The challenge is tough, as it is about winning at Murrayfield, where the French have won twice in their history, on Saturday 18 March (1:30 a follow on France 2 and, on the occasion of the sixth and final day. With four defeats in four matches, Italy have just one point on the clock and are heading into their eighth consecutive season finishing in bottom place.

On the other hand, the Scots will be looking to get back to winning ways at home after a frustrating defeat by Ireland (7-22) last week. The XV du Chardon will have to compose without its two stars and main assets: Finn Russell and Stuart Hogg, injured.
