Preview: France v Scotland

Scotland Women head to Stade de la Rabine, Vannes to take on France in their third 2023 TikTok Women's Six Nations match on Sunday (kick off 3.15pm BST) - live on BBC Scotland.

What they said

Head Coach Bryan Easson said: “It’s brilliant to see Lisa get her 50th cap this Sunday as she’s been a stalwart for Scotland Women for a long time now.

“It’s also fantastic to welcome back Jade to the squad. She’s worked really hard on her rehab programme and brings a wealth of experience into the pack

“Following the first two rounds, we’ve seen two or three things that we need to fix, including continuing working on our speed of play and also being more clinical inside the gold zone area.

“It’s always a tough challenge going to France but it is also an exciting opportunity which everyone is relishing, especially as we are expecting a huge crowd and a great atmosphere on Sunday.”
