Paul O’Connell has hailed Ireland’s magnificent win in Paris, though did say the end was more nervy than he would have liked.

The Munster man captained Ireland to a two-point victory over a battling French side as Ireland landed the championship in Brian O’Driscoll’s final game and O’Connell says they deserved the win.

“We’ve had our fair share of bad luck with the French so I think we deserved that,” he said afterwards.

“I have been coming here since I was 22 and I had never won in France, but I thought we were excellent.”

The perfectionist added that he would have preferred not to have had to hang on like they did in the final minutes, with a forward pass enabling Ireland to hold out for victory and said it was a tribute to the strength of the squad.

“We have always had an excellent squad, but we have really shown that this season.”
