Local rugby internationals Magnus Bradbury and Abi Evans did not get much of a chance to shine last Saturday as the French ladies and mens teams ran roughshod over their Scots visitors.
Playing at the Stade de France on Saturday, Magnus contributed greatly to a massive defensive effort from the injury ravaged Scottish side who ultimately fell to a 27-10 defeat.
France ran in four tries to take their first win of this year’s Six Nations Championship, hoisting them up to fourth place and leaving the Scots in fifth going into the fourth round when they face new leaders Wales, who beat England last weekend, a week on Saturday.
Having only just returned to the professional ranks, following a lengthy spell of injury, the 23-year-old back row man is likely to feature in that game also.
Abi didn’t fare much better in Lille when the Scotland Ladies came out on the wrong end of a 41-10 scoreline in their third-round Six Nations clash.
The 22-year-old winger came off the bench for the final 10 minutes of the game.
