French rugby fans hoping for a quiet night in the pubs of Grassmarket were met with a dose of reality with a projection poking fun at them following Scotland’s Six Nations victory on Sunday.

Following Scotland's remarkable 28-17 victory at Murrayfield, inspired by two tries from Sean Maitland, French fans’ dreams of a Grand Slam were shattered.

However, Biddy Mulligans in Grassmarket decided to poke fun at the French fans with a projection of Scotland captain Stuart Hogg, alongside the phrase ‘C’est la vie’.

The projection celebrating Scotland's victory over France

Projected on the side of the pub by the lager brand Tennent’s, the projection shows Hogg passionately singing Flower of Scotland along with the reminder to the French that not everything in life goes their way.

George Kyle, head of PR and sponsorship at Tennent’s Lager said: “What an incredible result. We’re a proud supporter of Scottish rugby and really pleased to be able to share this victory with all the fans across Scotland.

“We hope everyone has a fantastic evening celebrating and if you’re passing Biddy Mulligans, be sure to toast the victory with a pint of Tennent’s.”
