On the way to the grand slam? The French rugby team, leading the Six Nations Tournament after three wins in three games, face Scotland at 4 p.m. Sunday 8 March at Murrayfield Stadium. A shock that you can see and comment on from 4 p.m. on our website franceinfo.fr.
The tri-color XV. Winger Damian Penaud and pillar Jefferson Poirot will experience their first tenures in this tournament. Penaud should take the place of Teddy Thomas, titular during the first three days, but not retained because of his defensive deficiencies and a certain offensive ineffectiveness. Jefferson Poirot replaces Cyril Baille, absent for several weeks for a dislocation of the right shoulder. For the rest, Fabien Galthié and his staff keep the same winning team, with a 100% Toulouse hinge, Antoine Dupont-Romain Ntamack.
The XV of the Thistle. For To face France, Scottish coach Gregor Townsend makes three changes: hooker Fraser Brown will honor his fiftieth selection, along with second line Grant Gilchrist and third line Nick Haining, to replace Stuart McInally, Ben Toolis and Magnus Bradbury respectively. Winners in Italy, after losing to Wales and England, the Scots have only a small chance of winning the Tournament, but they dream of being the first to bring down the Blues.
The consequences of coronavirus. The Six Nations Tournament is also affected by Covid-19 and matches have been postponed: Ireland-Italy counting for the fourth day, and Italy-England counting for the fifth day, Saturday March 14th.
