    Looking forward to this.

    Bonus point and at least a 21 point margin of victory needed for France to grab the title - I'm just not seeing it. Scotland looking to finish on a high too.

    Scotland having Hastings on the bench could potentially be a curse for the French if Russell comes off early, will make it a lot harder for them compared to a vintage Russell flop in the dying minutes.

    Hastings warming up before entering the field......

    Both teams want to win, Scotland probably don't care how, France by a big margin, should be a great contest.

    I reckon the French will get the 21 point margin.

    i hope so too have a bet on them

    I think 21 points is a big ask. I reckon France will win by between 15 and 20 points.

    France can easily run up a score but can they play for 80 minutes? A cheap try or two for Scotland could kill them.

    France. Ntamack to channel his DC Lions 2001 and MOTM.

    If it was 2005, he'd be a whole lot better!

    The older Rafa Ibanez gets, the more he reminds me of Richard Burton.

    They played 80 last week. The short turnaround could impact that though.

    France to win by between 10-15 points I’d say.

    Scottish anthem is nothing without a crowd belting it out in Murrayfield/Hamden Park.


  • Registered Users Posts: 24,736 ✭✭✭✭molloyjh


    The weather could throw a real spanner in the works.

    Nice of them to record one of those crowds shouting “bastards” so all the same.

    Someone has told the French that they need tries, right?

    They also need points. Build a lead against the Scots and then the tries will come

    Mental decision

    Virgin media 2

    In that weather, they may not get so many opportunities.

    Agree, need to get a lead and then run riot

    The added element of rain coming down on the pitch tonight may change things to maybe make it a level playing field among both teams. I think there was rain involved with the last 2020 6N game between France & Ireland with France winning that game because they were the stronger team on the night. I think France will still win this game against Scotland. They are doing their job well with that great scrum near the posts & getting the 3 points. I think it will be a great result for the French if they buckle down getting the points for winning the championship.

    Virgin media 2

    And BBC 1.


  • Registered Users Posts: 1,899 ✭✭✭randomname2005


    Disappointed in the French lineout, though they would have done a job like we did


  • Registered Users Posts: 17,300 ✭✭✭✭razorblunt


    Fickou already up for it.
    Thought Alldritt legitmately had hands on ball.
