Dramatic finish Johnny Sexton’s huge drop kick in the 84rd minute wins the game for Ireland

Ireland carried a deserved 9-3 lead into the break thanks to three penalties from Sexton.

Asked how the nature of the win would boost Ireland psychologically, Murray replied: "It's huge; it's going to be a completely different Monday now".

Ireland had dominated, according to most of the statistics. - This was just the third time Ireland have won away in France in the Six Nations (also 2000 & 2014), all three victories coming by just two points.

The entire country rejoiced as he hammered home the drop goal after 41 gruelling phases when the game looked all but lost.

France were really narrow in defence and backed themselves to get into the faces of the Irish attackers quickly and win the gainline battle.

In what can already be described as a remarkable career, Nigel Owens will achieve another milestone tomorrow in Paris when he takes charge of the NatWest 6 Nations clash between France and Ireland.

That was the highlight of a hard debut for the 19-year-old Bordeaux playmaker, who was forced to leave the pitch moments later after a large collision with the imposing frame of Ireland new boy Bundee Aki, which left both players on the deck.

"When (Sexton) struck the drop goal I was just willing it had enough distance to go over", said Ireland coach Joe Schmidt. I don't think we'd have gone a couple more phases.

The French looked out of it until a superb converted try by right winger Teddy Thomas swung it in their favour and made it 13-12 with only eight minutes to go.

"As referees you don't ref week in week out in Test matches like you do as a player so it takes a lot longer for referees to arrive at that milestone - if it comes along it would be absolutely special, there is no doubt about that".

Then came the moment, in the 83rd minute.

"There are four teams, potentially France too, who could all beat each other, so it's wide open", the flanker, among several experienced Wales internationals ruled out today with injury, told the BBC.

Jalibert grimaced as he limped off and was surprisingly taken down the tunnel for a head injury assessment after appearing to hurt his knee when he brought down Six Nations debutant Aki.

With their opponents under the guidance of a new head coach - Jacques Brunel - Ireland were expected to prevail on their latest trip to Paris.

Jalibert left the pitch to be replaced by Belleau on the half hour after hurting his knee.

Dupont's departure five minutes from the end allowed Maxime Machenaud, the starting scrum half, to return to the field, which would not have been possible had it not been for the HIA.

France was still in contention after Sexton missed his first penalty of the night and Thomas scored the only try of an otherwise locked game.
