Preview: Scotland v France

Scotland host France at Scottish Gas Murrayfield tomorrow (kick off 3.15pm) in the second game of The Famous Grouse Nations Series - live on Prime Video.

What they said

Head Coach Gregor Townsend said: “It’s one of the best week’s of preparation we could get, playing against the number three team in the world.

“Last weekend the crowd were great before the game, during the game and after, and our players responded really well from that. That backing is really special to us.

“To now play France another week on with another group of players, it’ll be a great experience.”

The team

The stats

  • Scotland have won five of their last seven Test matches (L2) including each of their last two by margins of exactly 12 points – two of Scotland’s last four wins have come despite trailing their opponents at half-time on the day.
  • Scotland (91.7%) and France (89.0%) had the two highest tackle success rates in this year’s Six Nations – 81.3% of Scotland’s missed tackles saw the opposing player tackled before breaking the line or scoring a try, the highest such rate of any team in this year’s Championship.
  • Darcy Graham has scored six tries in his last three Test matches for Scotland – since the start of the 2022 Autumn Nations series, he has averaged a try every 64 minutes in Test rugby.
