While Scotland kicked off their Six Nations campaign with a victory that felt like a defeat, France began with a defeat that felt disastrous. And so there’s a real air of mystery surrounding their meeting at Murrayfield today.

Les Bleus were the pre-tournament favourites, and despite suffering a record home hammering by Ireland in the curtain-raiser that leaves them 6th in the standings, they haven’t become a terrible team overnight. 

It’s worth remembering that they had to play the majority of the game a man down after the early dismissal of Paul Willemse, though if Antoine Dupont was invaluable before, his stock has climbed further still in his absence.

Scotland have major questions to answer too, after going 27-0 up against a deeply inexperienced Wales team, only to then allow 26 points in a row in a shocking second-half display, which featured a pair of red cards and 14 penalties – in a row – at the cost of a precious bonus point.

Finn Russell was majestic with the ball, whether it was in his hands or off the tee, though the Scots look short of leadership, and it will be intriguing to see how co-captain Rory Darge gets on on his comeback from a lengthy spell on the sidelines.
