Player ratings: Gregory Alldritt excels but France hesitates

Following their 27-23 loss to Scotland in their Six Nations match in Paris on Friday, here are the ratings of the players from France.
15 Brice Dulin: A bad day at the office for the full-back, which cost his team the win by not returning the ball after the clock went red. 4

14 Damian Penaud: Better display of the kite, with it scoring one try and setting up another. A threat everywhere. 8

13 fallen farmers: Some good moments, including an assist for the Penaud test, but which did not really provide France with the necessary progress. 6

12 Arthur Vincent: Some good races, but it was hardly worth joining the team to break the Fickou-Vakatawa partnership. A bizarre decision by Fabien Galthie. 6

11 Gaël Fickou: Another very good performance from the back, taking some excellent high balls and showing his pace in the wider channels as well, but he’s more influential in midfield. 8

10 Romain Ntamack: Always at his best after an injury and he struggled in the conditions. A few nice touches but didn’t provide the control they needed. 5

9 Antoine Dupont: Easily his worst performance in the competition and shows he’s human. Yes, there were some typically great times, but his decision-making was flawed as Scotland managed to force him to make mistakes. 5

8 Grégory Alldritt: Continued his beautiful Six Nations with another superb display. Was all over the field. 8

7 Charles Ollivon (c): Not as influential as last weekend but still impressive. The battle between the rear ranks was one of the highlights of the game. 8

6 Anthony Jelonch: Justified its inclusion on Dylan Cretin with a good display. Has been a nuisance to the blackout and tackled hard to combine well with colleagues in the background. 7

5 Rebbadj swan: Scored a try, worn well and completed the full 80 minutes. 7

4 Bernard le Roux: I just returned from an injury and it shows. Did not dominate like he did in 2020 and was substituted early in the second period. 6

3 Mohamed Haouas: It doesn’t look like a match test prop at the moment. Was pretty solid but hasn’t contributed significantly in any of the games he’s played since making his debut last year. 6

2 Julien Marchand: A dynamic player who impresses on the pitch. Made a few key interventions and also wore well. 7

1 Cyril Baille: Not as good as last weekend on the loose, when the scrum was not as dominant as France wanted it to be. 6

Substitutes: Camille Chat offered energy on the bench, but other than that there wasn’t much to say. Scrum-half Baptiste Serin, in particular, had a shock, receiving a yellow card three minutes after coming on. 5
