In the universe of decisions going the right or wrong way on the day - France are even now. Scotland will feel very unlucky.

But to be fair, Scotland let the game go again. Allowed the French back in. That 10 minutes of kicking tennis was a waste of valuable time that should have been used in putting another score on France who didn’t look dangerous at all today. Galthie lives to fight another day.

Scotland were absolutely, 100% definitively robbed there. I’m not the least bit of a Scotland supporter, couldn’t be further from it (I support England), but my goodness, Scotland was robbed plain as day. That ball was down and I’d call those angles as conclusive as you could get.

Scotland by 5 and an enormously gripping week in the media next week.

I think we’ll see tit-for-tat tries being scored. Scotland to sneak the victory. Finn Russel looked very dangerous half 1 last week. French forwards looked heavy on the feet. Scotland to run.

Who Will Win?

On Saturday 10th February, Scotland host France at Murrayfield in the Six Nations.

France will understandably enter this clash as the favourites. Even without captain Antoine Dupont, Les Bleus are a team to fear. Plus, after an early exit at a home Rugby World Cup, they enter this tournament with a point to prove.

That said, Scotland cannot be discounted from causing an upset here. Although they were eliminated from the Rugby World Cup at the pool stage, they still secured two wins from their four matches and put in two solid performances against South Africa and Ireland.

Think you know who will triumph in this upcoming Scotland vs France match? Vote in our poll.

Head-to-Head

In the last five meetings between the two sides, Scotland have won two matches while France have won three. Over this time, Scotland have averaged 23 points per match and France have averaged 28 points per match. As a result, there’s every chance that this encounter could be close!

The last five meetings have also shown us that these matches can be back-and-forth affairs. After all, the team that has scored the first try in the last five Scotland vs France matches has only won 40% of the time. Additionally, Scotland may have the edge as the home side. This is because the home team has won 60% of the last five fixtures between the two teams.

Team Form

France enter this game in good form. Although they lost a tight Rugby World Cup quarter-final against eventual winners South Africa (29-28), they won all four of their other matches during the competition, including the opening game against New Zealand.

Meanwhile, Scotland have also been in reasonable form and have won three of their last five matches. This includes an 84-0 victory over Romania and a 45-17 victory over Tonga.

Below our team form guide, you can see in-depth stats about how the two sides have performed in their last five games, including stats about the number of tries they’ve scored, their overall points difference and the number of times they’ve scored the first try. We’ve also detailed how often each team has scored the first points in a game and how often they’ve won the race to 10 points.

Player Head-to-Head

One costly penalty or individual moment of brilliance can decide a huge Six Nations encounter like Scotland vs France.

With this in mind, here’s how Ben Healy and Thomas Ramos have performed in recent Scotland vs France clashes. Could either of these stars decide the game for their country?
