Women's Six Nations: France wins in Scotland in pain

The spectacle will not have been there this Saturday in Edinburgh but the French team will at least have the satisfaction of having preserved the essential, namely a second victory in two matches in this Six Nations Tournament. But it was hard against the valiant Scottish women, beaten by nothing (5-15).

The Blues did not want to fall into the Scottish trap and they were right to be wary. Courageous in defense, very disciplined and well helped by a favorable wind, the Scots made the French doubt throughout the first period. Certainly dominant, the teammates of captain Manae Feleu had several test ammunition but each time were too imprecise and showed haste in the scoring zone.

Stopped several times in front of the Scottish goal line (9th, 20th, 27th, 29th), the Blues lacked efficiency and accuracy unlike Scotland. Although led by the XV of France after a penalty from Lina Queyroi (13th), the Scots took advantage of one of their only forays into the opposing 22 to form a maul a few meters from the goal and score the first test of the match thanks to Elis Martins (35th).

Despite the change of sides and the support of the wind in the second half, the problem remained the same for the Blues. Lacking lucidity in the opposing 22 (42nd, 47th, 50th), like a completely missed foot pass from Lina Queyroi (42nd), the French had all the difficulty in the world to score their first try. We had to wait until the 53rd minute and a well-negotiated surplus to Kelly Arbey's wing. The Blues will go to queens a second time at the very end of the match after the siren to confirm this success thanks to a try from Émeline Legros (80th).

Struggling to get out of their camp against the wind, the Scots were unable to put themselves in a scoring position to get back into the lead. They therefore bow with regrets, especially after the failures against Nelson's poles and do not confirm their success on the lawn of Wales. The Blues, for their part, have a second victory without convincing but are still in the game to believe in a final victory in this Six Nations Tournament. Next meeting against Italy, April 14 at 1:30 p.m., on the pitch of the Stade Jean-Bouin in Paris.
