Here we go, here we go, here we go...


Scotland 20 - France
I have suffered through countless painful France-Scotland matches in the past nine years, ever the good loser. Needless to say, I was out this afternoon and missed our moment of glory. Allez L'Ecosse!

That at last prompted a positive response from the French and some swift passing allowed Bonnaire to cross the line in the corner. Elissalde, though, struck the post with his kick.

Paterson then missed a straightforward kick in front of the posts, and almost immediately afterwards Elissalde reduced the deficit with a kick of his own.

But far from capitulating as the French applied more concerted pressure, Scotland held firm, forcing their opponents into more mistakes.

As full-time approached, though, France pinned the Scots back and their patience paid off when Bruno powered over, only for Elissalde to miss the conversion and Scotland saw out the final minutes.



Good Luck Scotland and Wales

I'm English with a very diluted strain of Welsh in me. However, whenever anyone from the Isles is up against the French they have my strong support. I think my Frog's family were a mite upset when they realised that last year, as I celebrated the Welsh victory over the French.

And yes, I know... the Welsh, Scots & Irish would support anyone up against the English. But like the advert says, I'm not bitter.

Well, I was on an American Airlines flight yesterday, and they kept interrupting the film to report the superbowl scores. Annoying? you bet.
