World News – UK – Antoine Dupont is the cornerstone of France


. .

Scotland will not be afraid of the French threat this afternoon. The home team have been robbed by both Finn Russell and Adam Hastings, but earlier this week France lost the services of their own highly rated flying half Romain Ntamack.

It’s a shame for neutrals enjoying the moments of rare European flair that Ntamack brings to test rugby, but Scotland to Duncan Weir – their own third choice – isn’t exactly going to be awash in sympathy.

The Toulouse combo of Antoine Dupont and Ntamack tore the teams apart. At times against Ireland, their relationship bordered on symbiosis – a partnership to shed light on dark times.
