- From the section Northern Ireland
Ireland captain Rory Best says the wet conditions in Dublin meant his team had to "roll up our sleeves" to earn a vital 19-9 Six Nations win over a physical France side.
"The rain came in and we had to make sure we exerted physical pressure because we knew if we stood off this French team, they would be a dangerous outfit," Best told BBC Sport.
