Watch: Wales clinch Six Nations title as French crash to Scots

Wales won the Six Nations title on Friday after closest rivals France slumped to a 27-23 defeat to Scotland in Paris.

France needed to beat the Scots by 21 points and score four tries in the final match of the tournament to have any hope of denying Wales a sixth title since 2005.

In the end, Duhan van der Merwe grabbed a last-gasp try as Scotland celebrated a first win in Paris since 1999.

“We’re not going to get carried away, we’re going to enjoy this moment and start building towards something memorable,” said Scotland skipper Stuart Hogg whose side had star Finn Russell red carded late in the game.

“I’m the captain of a very, very proud nation and we’ll continue to work hard.”

Friday’s match had been rescheduled after a Covid-19 outbreak in the French camp caused a postponement in February.
