Harris’
converted second half try gaveScotlandtheir first win in six
Tests as they beatFrance 17-14in a Rugby World Cup warm-up Test at
Murrayfield on Saturday.

Harris’s effort and one from Sean Maitland at the end of the
first-half – also converted by Greig Laidlaw – helped the hosts win
from behind and bounce back from the humiliating 32-3 thrashing by Les
Bleus last weekend.

Pleasing for head coach Gregor Townsend – who made 14 changes to the
starting XV from the first match – was they held the French scoreless
in the second-half.  Worryingly he lost three players to injuries in
Tommy Seymour, Sam Skinner and Blade Thomson on his debut. 

France, like last weekend, scored early on with Clermont wing
Damian Penaud dotting down after 110 seconds, repeating club team-mate,
Alivereti Raka’s feat in Nice. 

“It was a great opportunity for us after last weekend and winning makes it all the sweeter,” Scotland captain Laidlaw said.

“We never started well but we dug in deep and had trust in the group.
Our defence went a long way to winning the game – and international
rugby is all about winning,” he added.
