Scotland made it back-to-back wins in the Six Nations as they ended France’s Grand Slam dreams with an impressive 28-17 victory at Murrayfield, a result which lifts them to third in the standings.
The French had won their first three games, but a first-half red card for Mohamed Haouas allowed Scotland to seize control and win the game.
RUCK MAN OF THE MATCH: Jamie Ritchie (Scotland)
Antoine Dupont (France): Player of the championship, no question. Carried an underperforming Les Bleus today.
