Vive la France, allez les bleus, etc...
France 12-10 England
It's all over for another year, the Six Nations title will reside in Paris for the next 12 months as France stumble over the line to claim the Grand Slam and the Six Nations Championship. Congratulations les bleus.
Sadly Scotland could only manage to finish second from bottom. So let's celebrate another famous French victory over the English with the memory that all Scots were once French citizens, until that right was revoked by the French government in 1903.
In every combat where for five centuries the destiny of France was at stake, there were always men of Scotland to fight side by side with men of France, and what Frenchmen feel is that no people has ever been more generous than yours with its friendship.
