Wales experienced the most dramatic Six Nations off the field but if they can finish with a win France In Paris, then it will turn a horror show on the field into something more acceptable.

Amidst all the drama of players being threatened before the England match, Wales endured a nightmare start. Warren GatlandThey had three defeats in a row, but their victory over Italy in Rome for the last time revived the Welsh fans.

France, the newly-destroyed England and world No. 2 side, is undoubtedly a big step forward, but Gatland’s troops will have plenty of motivation as many of their veterans play in what is supposed to be the last Six Nations game.

For their part, Les Bleus could still win the title – although last weekend’s defeat at Twickenham required an unexpected favor in Dublin by a still stunned England – but even if the trophy missed them, Fabien Galthie‘s men will be eager to head to their home World Cup this year, with four out of five wins in the championship.

And Scotland stole it!

More substitutions have arrived, with Scottish narrow head WP Nel and Italian back line Marco Zanon.

The ups and downs of Ben Healy fell into the hands of the Scots. Ali Price makes smart decisions twice, directing his box kicks to the touchline nicely, and the latter making contact.

Ali Price is on the run! A great Italian turnover at Scotland 22, but a loose dump allows the backup Scotland to grab the ball from the sky and rush out of danger.

Scotland 19-13 Italy, 68 minutes

With the hosts almost completely lost since Blair Kinghorn’s second score, Scotland needs to re-energize both themselves and the audience.

Now this could be a pivotal moment – the halftime pass, when Ben Healy makes his Scotland debut and is tasked with getting things right. Kinghorn continues with the replacement of Ollie Smith, moving to fullback.

Cameron Redpath takes over from Sione Tuipulotu at home headquarters.

Now then. For the first time in a long time, Italian horns are sounding in the stands and the home audience is still straight. To win Sione Tuipulotu’s turnover and penalty, Manuel Zuliani coyotes after midfielder pulls back to reclaim the ball.

TO TRY! Scotland 19-11 ITALY (Try Tommaso Allan, 63 minutes)

Italy has finally unlocked the Scottish defense! This has been wonderfully received by the playmaking partnerships, Tommaso Allan capitalizing on Paolo Garbisi’s exquisite dribbling passes.

After taking possession of the ball, Scotland found no contact and allowed Pierre Bruno and Simone Gesi to rush the ball back. Juan Ignacio Brex injects himself in the first receiver, allowing Garbisi and Allan to add width in the next phase of the model.

Garbisi takes his brother’s pass and throws the ball to his left foot, giving the weight of his little mallet perfectly, allowing Allan to take his footsteps without interrupting and to score from the left corner.

Allan’s transformation isn’t quite there.

Scotland 19-6 Italy, 61 minutes

That’s right, it’s time for Italy to experience that a little bit? Gioacomo Nicotera is still roaring, his line hitting his target, allowing his team to break into Scotland 22 and presenting himself as a carry-on twice.

That’s good – Juan Ignacio Brex gives a nice pass to center partner Luca Morisi in the line.

But there is in Scotland. A bold dump from Paolo Garbisi hits the raised limbs and is back in home hands.

A long period of ball-in-play ends when a tired Scottish striker goes offside and takes the breath everyone needs.
