France - Ireland second attempt

This time, the weather in Paris didn't interfere with Six Nations second round game.  The first half belonged to the Irish team. After successful interception in 13 minute, they were leading 0:7. Before half-time Irish added another converted try and penalty. Morgan Parra replied with two penalties. After 40 minutes of the game at Stade de France it looked like the visitors were about to surprise us. Ireland was wining 6:17.
The second half was more fortunate for France. They played more efficiently and started to catch up. Ireland failed to add more points to their scoreboard. The game finished with a 17:17 draw.

Situation in the table has changed. Currently, the only contender to the Grand Slam is Wales, which already have Triple Crown trophy under their belt. The tournament has still a lot to offer. With two more rounds to be played, there are four teams - Wales, France, England and Ireland -  and every one of them, at least in theory, has a chance to become a champion.
