Scotland urged to move past controversial defeat and focus on Six Nations opportunities

Posted : 14 February 2024

Former Scotland flyhalf, Craig Chalmers, has advised the national team not to let frustration and anger consume them after the controversial Six Nations defeat to France. The match ended in a 20-16 victory for France after the referee and TMO decided there was insufficient evidence to award Scotland a potential match-winning try in the last play.


Chalmers expressed disbelief at the decision and emphasized the need for the team to move past the disappointment. While the Scottish Rugby Union has written to World Rugby seeking acknowledgment of the officials' mistake, Chalmers stressed the importance of focusing on future opportunities.


Chalmers highlighted instances where Scotland could have opted for penalty kicks rather than going for tries against France. He suggested that taking points when available, especially when the opponent is missing key players, is crucial at the international level.


Despite the setback, Chalmers encouraged the team to shift their focus to the upcoming match against England. With a strong recent record against England, he expressed confidence in Scotland's ability to secure a victory in the Calcutta Cup and continue their pursuit of a Triple Crown and Six Nations Championship.


As the Six Nations resumes after a rest week, Chalmers urged the players and coaches to overcome the frustration and concentrate on the opportunities ahead, emphasizing the positive history against England in recent years.
