History! Scotland ended up winning in a tough match (11-6) with a 38-run win in England on Saturday, but where they found a perfect game plan they were able to implement until the end.

In terms of passion, we are far from the crazy comeback of 2019 where, 31–0 at half-time for XV de la Rose, an improbable 38–38 draw was born that we thought would be remembered for the coming. For years.

Less than two years later, the Scots have fared better, at least in terms of results and history, with this good success.

Facing the winners of the 2020 edition, Scotland confirmed last year’s beautiful promises when they lost their first two matches in Ireland and beat France to their only defeat (28–17) before winning the next three matches against England. . in Wales.

More than a victory, it was the impression of domination given by Greg Townsend’s men, rarely so crowded and uprooted against the British, which impressed.

The pack of XVs at Chardon were placed under the extinguished English forward and the game at the foot of Finn Russell and Stuart Hogg allowed a wise possession on the ground, which weighed the English down.

The only real fear for the Scots was this yellow card against the same Russell at the end of the first period (38th), which had an unfortunate turn on an opponent pulling his leg for voluntary crochet.

A numerical advantage that the English would not have exploited, nor have they been able to tell the difference in the last ten minutes when the KO was on the air on either side.

England would have to rebound very quickly, with the French receiving the right Italians at home at the opening of the tournament (10–50).

Scotland will challenge the Blues for a match that already smells of powder before moving to Paris.
