A pivotal weekend in the Autumn Nations Cup concludes with Scotland vs France, a game that will likely determine the winner of Group B. It’s Les Tricolores’ first game of the tournament, but they currently lead the group after being handed a 28-0 bonus point victory over Fiji, who were unable to field a team because of a Covid-19 outbreak in the squad. It’s a huge match, so read on as our guide explains how to watch an Autumn Nations Cup Scotland vs France live stream – including for FREE in many places!

Scotland’s opener was perhaps a little more thrilling than Gregor Townsend had bargained for, a 28-17 comeback victory over an Italy side that for large spells looked completely transformed from the one that ended the Six Nations without a single point to their name.
It ended as Scotland’s fifth win in a row, but one that looked far from likely at the midway point when they trailed 11-7 – a score line that perhaps didn’t do Italy’s early dominance justice. But a half-time dressing down from Townsend, combined with a major slice of fortune that saw Zander Fagerson cross the line unopposed, turned the game on its head.
They’ll need to be on it from the start against a well-rested France team that came so close in the Six Nations. The Group B favourites’ only defeat in the Six Nations came against Scotland at Murrayfield, a match that flipped on Mohamed Haouas’ first-half red card, dished out after the prop punched Jamie Ritchie. That was swiftly followed by a Sean Maitland try.
This should be a brilliant game, so follow our guide as we explain all the ways to get a Scotland vs France live stream – including how to watch the Autumn Nations Cup for FREE in the UK.
How to watch a Scotland vs France live stream from outside your country
If you’re outside your country of residence – whether that be the UK or anywhere else – and try to start streaming the rugby via your native broadcaster, you’ll soon discover that you can’t as it is location-restricted. But there’s a way you can watch anyway.
By downloading and installing a VPN, you can effectively trick your computer into thinking that it’s back at home.
