For the weekend that’s in it.

Sunday, 4th of March, 2012.

A drizzle dampened Paris.

This, the rescheduled fixture from February that was frozen off.

The game described as a “classic” by a big corporate sponsor on Youtube (above) some years later, was anything but, despite the best efforts of Tommy Bowe (top).

A despondent Gerry Thornley in the irish Times, lamented:

Thus, no less than the French and perhaps even slightly more so, Ireland were left rueing a first draw with Les Bleus since the championship winning year of 1985 and first in Paris since 1950, and their first of any kind since the 20-20 draw with Australia in Croke Park in November 2009….


This is the one that definitely got away (Irish Times)
