  • Full-time: Scotland 17-19 France

  • PENALTY, FRANCE, DOUSSAIN. 17-19. The lead is with the French once again. It came after replacement Tim Swinson was penalised for not releasing the tackled player. Just over a minute now remains.

  • Now, is this France's moment? They have territory and decent line-out ball on a rare occasion today. Medard takes them into the 22 on the left wing as Scotland look to avoid offending at the breakdown.

  • The sound of Pollock's whistle and arm going up on the Scottish side is followed by shouts of approval from the Murrayfield faithful as Weir calls for the tee once again. 44 metres out...this one is wide.

  • Cheers from Brown and the Scotland pack as Ford and others hold up Machenaud close to halfway, earning the scrum put-in. It's now clock-watching time...

  • Scotland weather the storm though and bounce back off the ropes, moving up to halfway with a scrum put-in. Gael Fickou and Vincent Debaty are on for France as they replace Bastareaud and Vahaamahina.

  • Well, Scotland have the scrum reversed in their favour. The dark arts as France wonder how that happened. Fortunately for them they soon get hold of possession again with Bastareaud running hard.

  • France could have easily been handed a penalty as they made a right mess of Scotland's scrum 40 out there. Instead Pollock wants a reset. Big moment.

  • PENALTY, SCOTLAND, WEIR. 17-16. Vahaamahina now fails to release the tackled player so up steps Weir - taking over from Laidlaw - with a fine kick.

  • Now it is the scrum-half for France as he clearly feeds a scrum. A smile from Machenaud acknowledges his blunder and at the resulting set-piece France offend. Laidlaw points to the points...just short.

  • Unlucky from a rampaging Grant down the wing as he is brought to ground and ultimately has a hand in touch 30 from the French line. But with France's line-out as it is, Scotland may get the ball back soon enough. This time it functions though, just.

  • Scotland put boot to ball on back-to-back phases and come out on top as they are now in possession on halfway. Still plenty of time left in this one.

  • Hooker Mach is off for Guirado while Remi Tales is on for Plisson at fly-half. Back to the action and Scotland are countering right now from their own 22 and it's Evans leading the break-out with Hamilton involved. No reward comes. Scrum on their own 22.

  • CONVERSION, FRANCE, MACHENAUD. 14-16. Key points.

  • TRY, FRANCE, HUGET. 14-14. Oh dear oh dear. France pounce in their own 22 and it's Huget as he races up to intercept a pass. No one was catching him, with the Toulouse man going 85 metres to score.

  • Scotland are eating up the metres now too before Weir puts boot to ball, looking for Gray to get there five metres out. He was never going to make that though so it's a defensive throw for France.

  • Mach's woes continue at the line-out as he goes long and wide with his opening throw of the half. Net result, it's a Scotland scrum 40 metres out.

  • Welcome back to Murrayfield where France walked out and Scotland jogged, summing up the mood in both camps. The hosts kick off before Plisson replies.

  • Half-time: Scotland 14-9 France

  • The half ends with a missed penalty attempt from Machenaud wide on the right touchline to him. It remains at 14-9 then with Scotland surely happy.
