France make six changes ahead of Scotland clash

France make six changes ahead of Scotland clash


France head coach Annick Hayraud knows her side cannot rest on their laurels if they are to leave Scotland with a victory in their Round 4 clash at Scotstoun on Saturday evening.

Les Bleus head to Glasgow on the back of two successive wins, including a 50-0 victory over Wales last time out, as they sit second in the table with two rounds of fixtures left to play.

Hayraud has made six changes for the weekend’s clash, with a Caroline Boujard and Camille Boudaud among those coming into the starting XV.

There are also starting berths for Lise Arricastre, Lenaig Corson, Celine Ferer and Camille Imart, as a fresh looking France squad look to continue where they left off after the recent rest week.

And Hayraud knows that despite their opponents not tasting victory so far in this year’s Championship, her side will have to be on top of their game if they want to keep the pressure on England at the top of the table.

“We are looking for continuity after our match in Wales, we are satisfied with the performance in Wales even if there are still things that we need to correct especially on the discipline.

“In Scotland, you will have to erase the little things that sometimes make a big difference at the very highest level.”
