Ireland won the 2014 Six Nations after holding on to beat France 22-20 in a tense game in Paris on Saturday.

Johnny Sexton ran in two tries for the Irish, while Andrew Trimble got another to make it a memorable end to Brian O'Driscoll’s international career.

Ireland survived a late French onslaught, including a disallowed try in the 79th minute, to claim their first away win over France for 14 years.

It meant that Ireland finished level on points with England, who beat Italy 52-11 earlier in the day, but took the Six Nations crown thanks to a superior points difference.
