    Live on BBC1 and VM1.

    France: 15-Ramos, 14-Penaud, 13-Bastareaud, 12-Fickou, 11-Huget, 10-Ntamack, 9-Dupont; 1-Poirot, 2-Guirado (captain), 3-Bamba, 4-Vahaamahina, 5-Lambey, 6-Lauret, 7-Iturria, 8-Picamoles.

    Replacements: 16-Chat, 17-Falgoux, 18-Aldegheri, 19-Willemse, 20-Alldritt, 21-Serin, 22-Belleau, 23-Medard

    Scotland: 15-Kinghorn, 14-Seymour, 13-Grigg, 12-Johnson, 11-Maitland, 10-Horne, 9-Laidlaw (captain); 1-Dell, 2-McInally, 3-Berghan, 4-Gilchrist, 5-Gray, 6-Bradbury, 7-Ritchie 8-Strauss.

    Replacements: 16-Brown, 17-Allan, 18-Fagerson, 19-Toolis, 20-Graham, 21-Price, 22-Hastings, 23-Graham.

    France have too much quality on field to drop this. However every France team of late have had too much quality on field and have dropped it. Scotland are great at the short game but so too are France so the penalty count may be be high. I'd expect this one to be depending on the kicker on this regard and I've a wee bit more faith in Scottish kicking than French kicking.

    I'm guessing Scotland to edge this, around the region of a 21-17 win.

    Two quick penalties against France

    They may have the players but they need the structure and discipline

    I'm not entirely sure about that, might have been a knock on but surely you have to be 100% sure to overturn the on field decision?

    What's with the thread title? Italy aren't playing a d Scotland beat them.

    Wow. Just wow

    Furlongesque from Bastareaud


  • Registered Users Posts: 17,045 ✭✭✭✭ vienne86


    Some glimpses of good French play......they should be a couple of tries ahead though - have to make those chances count.


  • Moderators, Arts Moderators Posts: 33,065 Mod ✭✭✭✭ pickarooney


    100% Toulouse


  • Registered Users Posts: 17,045 ✭✭✭✭ vienne86


    That was a great try - great to watch France when they do that!

    Freddie M with hair plugs?

    What a great tackle from Guirado!
    Impressive how Horne able to get over that


  • Registered Users Posts: 17,045 ✭✭✭✭ vienne86


    Lord above.....that was poor from Laidlaw.


  • Registered Users Posts: 3,525 kilns


    France have some great inviduals but collectively are a mess. I wonder how they would perform with Schmidt coaching them

    TMO calls a HIA for Guirado, but ignores the forearm to the head that caused the HIA.


  • Registered Users Posts: 17,045 ✭✭✭✭ vienne86


    Ah that was classy.


  • Registered Users Posts: 1,199 ✭✭✭ MaybeMaybe


    I don't understand the French attitude to head knocks, what is their problem ffs

    That's the call of the sideline doctor surely? why would the TMO say a player needed to be checked?

    You are right of course. Being stupid and forgot that the ref is hooked up to the sideline as well as TMO.

    That French try is nailed on try of the tournament - special.


  • Registered Users Posts: 12,338 ✭✭✭✭ Losty Dublin


    There's a lot of promise from both teams here, but it's as if they clearly don't want to do anything else. France are impressing me a little more but when Scotland ran at this they were flimsy looking.

    Sublime!
