Ireland are on course to win the Five Nations tournament in Paris after beating the hosts on Saturday.

The Irish took the lead on the stroke of half-time thanks to a John Jermyn penalty corner.

John Jackson doubled Ireland's advantage on 50 minutes with a superb reverse stick shot.

Ireland stand top of the standings and can only be denied the trophy if Argentina defeat Korea by eight goals or more on Sunday.
