6 Nations: You've got to see this!

The France v Scotland match on Friday night (and, it seems, all home French internationals) are being shown - live - in France on a TV channel called OrangeSport (wouldn't it be nice if that happened in this country?). Anyway - the great thing is that the recording is now available, its free, and there are no silly copyright restrictions (so you do not have to be in France to watch it).

And you really do have to see this (go here) as France are awesome, especially in the first half. Okay, Scotland cannot tackle for toffee in the first period, which doesn't help when they also seem to lack any sort of forwards (just as in the game against Spain a few weeks ago. Only worse), but even so its fantastic, flowing stuff from France.

On the downside clearly France do not have anyone who can kick - frankly most of their conversion attempts are plain embarrassing, a failing that could come to haunt them against teams that are capable of defending a bit - they cannot afford to throw away chances to pick up extra points when they meet Ireland or England. Scotland's kicker - Caroline Colley (of OA Saints, no less) - is, frankly, streets ahead, performing as well as she did against Spain. Shame she has so little support...
