Ireland's hopes of a Six Nations Grand Slam could rest on the extent of star fly-half Jonathan Sexton's hamstring injury which will be assessed imminently, said coach Joe Schmidt. The 29-year-old Racing-Metro playmaker -- who only returned to action again a fortnight ago after months out because of concussion -- had to go off after his conversion gave Ireland a 19-3 lead in the second-half of their game against England on Sunday. The Irish ran out 19-9 winners to equal the national side's record of 10 successive victories and keep alive hopes of only a third ever Grand Slam, and of becoming only the second Ireland side to retain the trophy. "Johnny felt a twinge in his hamstring and thankfully he managed to convert the try (by Robbie Henshaw)," said Schmidt. More »Schmidt waits on Sexton hamstring assessment

France coach Philippe Saint-Andre has hit out at his players for not living up to their hype, following a fourth successive defeat to Wales. France's Six Nations hopes went up in smoke on Saturday as they were beaten in the competition for the second time, going down 20-13 at home to Wales. With Ireland still unbeaten, it means France, who face away games at Italy and England to see out the tournament, have next to no chance of coming out on top and will likely finish in the bottom half for the fourth year running under Saint-Andre. The coach has come in for some severe criticism from the French press as his record makes poor viewing -- he has failed to beat Wales, Ireland, New Zealand or South Africa during his tenure and has only presided over one win against England.
