Ireland made it four wins from four in the pool stages of the Rugby World Cup last night with a comfortable win over Scotland in Paris.
The Irish ran in six tries as they overcame their Six Nations counterparts 36-14 at the Stade de France to set up a titanic clash with the All Blacks in the quarter-finals of the competition.
It was a complete and utter performance from the men in green who will feel confident heading into that game with New Zealand providing their injury concerns from that game aren’t too bad.
Think the match officials got this one right.
Verrrrrrrry close but looks like Keenan's studs don't go down onto the touchline, hover just over it. The mud from the studs does fall down onto the touchline.

Scotland were completely outplayed by Andy Farrell’s side but they were a little aggrieved when Hugo Keenan seemingly got away with having a foot in touch when he gathered the ball close to Ireland’s line.
But on closer inspection, it appears Keenan actually did incredibly well to lift the top of his boot and keep himself out of touch.
A remarkable bit of skill from Keenan under that kind of pressure to just keep himself in play.
