Finn Russell was among the thousands of Scottish fans at Murrayfield who believed that Scotland had done enough to secure a last-minute victory over France. Scotland had been leading since the seventh minute, but when Sam Skinner made a final push for the try line, the referee ruled that the ball had been held up. This decision forced the television match official to review the footage, which ultimately proved inconclusive. Russell expressed his belief that it should have been a try, but acknowledged that it was the referee's decision to make. France, on the other hand, felt that the ruling was correct. Gregory Alldritt, the French captain, stated that he couldn't imagine it being a try. Scotland now needs to regroup and prepare for their upcoming match against England. Head coach Gregor Townsend expressed his frustration with the decision and highlighted that this was the second consecutive week that Scotland had been denied a last-minute try due to inconclusive evidence. The team will use this loss as a learning experience and aim to perform better in future matches.
