Ireland revive Six Nations campaign with 22-13 win over Scotland

Ireland revive Six Nations campaign with 22-13 win over Scotland”

The Glasgow Warriors back-rower suffered knee ligament damage during Saturday's loss to Ireland and he will return to the care of his club's medical team. 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.

"Joey is a quality player, you don't want to see anyone go off injured, but it's great to see everyone coming off the bench and stepping up", he said.

Scotland captain Greig Laidlaw admitted their second-half errors cost them the game, saying, "We released the pressure valve".

Carbery nearly gave Scotland its only try from an intercept, but he created the only try in the second half and kicked a penalty to deny the Scots even a losing bonus point at home.

Ireland lost Johnny Sexton to injury in the first half yet still had too much for Scotland, with Conor Murray, Jacob Stockdale and Keith Earls going over to pull clear of the hosts.

Another stand-out performer for Scotland was Jamie Ritchie, pictured, who put in an huge back-row shift against Ireland's formidable breakdown specialists. We spoke a little bit about Ireland not getting the bonus point; the win is the most important thing for Ireland now. He was also relieved by the team's effort.

Hosts Japan know they will nearly certainly have to beat one of the European heavyweights to reach the quarterfinals by finishing in the top two of a group that also includes Russian Federation and Samoa.

"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".

"Sometimes it's just a genuine mistake", said Ritchie.

"Why did we have such a good first half and not play the same in the second half?"

Scotland, who beat Italy in their Six Nations opener, next face France in Paris on February 23. We launched off a line-out in the second half and Sean O'Brien reached the ball, ' explained Laidlaw.

"He wanted to stay on but his shoulder was not right". We could've scored a couple more tries.

"But if we hadn't won this game, we were definitely out of it".
