**Edinburgh flanker Jamie Ritchie paid tribute to the BT Murrayfield crowd after Scotland completed a famous victory over France to end their unbeaten Guinness Six Nations run.**\n\nLes Bleus came into the game as the only team still able to secure the Grand Slam but two tries from Sean Maitland following a red card for Mohamed Haouas ended their perfect record.\n\nRitchie’s Edinburgh teammate Stuart McInally also crossed while Glasgow Warriors’ Adam Hastings kicked 13 points, with France responding through Damien Penaud and Charles Ollivon.\n\nBut despite the visitors’ best efforts, Scotland made it back-to-back Championship wins as man-of-the-match Ritchie praised the crowd for their role in the 28-17 victory.\n\n“I’m absolutely delighted,” he said after the final whistle in Edinburgh. “Huge energy from the crowd and the boys played out of their skins. We love playing at home.\n\n“We wanted to do it for the fans and for ourselves. There's been a lot of chat around this tournament for ourselves and we knew we had the opportunity to win some games."\n\nOn the Haouas punch that earned the French prop a red card, he added: "I don’t know. It’s international rugby, tempers get heated sometimes, physical game and sometimes stuff happens.”\n\nRitchie was one of many heroes in white, registering a 100 per cent success rate from his 11 tackles while also making 16 metres on four carries in a towering performance.\n\nHastings gave Scotland a dream start with two penalties before France hit back with a try from Penaud but the turning point in the game arrived just before half-time.
