There were also only five teams involved in the tournament. "He created the opportunity for us to get the first try as well with a nice chip ahead".

"It wasn't the most spectacular game of rugby that there ever was but we are very grateful for the win".

A host of pundits accused Ireland of lacking a Plan B in the wake of last weekend's 32-20 physical battering at the hands of England.

Meanwhile, Scottish hooker Stuart McInally was more gracious in defeat praising the Irish for their resolute defence. "We couldn't really build any pressure in the second half, because we just kept turning over possession".

"Ireland are a good enough team to turn things round, look at where they went wrong and rectify that", said Pountney. And we try to vary our defensive game.

It was back to winning ways for Ireland who overcame the loss of Johnny Sexton to injury in the first half to beat Scotland at Murrayfield.

Best said: "We have a lot of belief in what we are doing and how good a team we are".

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

"We were hammering their line just before half-time - that was key, the fact we didn't get anything".

"Certainly that has been the case in some of the plays we have used and they have played since!" They rallied and defiantly worked their way back into the contest but the defending Guinness Six Nations champions ultimately proved too strong for their first win this year.

Former Scotland captain Budge Pountney says Ireland will be "a different animal" in Saturday's Six Nations game against the Scots at Murrayfield.

"We gave Ireland a set-piece and they were able to exit their half".

"Joey Carbery has flourished since moving to Munster and starting regularly", said Best. It probably wasn't discussed by the TMO because that comes through to us.

Schmidt confirmed to the BBC that Sexton had failed a HIA but expects him to recover quickly.

After receiving treatment, Sexton then shanked his conversion wide.

Johnny Sexton suffered a head injury leaving Joey Carbery to run the game for nearly an hour: the Munster star threw an intercept pass for Sam Johnson's try for Scotland, but conjured the winning score for Earls.
