Rugby-Lopez kicks France to 22-16 win against Scotland

PARIS, Feb 12 (Reuters) - France relied on the boot of Camille Lopez as they laboured to a 22-16 home win against Scotland in the Six Nations on Sunday.

Fly-half Lopez kicked five penalties and converted Gael Fickou's try while Scotland's points came from tries by Stuart Hogg and Tim Swinson and a couple of Finn Russell penalties.

The visitors' hopes of a first win in Paris since 1999 were undermined when they lost scrum-half Greig Laidlaw to an injury in the first half.

France are in fourth place with five points from two games, ahead of Scotland who bagged a bonus point for losing by less than seven points.

France next travel to Ireland and Scotland will take on Wales. (Reporting by Julien Pretot; Editing by Martyn Herman)
