Ireland are second-favourites for the title and hold the honour of being the only side to have beaten Eddie Jones’ England since he took over more than two years ago.

But their fixture list is anything but an easy one. Their tournament is top-and-tailed by trips to Paris and London, with a potential decider against England on Super Saturday.

But none of that will matter at the Stade de France this Saturday when France look to start a new era under Jacques Brunel with 19-year-old Matthieu Jalibert making his debut at fly-half.

New France coach Jacques Brunel named teenager Matthieu Jalibert at flyhalf for his team’s Six Nations opening game against Ireland on Saturday.

The 19-year-old Jalibert, who will make his international debut at the Stade de France three months after starting his first Top 14 match with Bordeaux-Begles, has been paired with the in-form Maxime Machenaud after Morgan Parra was ruled out injured.

“This year is going really fast, everything is happening to me at lightning speed,” said Jalibert.

Another uncapped player, fullback Geoffrey Palis, will also start as Brunel will be looking to restore France’s confidence for his first game in charge.

Brunel took over from Guy Noves after a dismal series of international tests last November.
