Paris - France coach Jacques Brunel has stayed loyal to the same squad of players for the Six Nations clash with Scotland on February 23 despite two defeats in a row in the tournament.

Brunel faced a storm of criticsm of his selections and style of play from former internationals including Olivier Magne and Dimitri Yachvili following the bruising 44-8 loss to England last weekend, but has refused to make changes for the match at the Stade de France.
