    Background: Ireland and France battled to a nine-all draw in their Rugby Union International played in Dublin today (Saturday). The game produced only one try and seesawed with first one side then the other gaining the advantage by penalty kicks.

    France took the lead shortly before half time at their third penalty attempt for the half. Villepreux put the ball over from the 40 yard line and near the touchline.

    Tom Kiernan, who was making his 47th international appearance for Ireland did not appear after the interval because of injuries received early in the game. Ireland drew level with a great try by Eddie Grant. France swung away in a three quarter movement when Grant intercepted the pass and sprinted 40 yards to touch down near the posts. The conversion was missed and Ireland paid the penalty two minutes later when Jean Berot put France in the lead again with a magnificent drop goal.

    In the 55th minute Ireland levelled again with a 40 yard penalty conversion. So the match was drawn 9-9.
