Scotland under-20s lost out to France 36-8 in Grenobles last night.
The visitors started the Six Nations game well and after a good break by winger Darcy Graham the first points came in the 11th minute from a penalty by Connor Eastgate, who had started instead of the ill Josh Henderson at stand-off, and it was 3-0.
The visitors then frustrated the hosts until just before the half hour when France took the lead through a try by second-row Mickael Capelli, converted by stand-off Romain Ntamack. Ntamack added a penalty and France led 10-3 at the break.
France’s second try then came in the 44th minute through scrum-half Baptiste Couillourd to make it 15-3.
Scotland fought back through an unconverted try by hooker Fraser Renwick.
However, three late converted tries gave France a convincing victory.
