France too strong for Scotland in Summer Series

Scotland's Under-20 women were beaten 69-10 by France in their second outing of the Six Nations Summer Series in Parma.

The Scots suffered early injury setbacks, with Chloe Brown and Ellie Willamson both forced off, but grabbed the lead with a Gemma Bell try converted by Lucy MacRae.

France roared back and crossed four times for a 26-7 half-time lead.

A MacRae penalty reduced the arrears but Les Bleus added a further seven tries, with five of them coming after Scotland had been reduced to 14 players by an injury to Eilidh Fleming.

Claire Cruikshank's side, who lost their opening game to Italy, wrap up the tournament against Ireland on Sunday.
