Fear in Scotland for the captain of the France team.
Grégory Alldritt was evacuated on a stretcher in the 50th minute of the Scotland-France match this Saturday afternoon on the pitch at Murrayfield, in Edinburgh.
Victim of a muscular clearing after a scratched ball, the third row of La Rochelle was hit in the left leg, around the knee.
According to information from France 2, he was the victim of a “large cut” above the knee.
The face of the captain of the Blues was already reassuring when he left.

Best tackler in the match (14 successful, 1 missed) before this injury, the Frenchman with Scottish origins kept his team alive during this second match of the Six Nations Tournament.
Fabien Galthié's players were trailing 13-10 at the time of his injury.
Still according to France 2, the question was whether Alldritt could have his wound stitched up on site or if he would have to go to the hospital.
