  1. Over to Cardiff...

    FT: France 27-10 Scotland

    Well, if you're a Scotland fan, that was a rather deflating afternoon as Gregor Townsend's error-strewn and wasteful team were battered in Paris.

    Scotland host Wales in a couple of weeks' time then travel to Twickenham and will need to be immeasurably better to take anything from those Tests.

    France looked very, very good having been so very, very bad for most of the championship to date. They've got defending champions Ireland in Dublin next before finishing their Six Nations against Italy.

    Plenty more rugby to savour this weekend, though, starting with a massive clash in Cardiff between Wales and England.

    Follow the action here and enjoy the rest of your Saturday.

  2. 'You're not going to win with those stats'

    FT France 27-10 Scotland

    Colin Gregor

    Former Scotland Sevens captain on BBC Radio Scotland

    Quote Message: Scotland didn't put any real sustained pressure on France. They made nine line-breaks today and they scored one try off that. That sort of stat - you're not going to win international games. Great that you're making line-breaks, but so what if it doesn't lead to anything?

    Here's the late, late try that earned France their bonus point.

  4. Scotland 'our own worst enemy'

    FT: France 27-10 Scotland

    Peter Wright

    Former Scotland prop on BBC Radio Scotland

    Quote Message: We are our own worst enemy. We give poor passes. The eight times France crossed over the line, how many times was that down to errors from Scotland? France played well but they're not a good side and that's what hurts because it's one of the weakest French teams.
  5. France score big win

    FT: France 27-10 Scotland

    Quite a stat from Simon Gleave of Gracenote:

    France's 17-point victory is their biggest in the Six Nations against anyone other than Italy since they won 28-9 against Wales eight years ago.

  6. Replacing Russell and Hogg 'very hard' for Scotland

    FT: France 27-10 Scotland

    Tom English

    BBC Scotland's chief sports writer

    Quote Message: I can't see Scotland winning games like this without Finn Russell and Stuart Hogg. They're your two world class players and it's very hard to plug those gaps
  7. Watch: Price reduces Scotland deficit with late try

    FT: France 27-10 Scotland

    Here's the Ali Price try that gave Scotland fleeting hope of salvaging a losing bonus point. Instead, it was France who stretched their lead and took another point at the death.

  8. 'Old-time France blast Scotland'

    FT: France 27-10 Scotland

    Tom English

    BBC Scotland's chief sports writer

    Quote Message: France went back to old-time France and turned on the power. Their pack was tremendous all day and they blasted Scotland. They won a resounding victory. Scotland, when you're not taking your chances, you're not going to win Test matches.
  9. 'We couldn't make those final passes stick'

    FT: France 27-10 Scotland

    Scotland flanker Magnus Bradbury on BBC Radio Scotland: "It's frustrating to be involved in. I'm sure you saw how many chances we created for ourselves but we just couldn't make those final passes stick.

    "That's something we're going to have to look at next week and moving forward and get better at."

  10. Watch: Alldritt goes over for third French try

    FT: France 27-10 Scotland

    Here's the first of Gregory Alldritt's second-half double, the latter of which came a good eight minutes after the clock went red.

  11. Only two Scots earn pass marks from Wrighty

    FT France 27-10 Scotland

    Peter Wright

    Former Scotland prop on BBC Radio Scotland

    Quote Message: The starting XV - Jamie Ritchie and Grant Gilchrist for me were the two that you would say got plus points. The rest - disappointing. Too many errors. Poor passes. Poor skill-sets. We know it's a cauldron. I've been there, I've played there. It's a cauldron to play international rugby in, but you're an international rugby player and some of those performances, for me, weren't of international calibre.
  12. 'France are back'

    FT: France 27-10 Scotland

    Thomas Castaignede

    Former France international on BBC One

    Quote Message: The French spirit is back, quality at the set-piece, quality in the backs and the youngsters responded.
  13. 'Not good enough from Scotland'

    FT: France 27-10 Scotland

    Andy Nicol

    Former Scotland international on BBC One

    Quote Message: Not good enough from Scotland, they were not clinical enough, they had their chances but did not take them - very disappointing.
  14. Scottish wait for glory in Paris goes on

    FT: France 27-10 Scotland

    So, a day that began with such hope for Scotland ends in frustration and despair.

    They were bullied and bludgeoned by a resurgent French team that showed class in abundance and no little ruthlessness. They've answered a few critics after their insipid start to the championship.

    Romain Ntamack, Yoann Huget and a Gregor Alldritt double earned France a four-try bonus point.

    Scotland, error-strewn and wasteful, leave Paris with nothing.

    They have now lost 11 matches in the French capital since their last win 20 years ago.

  15. France look 'a complete side'

    FT: France 27-10 Scotland

    Andy Robinson

    Former England and Scotland head coach on BBC One

    Quote Message: France have controlled possession and territory, played with real accuracy and looked a complete side. Scotland did not challenge at the set-pieces like they would have liked.
  16. 'A horrific game'

    FT: France 27-10 Scotland

    Peter Wright

    Former Scotland prop on BBC Radio Scotland

    Quote Message: From a Scotland point of view it's been a horrific game. It's been poor. The bench came on and actually played pretty well. But you need to give yourself a foothold in the game before that happens and Scotland have not done that. Too many errors.

    SMS Message: Scotland are a complete shambles. This team has gone backwards with Townsend. Soft touch. from Scott McMillan

  18. Full-time France 27-10 Scotland

    French team celebrations
  19. Converted try France 27-10 Scotland

    Gregory Alldritt

    What a gutsy response this has been from France, under so much pressure coming into this game.

    They've kept going, kept bullying Scotland and punished them dearly.

    They had numerous opportunities to end the game with the clock red, but kept grafting to the 88th minute, when they land their bonus-point score.

    Gregory Alldritt gets his second of the afternoon. Anthony Belleau slots the conversion and brings to an end a breathless match.

  20. 'France pack turn back the clock'

    France 20-10 Scotland

    Andy Robinson

    Former England and Scotland head coach on BBC One

    Quote Message: The French pack taking control, like they did in the 2000s when they would take control late on in games. They have really controlled this game with their ball carrying and at the line-out - they have played very, very well.
