One ding-dong win in Rome and suddenly everything seems rosy enough in the Scottish garden for them to be 5-6 favourites to beat France for a first time in ten years and for the previous nine straight Six Nations game defeats to be glossed over.
Scotland are looking solid at the set-piece and are getting quick ball at the breakdown while Les Bleus have looked disjointed when somehow beating Italy and Ireland in Paris and getting closed down in defeat to Wales in Cardiff.
But France coach Guy Noves keeps promising to bring back traditional Gallic flair and Scotland's defence keeps conceding tries for all their attacking improvements under Vern Cotter in the last year.
Noves certainly knew how to get a tune out of Toulouse, his pack baredsome teeth in their rolling maul against Wales a fortnight ago and he can call upon Fofana for a first time this tournament. A perfect afternoon for running rugby is forecast for Edinburgh too.
However, recent meetings between the countries have predominantly been relatively low-scoring so while bets on four or more tries and over 38.5 points at 5-6 are tempting, they are passed over for Fofana and Seymour tries at 11-4.
Both men are playing on the Right Wing but will not simply wait for the ball to get to them. Seymour has the power of an Inside Centre and loves to make angled support runs. Fofana, now over a leg injury, has played most of his internationals in the midfield and has a ghosting side-step and instant acceleration.
Seymour has a sensational scoring record of 13 tries in 25 Tests given Scotland's struggles including two in three outings against France and tries in the last two rounds against Wales and Italy.
Fofana also has 13 Test tries - but in 39 matches - and has crossed twice in four meetings with Scotland.
