Sixth national tournament: the XV. Beat by France by Scotland (27-23)

The basics The Blues had to beat the Scots with 4 tries and a difference of 21 points. Failure: You even lost at home between 27-23.

11 years without a trophy, 11 years without a French victory in the 6-nation tournament. Series still in progress. The French were defeated at the Stade de France of Scotland (27-23) that Friday March 26th. You cracked at the end of the game.

At the beginning of the meeting, the somewhat feverish French were led 10: 6 after 28 minutes, especially after an attempt by Duhan Van der Merwe on the 14th minute. Thanks to the kicks of Romain Ntamack (8th, 28th), the French managed to blow up the Scottish defensive lock in the 36th: Damian Penaud, who was found on the wing by Antoine Dupont, returns in the race from Brice Dulin, who himself flattens out at the end. 11-10 for the blues, then 13-10 thanks to Ntamack. Result in the break.

At the beginning of the French second half, Damian Penaud, who served on the wing, kicks over and flattens in goal. 18 to 10.

The sequel is a panting crossover on the scoreboard: the Scots find the opening by Cherry in the 61st (they lead 20-18) before Swan Rebbadj replies (first attempt for his first term) and after a selection flattens the gate and leaves Sequence (23-20 and 3 attempts for the blues).

In the last 10 minutes, unruly French have conceded too many mistakes and even conceded one last attempt by Duhan Van der Merwe.
