  • FULL-TIME: FRANCE 20-22 IRELAND

  • They've done it! The fairytale finish for O'Driscoll is realised! What a win for Ireland! And it was a choke tackle, fittingly, the trademark of this team, that wins the day. Enthralling game of rugby from the world's greatest tournament. Thanks for joining us, we can't wait til next year!

    80
  • Taken against the head! Huge defence needed for Ireland now. A drop goal will do it...

    80
  • The right call is made. It's clearly forward. One minute for Ireland to hold out. First up, a scrum on their own 22.

    79
  • Oh my! Chouly is in at the corner! The home fans are going beserk! But the pass looked well forward and Walsh is going upstairs amid a cacophony of boos and whistles.

    79
  • Ireland patiently going through the phases on the French 22 as we approach the final two minutes. But they concede a penalty, France on the attack now!

    78
  • Big, big penalty for Ireland as France look to attack. Madigan punts safely down to the 10m line.

    76
  • A bit of nervy aerial ping-pong now as both sides jockey for position and possession.

    73
  • Oh dear, oh dear. He's missed. Ireland hugely off the hook.

    70
  • Penalty France from the scrum! Big kick for Doussain now who can give his side the lead!

    70
  • France on the attack once again as a penalty brings them down towards the 22. Remember the title is hanging in the balance here in Paris.

    68
  • CONVERSION, FRANCE, MACHENAUD! 20-22 We're back to a two-point game. This could go either way.

    65
  • TRY, FRANCE, SZARZEWSKI! 18-22 There was no yellow for Healy, but France continued to hammer the visitors' defence. Steve Walsh is convinced the hooker has grounded the ball on the base of the post, though replays suggest Szarzewski knocked it on.

    63
  • There's trouble here for Cian Healy who flew over the top of a ruck recklessly and off his feet right on the Irish line. Clattered Picamoles who looks out of it for the moment.

    62
  • France pounding the Irish line...

    61
  • Ireland penalised for an early tackle on Fickou as France look to counter-attack again. Looking dangerous from broken field as you'd expect.

    59
  • Great cover tackle from Rory Best there as Medard threatened to break clear. France wind up with a 22 drop out.

    56
  • PENALTY, IRELAND, SEXTON! 13-22 Crucial, crucial kick from Sexton, bouncing back from the two earlier misses.

    53
  • Sexton boots down to the 22 and gives Ireland an attacking lineout. Ireland looking to turn the screw.

    51
  • CONVERSION, IRELAND, SEXTON! 13-19
