  • 9 New Caps In Ireland U20 Team For 6 Nations Opener.

Six Nations Rugby Limited has confirmed that it is reviewing "a number of incidents" from Ireland's last-gasp win over France in Paris after suggestions that the French tried to manipulate the Head Injury Assessment protocol.

"I can not anticipate what the doctors are going to say but I believe it might be serious for them", said Jacques Brunel, France's new coach.

Jalibert, 19, has enjoyed a meteoric rise since Brunel handed him his club bow earlier this season, and will partner Maxime Machenaud at half-back at the Stade de France.

France stars Matthieu Jalibert and Antoine Dupont suffered knee injuries, but were also sent for head injury assessments (HIAs) in Saturday's clash.

Teenager Matthieu Jalibert will start at flyhalf for France in their Six Nations opener against Ireland on Saturday.

"When he struck the drop goal I was just willing it to have enough distance to get over".

France should have been toast but Sexton had missed a crucial penalty, when his team were 12-6 ahead, and Ireland had wasted each trip into the opposition 22 [getting turned over three times].

"I think about a third of each team are the same as the starting 15, even in two years with those sort of changes, they do paint a very different picture and certainly the picture is very hard to see in any particular clarity", he said.

NEW NUCLEAR POLICY: China accusses United States of 'Cold War' mentality

"When you know it's a serious knee injury, you're going to grimace".

Former Ireland skipper Brian O'Driscoll was among those who questioned the fairness of the decisions.

"I thought it (the drop goal) was a little short".

Schmidt explained: "We felt he went really well against Montpellier and we are looking forward to seeing what he will deliver".

Like Jalibert, Castres full-back Geoffrey Palis will make his Test debut in Brunel's first match in charge of Les Bleus. "All our (tournament) goals would have crumbled today if we had lost".

Sexton had spent much of the second half protesting about France's supposed "HIA" injuries, with Nigel Owens doing his best to placate the Irish players when they cried foul play following a knee-to-knee challenge.

However, lack of discipline continued to cost Brunel's side as yet another infraction gave Sexton the chance to restore Ireland's six-point advantage going into the break - one he grasped with both hands.
