Have to say he is. I feel like the injuries to Finn and Hastings have been good for him, seems to have made him step up and realise he can organise from the base he doesn't have to just rely on his 10.

Hogg gives that and Duhan is in.

Yeah not good.

Some pretty poor kicking from a few so far.

Work on not conceding straight after every score and the Scots could have this. France seem pretty muted.

Fagerson seems to have snapped out of it after that daft penalty.

True. Was thinking if this turns into an arm wrestle that favours France on account of them being humungous, but actually it mightn't be so bad, we're pretty scrappy

Good call by the ref. Much as I enjoy seeing non hookers throw into the lineout

That was really good defence by Kinghorn off the side of that maul.

Then by Weir and then by Kebble and Ritchie.

We need to wake up. Being as quiet as that and being 12 all is a huge boost.

Also on other matters. A scrum going backwards is not automatically a penalty. It isn't clear other than going backwards was wrong with the Scotland scrum there.

Great defence. Was quite funny in the build-up. I could swear Wayne barnes said “don’t touch! Don’t touch it, Richie”. Then Johnny Gray looked up and took his hands off the ball.

Hmm. A bit scrappy. Was hoping for better than that. Galthié will be far from happy and I expect a more controlled approach in the 2nd half. I wouldn’t be surprised to see Louis Carbonel at 10 sooner than expected.

Very happy to be even at half time. Some good moments and some very dull ones. Need to sharpen up or France will take advantage of their physical dominance eventually.

No injuries yet? When is the last time this happened?
