Damian Penaud celebrates scoring France’s fifth try in the win over Scotland

France took a significant step towards claiming the Six Nations title for the first time since 2010 with a six-try 36-17 victory against Scotland at Murrayfield on Saturday.

Tries from Paul Willemse, Yoram Moefana and Gael Fickou helped France into a 19-10 lead at half-time, but Scotland could well have been much closer at the break had Stuart Hogg been able to add to Rory Darge’s try from a scintillating attack.

Jonathan Danty sealed the bonus point for Les Bleus within two minutes of the restart and the finishing touches were put on the win by Damian Penaud grabbing a late double to ensure they made it three wins from three in this year’s tournament.
