The French loss was a huge surprise for everyone but I could feel something may happen.
I am always wary of tournament openers, when most teams are fresh.
We received a huge lesson in humility but I was very surprised by the weaknesses that we showed. We looked unable to come back into the match or change tactics.
The Scots ate us up, they really impressed me. For a long time Scotland have been considered a weak side but they proved the contrary at the weekend.
They have great players who were well prepared, and the stadium was pushing them.
They were very strong physically up front and very inspired at the back. They certainly deserved their victory.
Now the key for France is going to be to bounce back as soon as possible against the Irish and in the best possible manner.
What we showed at the weekend was typical of the latin teams, we are capable of exceptional performances but also of the worst. We are far from the anglo-saxon rigour and seriousness.
The team is now probably crippled by doubts, I have myself experienced similar experiences when I was playing with France.
The pressure is also going to be higher on Les Bleus ahead of the World Cup because they have showed their weaknesses to the whole world of rugby.
Ahead of Ireland, Bernard Laporte and Jo Maso have recalled a few players who have not played much in recent months while Nicolas Brusque and Julien Bonnaire are doubts.
But he will certainly have to put in place a better organisation, a solid defence and a sound combative streak in attack.
The French need to show a positive reaction to the setback and re-focus.
It's probably better such a disappointment takes place now instead of next year's RBS 6 Nations tournament or worse, in the first phase of the World Cup.
This will be a chance for us to welcome Ireland and England at home, which will be great opportunities to bounce back.
And even against Italy we will have to be careful and concentrated.
