Scotland Women fought hard today but still suffered a defeat to their French counterparts.
Despite scoring two tries, through winger Tanya Griffiths and captain Jilly McCord the score finished 43 -15, with scrum-half Sarah Gill kicking a penalty and a conversion. Assistant coach Jamie Dempsey was positive about the game and felt that the team started well before slowly dropping off.
He said: "The first half performance was excellent and we set ourselves a very high standard. However the second half took its toll on our fitness levels and we did end up looking a little jaded."
Dempsey remains optimistic head of next week's trip to Wales. He said: "If we can give the same sort of commitment and determination next week against Wales, we stand a good chance of coming away with a good result."
Scotland women play Wales next Sunday at Taftwells, kick-off 1:00pm and tickets will be available at the gate.
