Scotland vs France – where and when
Scotland and France will meet on the field at Murrayfield in Edinburgh at 3pm Sunday.
That’s an 8am PT or 11am ET kick-off for rugby fans in the US and Canada, and a 2am AEDT start in the early hours of Monday morning for folk tuning in from Australia.
France’s last visit to Murrayfield saw them suffer a 17-14 defeat during in a World Cup 2019 warm-up game, but Galthie’s young guns have come a long way since then and will be strong favourites for a win here.
Worcester Warriors fly-half Duncan Weir could win his first cap for Scotland amid the continued absence of Finn Russell, whose loses his place as punishment for a breach of squad protocol, something that would appear to have badly unsettled the Scots.
