Scotland was wondering what might happen after the win in Paris that gave them a historic second result in this year’s tournament, but they still finished fourth.
The breakthrough in a revamped tie due to an epidemic lockdown in France means Wales have won the Six Nations title.
For the Scots, it was the satisfaction of their first win on French soil since 1999, adding to their first success at the Twickenham sign in 1983.
This is the first time Scotland has achieved the same double since 1926.
The narrow defeats of the Irish and the Welsh afforded the Scots what they had promised much after this victory over the English.
The difference of the latest success and 21-point win over a team in need of the talisman was even more noticeable after the talisman Finn Russell’s expulsion, apparently with a mountain to climb the Scots.
Scotland head coach Gregor Townsend said: “I am very proud of the team. They came here with little adversity without our entire squad, one of our starters got hurt on Wednesday, a yellow card, a red card, we had to come back against a very good team, but they took courage, effort, unity. Appear. . And the ability to win. A great end to a really promising season for us.
“Even though we finished fourth, it looks like one of our best seasons with this year’s win and especially today’s performance.
“These are the last two years that we have been competitive in every sport. We have grown a lot this year, we have grown a lot this season and we have to keep growing in the years to come.
