Ireland team named for Scotland clash

May JohnsonFeb 12, 2019

Greig Laidlaw took a swipe at referee Romain Poite after Scotland's Six Nations defeat to Ireland at Murrayfield on Saturday.

Ireland are certainly that, they've proved that. Conditions are forecast to be similarly blustery or even worse today.

Schmidt was phlegmatic on Scotland targeting Sexton, replying: "It was going to happen, and Johnny probably knew he was only going to play 20 minutes so tried to cram it all into one quarter!"

"He is up against not only the best stand-off in the world but the best player in the world (Sexton), a key man for a team that has a number of key men".

"It does make it hard". Passing, kicking, everything becomes harder.

Unlike in the first half, the Scots couldn't get a foothold in the Irish 22 or sustain an attack.

That ability to switch to Plan B - something that both teams today have been accused of struggling to do - is a sign of maturity in the Scottish team, especially 12 months off from their loss in Dublin previous year.

The Clermont Auvergne scrum-half said: "I think it's good for us being at home when the weather is like this". O'Mahony gave the ball to Sexton on the switch, and Stockdale timed his run to slip through a gap beside the ruck to perfection.

It's not a surprise that Toronto made a move because Philly added Tobias Harris and Milwaukee added Nikola Mirotic . Toronto played short-handed due to the trades Thursday night but still pulled out a 119-101 win over the Hawks.

"That was a really tough game, and it was tough mentally in the build-up to it".

"I don't think he's adverse to being attacking or attack-minded". He was also relieved by the team's effort.

Ireland captain Rory Best will win his 115th cap at Murrayfield despite concerns over the veteran hooker's line-out throwing against England.

"The way tickets have gone again for this game and the 6 Nations are a reflection of how the team's been playing". Grieg Laidlaw converted and Scotland trailed 12-10 with more than 10 minutes to halftime.

After the break, their focus and commitment dropped and they looked very much on the back foot with just 33 per cent possession and 28 per cent territory. "We'll need to take a similar step this week because we've seen what England have done", he added. "The beast within you wants to put it right and that's what we have to go and do this week".

Ireland's Keith Earls scores their third try during the the Six Nations rugby union worldwide match between Scotland and Ireland at Murrayfield, Edinburgh, Scotland, Saturday Feb. 9, 2019. "We can't be chasing things and trying to get instant results". With Stuart Hogg, when a player has kicked the ball you have to get out of his way and not make a tackle. "We've got a lot of improving to do".
