France captain Gregory Alldritt doubts Ireland clash will be Six Nations decider

France captain Gregory Alldritt has said that his side’s Six Nations opener with Ireland this Friday is “too early” to be considered a tournament decider.

Last year’s Grand Slam winners Ireland kick off their title defence in the Stade Velodrome in Marseille, facing a French side captained by Alldritt in Antoine Dupont’s absence.

When asked if the clash will decide the title, the back-rower said: “The beauty of this competition is that every weekend is a tough weekend, so it will be a bit too early to say that.”

France and Ireland kick off the Six Nations on Friday night at 8pm.
