- France lost their second game of this year’s Six Nations 32-26 to Scotland
- Les Bleus were punished for poor discipline as Greig Laidlaw kicked six penalties
- France captain Guilhem Guirado is fearful his side could get the wooden spoon
- Guirado said: ‘As long as we don’t show more discipline, we won’t win a match’
France made a good start with wing Teddy Thomas scoring two splendid tries and led by six points at half time, but were sanctioned numerous times after the break, Greig Laidlaw slotting home the six penalties he attempted for Scotland.
Les Bleus lost 15-13 to Ireland in last weekend’s opener where they also paid dearly for their lack of discipline.
‘It was worse this time,’ said Guirado. ‘As long as we don’t show more discipline, we won’t win a match. But to be disciplined you have to be confident.’
France have not won in their last eight outings.
‘We must respect the rules otherwise we won’t make it,’ added Guirado. ‘We’re always under tremendous pressure and after two defeats in a row the game against Italy will be more than welcome to bounce back.’
France are fifth in the standings with two points with their next opponents Italy on zero after they also lost their first two games.
‘The championship is not over yet but we must stop losing games like this,’ said Guirado.
‘We gave away too many points,’ added fly-half Lionel Beauxis.
