Schmidt hails Sexton and Murray displays

Ireland coach Joe Schmidt said half-back pair Conor Murray and Johnny Sexton gave a lesson in how to play in wet conditions as the Irish earned a vital 19-9 Six Nations win over France.

"In conditions like that they are even better for us. It's a day when you need people who can control a game and who can add a bit of variety to the game," Schmidt told BBC Sport.
