Les Bleus are the firm favourites to finally end their 12-year wait for championship glory this year after following up a straightforward opening win over Italy with a bruising home defeat of chief title rivals Ireland.

However, France have tended to struggle against the Scots in recent years, needing a bonus point and a winning margin of 21 points in last year’s final match to win the tournament, only to lose to Gregor Townsend’s side in Paris for the first time since 1999 courtesy of Duhan van der Merwe’s last-gasp try.

In 2020, their Grand Slam dreams came crashing down in Edinburgh after prop Mohamed Haouas’s red card for punching Jamie Ritchie, with England going on to claim the title.

France will be confident of avoiding such a disaster this time around, though Scotland did once again topple the English at Murrayfield on opening weekend before being bested in disappointing fashion by injury-plagued Wales in Cardiff last time out courtesy of Dan Biggar’s late drop goal.

Scotland vs France team news

Scotland will hand a first senior international start to Rory Darge today, with the Glasgow flanker having made his debut off the bench against Wales.

Magnus Bradbury also comes into the back row to replace the injured Matt Fagerson, with Sam Skinner moving to the second row to cover for the absent Jonny Gray, who will miss the rest of the tournament due to injury.

Zander Fagerson is also preferred to WP Nel at tight-head prop. Hamish Watson will no longer play due to a positive test for Covid-19 announced on Friday evening, with Nick Haining coming in and Andy Christie potentially set to earn a debut now from the bench.

Scotland – whose backline is unchanged – are also without the likes of Scott Cummings, Cameron Redpath and Rory Sutherland, though Mark Bennett makes the matchday squad for the first time since 2018.

It’s mixed news for France, with flying Toulon wing Gabin Villière – who notched a stylish hat-trick against Italy on opening weekend – sidelined due to a sinus fracture suffered against Ireland and Mathieu Jalibert nursing a thigh complaint.
