  • That is that in Paris and the end of Six Nations 2013. France win 23-16 but cannot avoid picking up the Wooden Spoon. Scotland finish in third spot in the standings. Thanks for joining us. Take care.

    Full time
  • The official man of the match is Fofana by the way as Scotland prepare to put in in their own 22.

  • JACKSON CONVERSION! 23-16! The replacement fly-half adds the simple two points.

  • VISSER TRY! 23-14! What a break-out try from the Scots. They race from their own 22 before the final pass on the opposition 22 finds the lethal wing, who takes his championship tally up to two scores.

  • Christophe Samson is on for Vahaamahina while Ryan Wilson on the field for Scotland, who can score their first try of the night here if they make the most of this break. But unfortunately for them, Scott knocks-on five metres out just when it looked like the visitors were about to cross the line.

  • MACHENAUD CONVERSION! 23-9! Michalak is off with a shoulder injury so the scrum-half kicks the two.

  • MEDARD TRY! 21-9! France put this game to bed as Bastareaud breaks the line before Medard does the rest. Scotland are now well down and with the conversion set to be added, France are steaming ahead.

  • MICHALAK CONVERSION! 16-9! Simple enough.

  • FOFANA TRY! 14-9! They have their try. Some offloading down the right wing leads to Fofana finding room in front of him. He took his chance and slipped Hogg en route to going under the uprights.

  • Here come France again, this time from halfway with Huget. Scotland are giving everything in defence.

  • France have just butchered a few opportunities here and Debaty is the main culprit. After bumping off three tacklers he then failed to make the most of a two on one ten metres out and ultimately Scotland pounced on him whilst on the ground to win a penalty. How have France not scored a try in this half?

  • Scotland clear their lines through Weir and it's a very good touch from him that takes his side over halfway. His forwards will be loving that one as they can jog into opposition territory with ease.

  • LAIDLAW PENALTY! 9-9! We are level again then as France are caught offside. Laidlaw makes no mistake.

  • We have a French scrum about 30 metres from their own line so some respite for Scotland in terms of territory. Despite this game only churning out fifteen points thus far, it's improving by the minute.

  • Vincent Debaty and Guilhem Guirado are on for France while Alastair Kellock replaces Gilchrist

  • MICHALAK PENALTY! 9-6! This is relentless from Les Bleus. They are all over the Scots right now.

  • Michalak is enjoying these little chips over the top and they are causing Scotland problems on their 22. This time Hogg is forced to hack the ball into the stands so it's a home line-out. More pressure.

  • MICHALAK PENALTY! 6-6! We are all square in Paris.

  • France are looking ominous here as Weir is isolated and turned over. Michalak looks to the corner and Medard on the left side, with Scotland having to back-track here in defence. They do enough though in the end to stop the five-pointer but have gone offside so Michalak will have the chance to level here.

  • MICHALAK PENALTY! 3-6! France are on the board after a scrum penalty allows Michalak to send one over.
