France vs Scotland result: Wales win the 2021 Six Nations title after the Scots' victory in Paris


Wales were crowned Guinness Six Nations champions as Duhan Van Der Merwe’s last-minute try earned Scotland their first victory in France this century.
France were to score four tries and beat Scotland by 21 points to deny the title to Wales, but the visitors surprised their hosts with a 27-23 victory.

Two tries from Van Der Merwe and one from replacement hooker Dave Cherry ensured Scotland’s first win in Paris since 1999, despite wins from Stuart Hogg and Finn Russell.

Brice Dulin, Damian Penaud and Swan Rebbadj crossed paths for the hosts, but they never seemed to hold their heads high to deliver a double blow to Wales after drastically denying Wayne’s side Pivac le Grand Slam six days earlier.

It was another rare away win for the Scots following triumphs in Wales and England over the past six months.
