Scotland v France live: Score and updates from the 2024 Six Nations
Scotland are looking to make it back-to-back victories to start the 2024 Six Nations as they take on France at Murrayfield this afternoon. In last year’s Six Nations, they won their opening two games for the first time in the competition.
Scotland were victorious in their opening match, but only just in the end. They were 27-0 up a few minutes into the second half against Wales and looked like winning the game with consummate ease. Wales then scored 26 unanswered points as Scotland held on to win by just the one point to secure their first victory in Cardiff in 22 years.
Scotland head coach Gregor Townsend knows the challenge facing his side this afternoon against a French team reeling from defeat.
“France will bring physicality, they will go for it in the set-pieces, the scrum and the maul. They play really close to the forwards, so whether it’s playing off (number) nine or the pick and go, they’re a strong carrying team.
