Much is expected of 20-year-old full-back Jordan Larmour and 21-year-old winger Jacob Stockdale, who will make their Six Nations debuts today against France at the Stade de France.

Machenaud reduced the arrears five minutes before the interval with a penalty France won at the breakdown, only for Sexton to restore the six-point lead after a Sebastien Vahaamahina foul on Murray in the scrum.

Six Nations rugby officials plan to investigate the use of head injury assessment protocols to see if France benefited during their tournament-opening loss to Ireland.

Another uncapped player, fullback Geoffrey Palis, will also start as Brunel will look to restore France's confidence for his first game in charge. "It was nothing short of a disgrace!", tweeted former Ireland centre Brian O'Driscoll.

It continues a trend in France over the previous year in which a number of talented young half-backs have been thrust onto the worldwide arena.

Yes, a teenager, a 19-year-old, will start an global match in one of the most competitive rugby competitions in the world against one of the tournament favourites.

Ireland had lost control of the game and - after the HIA kerfuffle - France should have sewn it up with a penalty after 77 minutes.

"Firstly it's because he's been in very good form for several weeks, so it's about his performances", said Brunel, who revealed Machenaud will be the team's kicker. Twenty minutes after giving Ireland the lead, Sexton stepped up again to put yet more daylight between the two sides after Yacouba Camara was penalised.

Far Cry 5 Season Pass Revealed
If there is something that the Far Cry series has always succeeded in, it's building elaborate and engaging worlds to explore. On Xbox One and PS4, it's Far Cry 3: Classic Edition , a re-release that includes the game's "single-player content".

"I can not anticipate what the doctors are going to say but I believe it might be serious for them", said Jacques Brunel, France's new coach.

Asked if Ryan is ready for the expected step up in intensity in Paris, Schmidt replied: "Well one of the reasons he's in the team is so we can find out".

"I think this is a big issue and lots of players are in agreement that that's unacceptable because it's us this weekend, Wales weren't so lucky previous year".

"We want to be able to keep building in that position (of second row), it's a position we probably don't have huge depth in".

Having already achieved everything in the game that is possible for modern days refs - ie: European Cup finals, World Cup finals etc - Owens is looking forward to another first in his career, however.

He said: "They are really excited about getting that opportunity".

"I'd hope that it's not".

"I think he'll give us security, he's well built and has a big left boot which can be useful to us".
