O'Mahony returns against France in Six Nations

DUBLIN (AP) -- Ireland has made just one change to its starting lineup to take on France on Saturday in their Six Nations title-decider after Peter O'Mahony recovered from a hamstring injury.

O'Mahony had been sidelined from the 46-7 thrashing of Italy in Dublin last weekend. He returns at blindside flanker in place of Iain Henderson, who is relegated to the bench.

Ian Madigan is expected to make his first appearance of the season in the tournament, providing cover from the bench for flyhalf Johnny Sexton.

The match will also mark Brian O'Driscoll's 141st and final test appearance. O'Driscoll will extend his Six Nations appearance record to 65 in his final international before his summer retirement.
