There was yet more disappointment for France on home soil as following on from their narrow defeat to South Africa at the Rugby World Cup, they were simply blown away by Ireland in their opening Six Nations game. Fabien Galthié’s side did play much of the game with 14 men but missed the creativity and flair of captain Antoine Dupont. 

The scrum-half’s decision to miss the tournament has been a huge blow for Les Bleus, with his replacement Maxime Lucu struggling to make an impact in Marseille. France will hope he can deliver in Edinburgh and may well choose to reinstate rising star Louis Bielle-Biarrey to the starting XV. 

Scotland are unlikely to make many changes from the side that won in Cardiff last weekend but coach Gregor Townsend will want a more disciplined display. Having raced into a 27-0 lead, thanks in large part to Finn Russell, they conceded 14 penalties and almost allowed their huge advantage to slip away. 

Having been given an almighty scare in the second half against Wales, Scotland will now aim to emulate last year when they won their opening two fixtures in the Six Nations. 

Here's how they line up:

Scotland XV: Paterson, Rowe, H Jones, Tuipulotu, Van der Merwe, Russell (co-capt), White; Schoeman, Turner, Z Fagerson, Gilchrist, Cummings, M Fagerson, Darge (co-capt), Dempsey.

Replacements: Ashman, Hepburn, Millar-Mills, Skinner, Christie, G Horne, Healy, Redpath.

France XV: Ramos, Penaud, Fickou, Danty, Bielle-Biarrey, Jailbert, Lucu; Baille Mauvaka, Antonio, Woki, Gabrillagues, Cros, Ollivon, Alldritt (capt).

Replacements: Marchand, Taofifenua, Aldegheri, Tuilagi, Roumat, Boudehent, Le Garrec, Moefana.
