France to wear red against Scotland

Date published: February 5 2015

France will line up in a red change kit on Saturday for their Six Nations opener against Scotland in Paris.

Les Bleus have to change their kit for home games with the Scots, and usually wear a white change strip.

However this year they have decided to change their ‘away’ strip, with a new kit that will feature a red jersey, blue shorts and red socks.

It is not the first time they will have played in red, in 1958 they took on Australia while in a red kit, and they did it again the following year against the Scots.

They won both of those games, and will be hoping to extend that record against Scotland on Saturday.

Their last defeat to the Scots came in 2006, while in Paris the last Scottish victory dates back to 1999 and the final edition of the Five Nations.
