Six Nations: Laidlaw boots Scots to glory as France fade

Six Nations: Laidlaw boots Scots to glory as France fade

The BBC Sport app, available to download for free across Android, iOS and Windows Phone devices, will also carry the live coverage and text commentary.

Renowned for his kicking abilities, Beauxis has 20 test caps but last played for France six years ago in a Six Nations defeat in Wales.

And Laidlaw wants to see his team give the Scotland fans reasons to be proud.

"It's for Simon to show that we're not (weaker in the scrummage)", said Townsend.

"We need to fill those jerseys up in front of our own people".

Trump's speechwriter, Sorensen, resigns over abuse allegations
It is alleged that the former White House staff secretary gave one ex-wife a black eye while another filed a restraining order. It was his first comment on the allegations against Mr Porter, who had been one of his most trusted staffers until this week.


"It's hard to get back when the crowd is against you".

"It's a huge honour to be given the opportunity to wear that jersey, especially at home". We've definitely got the right sort of game plan to take on the best teams in the world, but it was just executed poorly by the players.

He also suggested ahead of this afternoon's Six Nations encounter at Murrayfield that Scotland, just like his team against Ireland, had a bad open day to the 2018 Champ-ionship.

Laidlaw is reunited with Glasgow Warriors stand-off Finn Russell at half-back after coming for Glasgow scrum-half Ali Price in Cardiff last weekend.

However, the third quarter proved to be a penalty-riddled affair as Laidlaw and French replacement Serin Baptiste traded a couple of goal kicks as each side desperately sought to establish some sort of ascendancy. "We expected a much better performance".

What the bipartisan budget deal means
The federal government has shut down after a quarreling Senate blew a midnight deadline to pass a temporary funding bill . Most Democrats in the House voted against the spending bill , trying to use it as leverage to get a vote on immigration.


"It is never great to be injured but the more experienced you get, the more you understand that perhaps it had come at a good time for me". The first five minutes in Cardiff was really good, but the snowball effect happened in the first half.

Simon Mail previews the second weekend of the Six Nations with Scotland hosting France and Ireland taking on Italy. "I don't think many people were expecting it and the fans are probably quite right to be a bit hacked off after a game like that, but no-one's hurting more than the players, so we need to put it right as well".

He was in line to retain the captaincy on the summer tour before the Lions call came, and again in the autumn, before injury struck again.

"We were just massively frustrated with the quality of our performance last week so for us it's just about us going out there and showing that doesn't represent what we're about as a team". It's about the collective, not individuals.

It took a while, but in the 71st minute Scotland established a lead for the first time in the clash, and they displayed the necessary composure to close out a deserved victory from there.

"I will be demanding high standards firstly of myself and then secondly of the players round about me".
