Another Bonus-Point Win For Ireland As They Dispatch Of Scotland At The Aviva

The Grand Slam awaits…

Ireland have one hand on this year’s Six Nations championship trophy, thanks to a hugely impressive bonus-point over Scotland at the Aviva Stadium in Dublin this afternoon.

The Scots took an early lead through the boot of Greig Laidlaw, despite some early pressure from Ireland. But things soon changed as Jacob Stockdale intercepted a poor Scotland pass to coast under the posts.

Stockdale then pounced again in the last play before the break, to make it six tries in the championship so far, a new Irish record. 

The second-half was much of the same. Tries from Conor Murray and replacement Sean Cronin secured the bonus-point. Perhaps the scoreline flattered the Irish a little bit, but they were always in control.

Four wins from four.

Ten points clear at the top of the championship.

Not a bad day at the office.
