Dimitri Yachvili struck 16 points as France cruised to a comfortable 31-0 triumph over Scotland at Murrayfield to maintain their momentum at the top of the RBS 6 Nations Championship table.France will now head for a Grand Slam clash with England in Paris after comfortably disposing of Scotland.

The favourites made light work of their limited opponents as Olivier Magne and Yannick Jauzion, twice, crossed for tries at a subdued Murrayfield.Scotland barely threatened the French line as they finished scoreless at home for the first time in 26 years.The hosts started brightly but their fragile defence was swiftly undone in France's first real attack.The Scots further handicapped themselves when full-back Derrick Lee, on his return to the side, was sin-binned for tackling Yachvili in mid-air.But they somehow survived his 10-minute absence with some desperate defence, Thomas Lievremont held up inches from the Scottish line.However, Scotland head coach Matt Williams was left ever closer to the wooden spoon in his first Six Nations tournament with a daunting trip to Dublin on the horizon next weekend.
