What TV channel is France vs Scotland on? Kick-off time and how to watch Six Nations fixture


Scotland face a real test of their Six Nations title credentials as they travel to Paris to face defending champions France on Sunday.

Gregor Townsend’s side have made a sensational start to their campaign with back-to-back wins over England and Wales.

Now Scotland go searching for a third win in a row, and will look to take inspiration from Finn Russell’s spellbinding performance against Wales in Round 2.

Scotland were the winners on their last trip to the Stade de France as Duhan van der Merwe’s late try snatched a win on the final day two years ago.

You have to go back to 1928 for the last time Scotland won back-to-back matches in Paris - but if they pull it off there will be real belief that they could sustain a Six Nations challenge this year. Here’s everything you need to know about the game:

When is France vs Scotland?
