France beat Scotland but still finish last in Six Nations

Text by News Wires

Latest update : 2013-03-17

A 23-16 victory over Scotland in Paris on Saturday was not enough to prevent France finishing last in the Six Nations for the first time since 1999.

France finished last in the Six Nations for the first time since 1999 despite finally winning a match, scoring two tries to beat Scotland 23-16 at Stade de France on Saturday.

The home side went off to jeers after trailing 6-0 at halftime but scored tries through center Wesley Fofana and winger Maxime Medard following a sustained spell of pressure after the break. However, Scotland winger Tim Visser’s late try in the right corner ended all hopes of overtaking next-to-last Ireland, which had earlier lost to Italy.

The French had started the tournament with high hopes after impressive test wins against Australia and Argentina late last year, but opened its campaign with a defeat at Italy before losing at home to Wales and away to England.
