2018 Six Nations
Scotland (14) 32
Tries: Maitland, Jones Cons: Laidlaw 2 Pens: Laidlaw 6
France (20) 26
Tries: Thomas 2 Cons: Machenaud 2 Pens: Machenaud 2, Serin 2

Scotland put defeat by Wales behind them to overcome France at Murrayfield and revive their Six Nations campaign.

The first of two Teddy Thomas tries put France into an early 10-0 lead before Sean Maitland crossed for Scotland.

Thomas gathered a lucky bounce to score again but the hosts replied via Huw Jones’ try, only for Maxime Machenaud’s second penalty to put France 20-14 up.

Greig Laidlaw kicked six penalties, to two from Baptiste Serin, to steer the Scots home in a tense second half.

Scotland will next face reigning champions England at Murrayfield on Saturday, 24 February (16:45 KO), while France host Italy on Friday, 23 February (20:00 KO).
