Huge blow for Ireland as Johnny Sexton is ruled out for Ireland for the game against France in Paris. The Leinster and Irish out-half has been ruled out with a hamstring injury. Joey Carbery comes into the starting 15 and Connacht’s Jack Carty comes onto the bench. Time for Joey Carbery to step up, even though the Munster out-half was out for a while with injury also.

This gives France a massive advantage as there’s no doubt about it, the St. Mary’s club man is a world class out-half and vital to Ireland.
