First Try Scorer Predictions & Tips: France v Scotland (Friday 20:00 GMT)

France know what they have to do in order to lift the Six Nations title when they entertain Scotland at the Stade de France in Paris on Friday evening. A bonus point – thanks to scoring four tries – and a points margin success of over 21 would see them win the title, they need to ensure that bonus point or the margin of victory will not matter. So, as you can tell, France need to score plenty of tries. Hopefully this will mean they will through the ball around and take some calculated risks in order to get the points needed. France will be without the suspended Paul Willemse and the injured Matthieu Jailbert, while Arthur Vincent starts at centre with Gael Fickou moving onto the wing. Fickou is a beast with the ball in hand, and moving him to the wing means they will be looking to get him the ball in open space. I am backing Les Bleus to get the ball to Fickou early on and he will go over for the opening try.
