Seymour expects Scots to cope without Russell

Scotland winger Tommy Seymour has admitted the loss of fly-half Finn Russell is a blow but feels his side will be able to cope without the playmaker against France.

The Scots head to the Stade de France on Saturday looking for their first win in the French capital since 1999.

Head coach Gregor Townsend will have to do without Russell, after the Racing 92 star suffered a concussion last weekend playing in the Top 14.

Seymour has admitted another injury blow is a setback but has back the Scots to go and get a result against Les Bleus.

"We won't be changing massively the things we'll be looking to do based on one injury," said Seymour.

"We've got a style of play we want to adhere to. Finn has been playing really well and it's a shame, but these guys are fully capable of executing the game plan.

"We've been focusing on the game and these guys have all got the experience and slot naturally into their position. We've just faced this week as we would any other and just dealt with what we've been dealt."

Scotland are 2/1 to win and 2/5 to lose to the French in Saturday's Six Nations showdown.
