So... do we think Scotland will score a couple more tries before France completely implode and start swinging haymakers everywhere, or just stop tackling and let Scotland walk in a cricket score?

The French would probably lose the fight they are so poor today.

England will be kicking themselves. A grand slam was an open goal this year. Not that the tournament will ever get finished but still

Scots have played this clown like a violin at the breakdown. If they moved away any slower, it'd be the 2022 fixture.

The umbrella defence is making the French halfback pairing look very ordinary.

Put a player in their eyeline and they are back to the aimless 'turn and run back behind the ruck looking for a prop to give it to'.

That clear out was as bad as the one on Curry. The refs really don't give a shit.

Scotland must be close to losing more lineouts than they've won.

Very impressed with Scotland’s defence.
They’ve completely neutralised Dupont and only allowed a few opportunities for the rest of their backline.
