As a reminder, the French and the Scots clashed twice last summer in the build-up to the World Cup. Should the Tricolores win in Saint-Etienne during the second leg (30-27a meeting also marked by a serious injury to Romain Ntamacko), the Scots won at home the week before (25-21). Fabien Galthie’s players have two victories in the Tournament. During the 2022 Grand Slam, Greg Alldritt’s gang impressed at Murrayfield with a better record of 17 for 36. Scotland’s last defeat at the tournament dates back to 2020, during the first year of Galthia’s tenure.
