France keeps same squad for match versus Scotland

Updated: February 14, 2012, 12:17


PARIS(AP) The France squad frustrated by the postponement of its match against Ireland last weekend will have another chance against Scotland at Murrayfield next week as coach Philippe Saint-Andre made no changes on Tuesday.

A favorite for the Six Nations title, France relied on the backbone of the team that reached the World Cup final last year to open its campaign with a 30-12 win over Italy.

Saint-Andre retained scrumhalf Julien Dupuy after Dimitri Yachvili picked up a back injury. Yachvili has not recovered yet.

Saturday's match between France and Ireland was postponed because of a frozen pitch.

Scotland lost to England and Wales in its first two matches.
