9:30 am on 8 February 2010

The young French rugby centre Mathieu Basteraud, who was sent home from France's New Zealand last year, scored two tries to help his side to an 18-9 win over Scotland in their Six Nations match this morning at Murrayfield.

France host champions Ireland this weekend in what could be the pivotal match of the championship while Scotland travel to Wales on the same day.
