Ireland have beaten Scotland 28-8 at the Aviva Stadium, taking a huge step towards securing the Six Nations title by this evening.
Jacob Stockdale went over for two tries in the first half, with Conor Murray and Sean Cronin adding two more tries in the second half, to secure the bonus point.
Scotland’s try came from Blair Kinghorn in the second half. Scotland wasted a mountain of opportunities and Ireland were mechanical by comparison.
Ireland will now claim their third title in five years, if England fail to claim a bonus point victory away to France this evening.
Coach Joe Schmidt had this to say of the match,
‘I think it’s a one-score game to be honest. We got a bit lucky. They butchered a few tries. I thought we missed a few opportunities as well’
