The history of rugby union matches between France and Scotland dates back to 1910 when the two teams played against each other in Edinburgh. Scotland won the match 27 – 0. Since then there have been a total of 87 games played resulting in, 50 wins for France and 34 wins for Scotland and 3 draws, as of March 2014.

During rugby union's amateur era the overall history of the fixture was relatively even - up to the end of the 1995 Rugby World Cup the sides had met 67 times with France winning 33 games and Scotland 31. Since then there has been a marked shift in favour of France, who have won 17 of the 20 matches between the teams since 1996.

Scotland and France play each other at least once a year, as both have been in the Six Nations Championship, and its predecessor competitions.
