SCOTLAND – FRANCE. Score, trials and penalties live, result, summary … Live the rugby match between the XV of France and the XV of Chardon counting for the Autumn Nations Cup.
15 | 22
Thomas Ramos felt he was typing despite the low percentage chance of success. The ball was in midfield, in front of the posts. After 77 minutes of play in the legs, the French did not have the strength to find the length. It’s still 15-22 for France.
Scotland had finally approached the French in-goal. A touch of 5 meters for Scotland raised fears of hot action to come. But it was quickly stifled by a very good French defense who took advantage of an average touch to tackle the receiver. The attack is repulsed and the ball changes sides! It’s well done!
The game is very choppy since the French test. The two teams make several mistakes, a lot of kicking, changes on both sides … in short, few opportunities to bite. The Scots are showing very little danger and have not approached the French 22 meters for a long time.
Thomas Ramos continues his faultless. Scotland are penalized, which benefits the French striker. Thomas Ramos is precise. His ball touches the Scottish right post but it passes! France is now 7 points ahead! 22 to 15.
What an opportunity for the Blues! The enormous work of Vakatawa who passes 2 Scots and transmits on his left. The French advance, enter within 5 meters to find Fickou who is caught 2 meters from the in-goal. The action stops. The ball is released for Jalibert who sees Teddy Thomas on the other side of the field. He chooses to kick the foot but it’s too short and a Scottish comes to catch the ball. Pity !
Jalibert is surprised and steals the ball while France had started a block. The Scots therefore recover the ball but commit a forward … not seen by the referee. The action continues but the Blues defend well and recover possession of the cook after a new Scottish forward … This time sanctioned by the ‘man in black’.
Ah la la … new fault of the XV of France. Duncan Weir is 10 yards in front of the posts. As much to say to you that it has no evil to put 3 points more. What a pity, it’s only 19-15 for Fabien Galthié’s men.
HERE IT IS !!!!! Fickou finds Vincent Rattez just before the tackle, the Frenchman is accompanied by Vakatawa who goes to the end. Vakatawa is served and caught by a Scotsman but still manages to turn and flatten! Behind, Ramos is precise and transforms. It’s 19-12 for the Blues!
Come on, let’s go! The French are launching this second period! At the break, the French and the Scots are back to back, 12 everywhere.
Ouuuhh the magnificent fray of the XV of France !! A very good phase of play for the French who find themselves 2 meters from the Scottish in-goal! Vakatawa is very close to scoring the first try of the game but, on the back, he can not flatten. The Scottish defense was present in numbers! The referee whistles the break on this parity score! 12 everywhere!
On a big tackle, Camille Chat is not far from being penalized. The Frenchman had his elbow forward before touching the Scotsman lightly in the throat. After viewing the video, the referee did not wish to sanction the Frenchman, judging that the movement of the arm was not dangerous.
Succession of kicking, candle light. If France recovers some balloons, it loses them with faulty hands. French forward at the moment which allows the hairy Duncan Weir to take 3 additional points.
Duel of the scorers this afternoon. The Scots also commit another foul on the kick-off. Like his Scottish counterpart, Thomas Ramos is precise. Slightly off-center, the tricolor striker passes the oval between the posts. 12 to 9!
New penalty for the Scots. Facing the post, Duncan Weir easily transforms. Scotland is picking up quickly. 9 everywhere. The Blues are waterproof but make too many mistakes.
What a relaunch from Thomas Ramos in midfield! The French returned to the heart of the Scottish defense to then pass on to Dupont with a high class chistera. The game calms down and the ball comes out on Jalibert who tries a drop facing the post at about thirty meters. And it passes! The Blues are back in front! 9 to 6.
