Scotland v France today, the 3rd match of the Six Nations Cup Tournament that began yesterday.

Scotland played a great game but didn't stand a chance against the more impressive France team whom Scottish coach described as one of the best scrummers in the world. Final score: France 18, Scotland 9.

This from Imanol Hari [French captain]: "We're very happy to win today. The Scotland team has a big heart, and it's always a tough match to come here. We knew we had to have a big performance from the forwards, and we won the match in the scrum and the fight."

FULL-TIME: Scotland 9-18 France More comprehensive than the scoreline suggests, that win - France hugely impressive, and as many through, next weekend's clash in Paris against Ireland is looking like the decisive match in the championship. Scotland very disappointing - too many errors, inability to capitalise on the few breaks they had.
Our victory chant: On a gagné! On a gagné!
