ireland and Parra lines up another shot at goal. It's wide to the left, Ireland maintain their seven point lead.

    57
  • Loose box kick from Parra is snatched up by Ireland. Scrappy passage of play now as both teams knock on, France coming out on top with the scrum on halfway.

    55
  • PENALTY, FRANCE, PARRA! 13-6 Penalty to France, Mike Ross popping up at the scrum. Morgan Parra now on kicking duties and his excellent boot sends it over.

    54
  • Huget with another excellent catch under the high ball. France knock forward, Ireland going backwards and will take the scrum.

    52
  • Free kick to Ireland from the scrum - Murray taps and goes and Ireland are hungry for a second try. Racking up the phases, Jackson feigns a drop goal and passes onto Kearney, who does go for a drop goal but makes a mess of it.

    49
  • Ireland drive with Sean O'Brien at the base. Loose pass and France will have the scrum.

    47
  • Jackson's effort falls just short. Kearney takes the dropout and Ireland attack. Marshall's grubber is ineffective and France clear. Ireland come again through Kearney's kick, rolling into touch in the French 22.

    45
  • Put-in reversed after France fail to use the ball at the back of the scrum - Ireland win the penalty, Mike Ross getting on top of Thomas Domingo. Jackson going for goal.
