6N: Beauxis to start at flyhalf for France against Scotland

12 February 2018

Scotland scrum-half Greig Laidlaw converts six penalties as the hosts come from behind to beat France and secure their first Six Nations win this year at Murrayfield.

England's 2003 World Cup-winning coach, lambasted the 25-year-old for laughing and smiling during the pre-match national anthem, writing in his Mail on Sunday column: "He won't be laughing and smiling when he reviews the way his team played, especially Scotland's number ten (fly-half)". Another indication came when Watson was asked to assess Ireland's last-gasp win in Paris, and to say whether he would settle on Sunday for a victory achieved, like theirs was, without a single try. The winger touched down after just two minutes thanks to a brilliant solo run.

"We've got to approach it [the France match] in the same way we approached the Wales game".

An average opening spell continued for Scotland when they were penalized for not releasing the ball. But Scotland didn't take long to hit back.

The US has given mixed signals about its willingness to talk . "This is our family and this is great". She later gave that folder to Moon, and Moon's office said it was a personal letter from her brother.

Gregor Townsend's side regrouped quickly, however, and responded with a try of their own when Sean Maitland went over in the corner following patient build-up. The flyer chipped over his man and won the race to the ball, the bounce ruining Laidlaw and Thomas had his double.

Bringing in Horne - Alex Dunbar is still unavailable - not only releases Huw Jones to the outside centre role where he is more effective but also, with Laidlaw, a minder on each side for Finn Russell.

Another Machenaud penalty ensured the visitors took a six point lead into the break. The two teams kept trading penalties, with Machenaud and Laidlaw both keeping the scoreboard ticking over.

Both coaches went to their benches in search of a game-changer, both equally desperate for a victory.

BBC One is the place to catch Scotland v France this evening, with coverage set to start at 2.30pm before kick-off at 3pm. Scotland had all of the running and won another penalty in kickable-range in the 70th minute.

"We were just massively frustrated with the quality of our performance last week so for us it's just about us going out there and showing that doesn't represent what we're about as a team".

The challenge now for Barclay and his team-mates will not be any easier as they look to bounce back against the French. "So we're approaching it as we'd normally approach playing France: they're a very good team". It was their undoing and with five minutes left Laidlaw kicked yet another. Scotland will now head to Twickenham energised after a morale-boosting win.
