- From the section Irish Rugby
Ireland coach Joe Schmidt explains the selection of fit-again fly-half Johnny Sexton ahead of Paddy Jackson for the Six Nations game against France at the Aviva Stadium on Saturday.
Sexton has recovered from a calf problem which ruled him out of the opening games of the tournament, a defeat by Scotland at Murrayfield, and a win over Italy in Rome.
BBC Sport NI's Nial Foster also got the thoughts of winger Andrew Trimble, who is named among the replacements for the Dublin encounter.
