  • \f0\fs26 \cf2 \cb3 France v Scotland\ With Wales having already clinched the Champonship

  • earlier in the day, there was a touch of anti climax about this game at Stade de France,

  • but important for both sides never-the-less.\ The French needing a big win to avoid their

  • first wooden spoon in 14 years.\ And Scotland seeking their first ever RBS

  • 6 nations win in Paris.Ironically, their last win in the Championship there, was in the

  • five nations 1999, when France were wooden spoonists..\

  • In difficult wet and windy conditions, it was the visitors who took the lead after 8

  • minutes. Louis Picamole getting caught offside, - referee Nigel Owens awarded a penalty - and

  • Greg Laidlaw was on target with his kick. The Edinburgh scrum half has kicked superbly

  • during the championship, and he gave the Scots a three point lead early on.\

  • France looked nervous and the officials consulted before penalising Yoannn Maestri for taking

  • out the jumper at the line-out, it gave Laidlaw a chance to put another three points on the

  • board. And he was succesful with the boot to make it 6-0 for the visitors inside the

  • opening quarter hour.\ After a period of stout Scotland defending

  • which held the French at bay..... the closest they came to a first half try, was when Scottish

  • substitute Max Evans, on for the injured, Sean Maitland; broke the line and chipped

  • ahead and for a moment looked like he might be through, but Maxime Medard was happy to

  • usher the ball out of play and the danger was averted..\

  • As the half time whistle blew, the home side were subjected to a chorus of boos from the

  • disenchanted French supporters, music to the ears of the Scots who'd travelled to Paris.\

  • Whatever St Andre said at half time it had the desired result France came out with more

  • spirit, and cut and thrust . In the case of Freddy Michalak a little too much fighting

  • spirit as he and Ali Hogg came head to head ,but they were only warned by the referee

  • for their misbehaviour.\ Soon after Michalak was doing what he was

  • picked to do, and that is slotting over a penalty to reduce the margin to three points...\

  • Shortly after that as France cranked up the pressure, the Scots struggled to hold them

  • out and eventually were penalised by the ref for offside, and Michalak had the task of

  • kicking the sides level, the 30 year old did just that to make it 6 all.\

  • Michalak and Laidlaw exchanged a penalty a piece to leave it at 9 all.\

  • Tiredness was creeping in, and mistakes were being made.\

  • The first French try eventually arrived on 66 minutes Bastereaud and Nyanga involved,

  • before Wesley Fofana set sail for the line. He wasn't going to be stopped and Hoggs attempted

  • tackle looked weary. Fofana ran under the posts to give Michalak the easiest of tasks

  • with the conversion France with a 16-9 lead\ 10 minutes from time, France crossed over

  • again. The instigator was Mathieu Bastereaud once again with a rampaging run at the heart

  • of the Scots defence. He was thwarted, but the French maintained the pressure and as

  • the move continued, substitute Maxime Machenaud, found the other Maxime - Medard- who areered

  • over the line and suddenly hopes of avoiding the wooden spoon were alive with a 23-9 lead

  • after Michalak converted...\ Wonderful movement and pace from the French

  • backs and Scotland looked heavy legged.. France were now a penalty kick away from condemning

  • Ireland to the Wooden spoon, that was until five minutes from time when Scotland produced

  • one of those moments of real magic.\ From inside their own 22, the Scots moved

  • the ball wide. Centre Matt Scott made the break and drew the tacklers before releasing

  • Tim Visser who sprinted clear, for a really marvellous score. There was momentary flutters

  • for the Scots as Visser was challenged before getting the touchdown, which Ruari Jackson

  • converted for 23 - 16...\ Great pace from the man born in Holland for

  • his 2nd try of the championship\ A win for the French, but not by enough to

  • avoid the wooden spoon, or La Cuiller en Bois in French. Things can surely only get better

  • for them.\ Scotland finish the campaign with two wins,

  • and a degree of promise about the side interim coach Scott Johnston is putting together.\

  • Final score in the last match of the RBS 6 Nations for 2013.\

  • France 23 Scotland 16\ }
