    Recap

    We have seen this story unravel before, France being crap for four years but come World Cup they find something that makes them one of those teams you do not want to face.

    On Saturday they smash Scotland, beating them 32-3 in their World Cup warmup match.

    It may have nit been Scotlands first choice team on the night but they were hopeless to the speed and execution from the French was just too much too handle for them.

    The French scored five brilliant tries through Alivereti Raka, Maxime Medard who went over twice, Gregory Alldritt and Antoine Dupont.

    Scotland could only manage one penalty in the match but it was not that there was not opportunities, they just could not execute them due to some brilliant defence from the French at times.

    The French started with a bang when Raka scored within the first two minutes of the test match.

    Lopez made it 10-0 after a a penalty in the 15th minute but they quickly extended the lead when Medard finished off a great buildup from the French.

    Hastings got a penalty over for the visitors for a 15-3 scoreline.

    Scotland lost then Hastings to a yellow card for slapping the ball down with the French taking full advantage to score through Alldritt.

    The Scots were able to hold the French until the 53 minute when quick hands send Medard over for his second try before Dupont went over as well.
    Scoring five tries to none is the best start the French could have dreamed off starting their preparations for the World Cup.
    Next week see them taking on Scotland again but this time at Murrayfield.
