Sarkozy happier than me - Saint-Andre

France coach Philippe Saint-Andre says French President Nicolas Sarkozy, who visited the players in the dressing room after the game, was happier with the team's performance than he was, after his side drew 17-17 against Ireland in the Six Nations in Paris.

Two Tommy Bowe tries gave Ireland a 17-6 lead at half time - but France gained the upper hand after the break and a Wesley Fofana try helped them to make up their 11-point deficit.

Speaking after the match, Saint-Andre says he was "not happy at all" with France's slow start - but praises the commitment and hard work shown in the second half.
