Watch that INCREDIBLE length-of-the-field France try

France scored a try for the ages in their 30-17 Six Nations Under-20s win over Scotland at the DAM Health Stadium in Edinburgh, showcasing their excellent attacking threat.

Just four minutes earlier, they had received a red card to winger Jefferson Joseph, but despite being a man down, they went the length of the field and scored a truly incredible try.

France had the put-in at the scrum, and Theo Ntamack picked the ball off the back off the scrum, stepping up to fly-half Christian Townsend and offloading to centre Louis Le Brun.

The centre then passed to his midfield partner Emilien Gailleton, who exchanged passes with winger Enzo Reybier.

Another offload came, this time passing to fly-half Emile Dayral, who hacked through while being tackled just outside the 22.

The kick bounced into the path of flanker Esteban Capilla, who picked it up excellently to finish off a memorable score and set the game alight.

France went on to score three more quality tries as they secured a bonus-point victory and a return to winning ways after suffering defeat to Ireland in Round 2.
