Shaun Edwards responds diplomatically when French players are released into their clubs instead of playing for France against Italy next week: « I’ll just focus on getting the squad I’ve put together and I’ll let the powers that be clear. « . â ????
Jill Douglas tells Shaun Edwards, France’s defense coach, that they showed maturity today: « I totally agree, » he replies. I just said that to our back. I thought it was a very mature performance against a very good Scottish team. Throughout the game, I thought the match was in doubt . . . We were pretty resilient . . . We made some adjustments to our defense this week and Fabien Galthié has to give credit because it was his idea and it definitely worked . . . [It was about] patience in the kicking battle – people at home don’t notice how wet the ball was, how incredibly slippery it was out there. We had a bit of the magic of a crush, it was a wonderful attempt, wasn’t it? It was a pleasure to see. â ????
Scotland’s head coach Gregor Townsend speaks to Amazon: « It was a bit like an arm wrestling, we never got any further on the scoreboard, we came back often. » . . . We were tactically very good in the first half, but in the second half, after they scored that attempt, we were against it. â ????
â ???? Around the punishment . . . You can get so much out of a penalty, a field position or three points and they certainly did that today, they all scored their goals.
â ???? The players are down. I told them you learn in defeat. The effort was excellent . . . the character to come back and create an opportunity . . . This was thanks to the players. â ????
The Scottish Captain Stuart Hogg speaks: â €? For 75 minutes we were probably the better team . . . We slipped for 30 seconds [after half time] and they tried, so that’s frustrating . . . but we didn’t make trash overnight. We go back to the drawing board.
On the late, missed corner kick: « I made a mistake, I’ll wear it on my chin. I’m old enough and ugly enough to know that. I do not know. « I don’t need people to tell me.
â ???? We talked about being patient and supporting our kick game . . . We have put ourselves in some good positions . . . We get back on the horse and go again. â ????
On Vakatawa’s France attempt, Barclay added: « You were defending the player, not the game. » . . . It was about Dupont’s reputation. â ????
John Barclay speaks: « Scotland couldn’t get anything going today. » . . . There was no continuity, they couldn’t do anything, there was no cutting edge in their game and that’s unusual for a Gregor Townsend team. â ????
Habana: « Scotland’s execution and decision-making were not there ». They struggled to get started. When they got the chance, it was embodied in the kick from Hogg at the end. Your precision wasn’t good enough. â ????
Today’s man of the game, Vakatawa, speaks to Amazon Prime and is asked if he is happy with the result: « Absolutely, we’re very excited about today’s win. « We have worked so hard in the last few weeks and are very happy about the win . . . It is a good feeling.
« We know it will be difficult to get here. We stuck to our schedule and managed to score. « . It was teamwork. â ????

Câ ???? est la vie for Scotland, it’s all over. They seemed to have earned one last chance with that penalty deep in added time . . . Hogg tried to corner it, but boiled it over slightly and missed the touch. France happily threw the ball out and it will be. It was a pulsating match, actually a little too little rugby, with lots of kicks and lots of penalties. But there was some high quality stuff to see. France seem almost guaranteed to progress as their last group game is against Italy next Saturday. So it should be England versus France in the final in a couple of weeks, unless something extraordinary happens.
80 min 2: Scotland attack from their own half. Hogg has a strong breakout. He is being tackled . . . and Scotland gets a penalty . . . Hogg steps to the corner, but misses the touch! It’s over!
79 min: Scotland has the ball in France’s half and is looking for the converted points that would at least secure a draw. You move forward slowly with some strong porters but are then penalized for crossing – and France can clear as the seconds go by. But now Scotland has a crush! Just when it looked like France was going to shut it down.
77 min: Ritchie gives away another punishment for not rolling away. Ramos tries to kick it from 54 yards. It falls short.
75 min: Fickou tries to guard a good, searching kick from Stuart Hogg safely in the corner. He’s being pushed in the back and connected by Duhan Van der Merwe and it looks like a clear penalty but Barnes gives Scotland the line-out. In the resulting phase of the game, Scotland is punished by Jamie Ritchie for a slap in the face. Meanwhile, France are still seven points ahead and we are in the last five minutes so Scotland needs to find something somewhere.
72 min: The French No.. 8 Alldritt comes into contact in the Scottish half and is utterly mutilated in a giant textbook hit by George Turner, who has just emerged. Scotland, in turn, celebrates this major problem . . . then they win a penalty for the resulting scrum.
70 min: Scotland has a crush. It collapses and France wins the penalty. Therefore, they celebrate passionately. Gregor Townsend looks increasingly concerned in the stands. Bhatti, who just came, was punished there by Barnes. « Let’s face it, nobody knows about scrummaging, » I think the Amazon co-commentator just said so.
