Two minutes later Ireland scored their first try and took a lead they were not to lose. He was hailed down by the retreating Keith Earls but smartly popped a pass for Johnson to run in for the try, Laidlaw converting.

First blood went to the hosts via a Greig Laidlaw penalty. 'I'm so proud of the players, with the way they played and the effort they put in.

Rory Best praised Ireland for their reaction to defeat against England in Saturday's beating of Scotland, although he acknowledges they still must improve.

"I felt we dominated that first half, a lot of that was through how we defended as well as how we attacked - it's a message for our players that we can play at that level and create more opportunities". Obviously, it wouldn't have done much for his confidence [conceding the try to Scotland] but to bounce back like that showed great resilience. "We would have to do something pretty special for that to happen", he said. Scotland also lost three throw-ins.

The stand-off spotted Ireland's set move and intercepted a pass from Sexton's replacement Joey Carbery before racing off for the Irish line. Like Japan will need to be at the World Cup, Scotland had to be smarter, more creative and faster - and in the first half it looked like they were well on their way. Ireland just took a grip of that game, raised the stakes. Scottish hooker Stuart McInally denied his team was demoralized to still go in behind, but admitted they were "knackered" in the second half.

Scotland began brightly and got the scoreboard moving first, but they helped Ireland into the game and put themselves needlessly under pressure with their first pair of very bad defensive blunders. Russell asked. "What changed?" "We are frustrated and disappointed". They restricted Scotland to an interception try and conjured two of their own, the second coming from Schmidt's set-piece playbook that saw Jonathan Sexton, in virtually the fly-half's final act before leaving the field with ankle and head injuries, committing the defence and freeing the wing Jacob Stockdale on halfway.
