Scotland v France: Live scoring

Stade de France, Paris
kick-off: 8pm GMT (9pm local)
Scotland take on France in the final game of the 2013 RBS 6 Nations Championship.

Blustery conditions, nervy anthems and the rain lashes down at Stade de France tonight.

Hogg fumbles the early pass - conditions making the ball slippery and pitch breaking up. Picamole gives away the first penalty to Scotland which Laidlaw slots to put Scotland 3-0 ahead after 8 minutes.

France fight back and advance to Scotland's 22 but the action switches immediately back upfield, Hogg is unduly retsrained by the French attack and Scotland get another penalty. The kick from Laidlaw sails between the uprights and it's 6-0 after 14 minutes.

Twenty minutes gone and still 6-0 to Scotland -some nervy play and uncharacteristic slip-ups from Hogg. France camped on the Scots' 5m and drive across the line but referee Owens declares the ball is held up.

Great defence by the Scots as France surge agains and again and it's penalty to Scotland on their own line, kicked clear by Weir.

Maitland looks to have taken a knock and is replaced by Evans, just on the half hour.

Pick and goes from Brown at the next lineout and a spilled ball from Clerc, wee chip from Laidlaw almost collected by Lamont just short of the line, at 33m.

Evans chips and runs after his own kick but doesn't quite keep up with the ball as it goes over the line.Long kick from Michalak is collected by Evans on half time but he decides not to kick out and play continues until Weir kicks out.

HT: 6-0

Second half kicks off at pace but Scots lose the early lineout and tempers flare there as fists are aimed in Stuart Hogg's direction by Michalak and there's a talking to from the ref.

 Penalty to France, taken by Michalak, to put the first points on the board for France - 6-3 after 44m. France now on the front foot and another penalty five minutes later, slotted again by Michalak to make it 6-6 at 49m.

It's all France now as they force mistakes form Scotland and have another penalty attempt - Michalak puts the home side ahead for the first time 9-6 at 54m.

New cap Gilchrist is replaced by Kellock as France continue the pressure but a fumbled French ball gives Laidlaw the penalty in front of the posts as he levels the scores - 9-9 (60m).

Try to France after 66m as Fofana beats Hogg's tackle to the line, the core converted by Michalak to make it 16-9 with 15m to go.

Medard makes the break and crosses for another try, converted by Machenaud - 23-.

Great break from Scott who offloads to Visser for the try - conversion quickly taken by Jackson to make it 23-16 with 2m to go.

Scotland  pile on the pressure in the closing minutes, with a scrum penalty on 80m but the ball's knocked on and it's all over.

FT: 23-16
