Paris (AP) – France beat Scotland 27-23 in their last attempt to win the Six Nations title in Wales on Friday.
France played the match with 23-20 injuries, but defender Brice Dolein strangely decided not to hit the ball in connection with the victory, if he did.
The Scots put a lot of pressure in 22 rounds, with left-back Duhan van der Merwe entering the left corner in the 85th minute with his second-night experience, securing Scotland’s first win in Paris since 1999.
Eleven years after the final victory in the tournament, France needed four bonus points to gain և 21 points in the final of the tournament at the empty Stade de France.
The French really got three attempts, but they also got points, got the right to the ball, came back in second place, like last year.
Over the weekend, France stopped Wales from winning the Grand Slam on their own last try, ironically to Dulin at the Stade de France, but Wayne Pivac’s revived squad eventually won a second title in three years.
One intense match on Friday ended with 14 players on each side of the final.
Scotchfly Finn Russell received a red card, and a replacement tray Baptist Serin was acquitted of the incident moments later to confuse Scotland’s pollution.
The cards came too late to make a serious difference in where the title ended.
But the initiative of coach Gregor Townsend, Scotland, deserved the French side, affected by the weight of the positive expectation of victory, which returned to the careless mistakes of recent years.
