Peter O’Mahony responds to Scotland brawl with some feisty words

Not tonight.

Ireland made light work of Scotland this evening in a convincing 36-14 win despite talk all week that the game could be a potential banana skin for the men in green.

Andy Farrell’s side completely dominated their Six Nations counterparts, taking a 36-0 lead on the hour mark before Scotland made the scoreline look a little better with two quick-fire tries.

The Scots struggled to get past Ireland in defence and were dismantled in attack, resulting in some frustrations early on in the second half, with replacement Ollie Smith needlessly tripping Johnny Sexton during a break in play.

The incident sparked a mass brawl on the pitch with Ireland’s Dan Sheehan getting thrown over the advertising hoardings by Scotland prop Pierre Schoeman in some crazy scenes.

Peter O’Mahony was in the very thick of it and was asked about the incident after to game. His response was interesting to say the very least, with the Ireland flanker rubbing salt in Scotland’s wounds with some feisty words in victory.

“That’s part and parcel of rugby. It’s a physical game,” O’Mahony said.

“They [Scotland] were in the press beforehand saying they were gonna knock us off our winning streak, and how they’d figured us out and worked us out.”

“I don’t think they did tonight.”

Feisty stuff to say the least! Up next for Ireland is a quarter-final meeting with New Zealand in Paris.
