Former Ireland flanker Stephen Ferris says Ireland's fly-half selection will be difficult.

Ulster's Paddy Jackson has been in the jersey for the first two games of the Six Nations, while Johnny Sexton's been injured.

It appears the Leinster fly-half could be fit for Saturday's game with France.

Speaking to Q Radio Sport, Ferris says a lot depends on the preparations over the next few days.


The former blindside flankers says France will be a tough opposition.

It was a great day for CJ Stander against Italy, as he scored a hat-trick.

Ferris says he'll need to have a similar performance against France.

What does Ferris think of speculation Rory Best might not play on Saturday after his replacement did well last week?

He was speaking at MJM Newry, during a special week-long trophy tour across Ireland organised by Ulster Bank.