68 min: George Turner, Jamie Bhatti and Sam Skinner are all on the road for Scotland now.
Peter Webster: « Don’t copy the Irish anthem. « . Not the sterilized and politically correct Irish reputation, but Amhrán na bhFiann? Particularly relevant given the events in Croke Park 100 years ago. â ????
« I’m Irish and have no love for Amhrán na bhFiann or Ireland’s risky reputation. « . The two hymns that get my blood pumping are the French and the Russians, preferably performed by the Red Army Choir. â ????

Ramos hits another excellent kick and pulls the ball into the right post from an angle. It’s a seven point game where Galthi’s side starts to flex its muscles more and more.
60 min: It’s safe to say that Scotland is looking increasingly stretched. The French pack is starting to hit their opponents, that’s completely legal and that makes room for the back line. Stuart Hogg makes an excellent rift after France nearly got over the line in the left corner. But it is being withdrawn for another penalty for Les Bleus . . .
56 min: Mohamed Haouas, who was sent here in March, is coming now. France then rumbles a moving mouth many meters into the Scottish half. The power in the French pack seems to be showing. Vakatawa makes an arrow for the line leaving out some options outside of it, and Weir tackled it very well. Then Fickou had a try, but like Vakatawa he is repelled and Jalibert then hits a crossfield kick that he thinks is a free kick – but Barnes had overcome the advantage.
53 min: Scotland tries to gain a foothold in midfield. France holds on. Cyril Baille and Julien Marchand are on the road for France. The chat starts together with Gros. France scored a goal halfway in a central position and Marchand made an immediate impression when he came on as a substitute on the front row.
52 min: France has a line-out in a convenient location in the Scottish half, but it is inundated with chat and Scotland is pouring back onto the field with a flowing attack. But then the ball is struck by Scottish hands and it is a throw-in for France in their own half, in their own 22.
50 min: An email from David Rea with the title « Best National Anthem ». one???? It’s a fair call:
48 min: Vakatawa now appears on the right wing for France and cuts off a fancy little cultivator kick infield where Matt Fagerson is on hand to clean it up.
And Scotland responds immediately after France was again fined for offside. Four points – five penalties out of five for Weir.
Let’s go. A bit of room for France off the structured standard, out of the crowd, and Vakatawa is past the post. Rattez is the man who tees him off with a pass from his left hand after Rattez, in turn, was sacked by Fickou with a nice offload in midfield. Hogg almost pulls off a miracle device to stop Vakatawa, but the outer center rotates his body as he is felled and touches down. Nice rugby from France.
During the half-time analysis, a surprise was expressed that France chose to kick the final touch penalty for the first half rather than take the three. But I disagree – France even crossed the trial line and was unlucky not to get the try.
That was . . . Well? The 40 minutes seem to go by, even if there were many penalties. After a threateningly strong start by the visitors, Scotland have gained a foothold in the game and we’re all on the field at halftime. Some may feel that Wayne Barnes is a bit of a whistle, but you can’t deny that he explains all of his decisions eloquently and is fair and in tune with both teams. Back in a few minutes for a second half.
40 min 1: France is at the top of the crowd. You win a scrum penalty and then have a free attack with the advantage that referee Barnes plays. It will be brought back for the penalty kick, France will take a corner at Galthié’s direction and will try to maul at the end of this first half. It takes about four men to bring down Camille Chat as he tries to punch in the corner after the line-out . . . then France goes again, they come over the trial line, but Barnes says it’s stopped! No attempt.
40 min: Chat in contact with Jonny Gray in the Scottish half. He extends his right arm to prepare for contact . . . Wayne Barnes watches multiple reruns after being made aware of the incident by the TMO and decides it’s okay. Chat looks a little apprehensive as he waits for his fate – but it’s all good. Scrum for France for a kick-off.
Another nice kick from Weir after another violation by France (this time offside) and again we are at eye level. The kick was flawless from both teams and there was excellent continuity in both Scotland and France . . . It’s a stop-start thing, but I wouldn’t call it scratchy. Camille Chat is now investigating a possible foul play . . .
35 min: France pushes Scotland back into the crowd, but then its all-third No.. 8 failing to control it at the base, and the ball spurts out the side of the scrum where Scotland manages to claim it on the ground. A touch of luck for the hosts after Kinghorn’s first mistake.
33 min: We now had two scrums within three minutes, the first came from an impetus after Scotland’s restart. Scotland rise to the left but France manage to turn it around with a strong counterstrike. Kinghorn has a chance to kick but sends a booming attempt for too long making contact at the French end and Les Bleus will have an offensive scrum as a result.
