Scotland Team To Face France

Scotland Team To Face France

A win for Scotland against France on Friday could see them finish the 2021 Six Nations in second place. 

Head Coach Gregor Townsend has made four changes to his starting XV for Scotland’s final Six Nations match against France at Stade de France, Paris, on Friday 26 March – kick off 8pm (UK time).

Finn Russell and Ali Price return to form the half-backs, with Chris Harris selected at centre and hooker George Turner also returning to the starting line-up.

Captain Stuart Hogg moves to his more familiar role at full-back having played at stand-off in the record win over Italy at BT Murrayfield on Saturday, with try scorers from that game, Darcy Graham and Duhan van der Merwe, again lining up on the wing.

Sam Johnson partners Harris in the centres with Huw Jones providing cover from the bench alongside Scott Steele and Adam Hastings, who is poised for his first involvement of the championship following his return from injury.

Turner’s return sees the hooker pack down with Rory Sutherland at loosehead and Zander Fagerson at tighthead, with Grant Gilchrist and Sam Skinner combining again in the second row.

Jamie Ritchie, Hamish Watson and Matt Fagerson comprise the back row for the fourth time this championship.

Hooker David Cherry, who scored a brace of tries against Italy, is joined by Oli Kebble and Simon Berghan as front row cover, with last week’s debutant Alex Craig and Nick Haining offering further forward options from the bench.
