France were in ominous form at the Stade de France tonight, beating Scotland by 34 points to 21.
Scotland stayed in the game and there were some very encouraging signs for them, but it never really looked as though they could cause an upset.
Of particular signifcance was the French scrum, which was utterly dominant against a big Scottish pack, and should send a warning to the other teams in the Championship.
Despite being on the losing side, there is plenty to cheer about for the Scottish fans, incluidng scoring three tries in the Stade de France.
Andy Robinson said afterwards, “I’m really pleased with how we went about trying to play, but it’s very frustrating. I’m delighted with the attitude, but we have to be ruthless. We’re here to win Test matches.”
