French Victory!

Another good reading for your Sunday afternoon is the great French 26-19 victory in the Six Nations rugby tournament in Dublin yesterday. With this victory, France shattered Ireland's dream of a first grand slam in 57 years. Now only Wales can make the grand slam.
Christophe Dominici scored two tries, and Benoit Baby also crossed the Irish line as the French cruised into an 18-9 halftime lead.
"The better team won," Eddie O'Sullivan, the Ireland coach, said. "France deserved it. People wondered whether they would turn up and they certainly did. That is one hell of a French team. If they're rebuilding we're all in trouble. I thought at one stage we had them where we wanted them but we can't beat ourselves up about this defeat, as disappointing as it was".
