Philippe Saint-Andre admits that he would take any win against Ireland, with style currently not important for his side.

France coach Philippe Saint-Andre has admitted that his side must learn how to win in any way possible in order to get out of their appalling run of form.

He said that he would happily "take a 3-0 victory" on Saturday against Ireland to register a win for his side, who are currently bottom of the Six Nations table.

"The French team's role is to win and win well but in our situation, we'd take a 3-0 victory," Saint-Andre said.

"You've got to make your own luck. We didn't face up to the situation in the first three matches. We've got to score when we're playing well, concede fewer points when we're not and be better defensively.

"Against England, when we scored, we weren't aggressive enough in the first line of defence. We missed a lot of first tackles. We've worked on that to be tighter against Ireland. We've got to learn to win matches again."

Ireland and France have just one win between them in six matches in this season's Six Nations.
