Tempers have boiled over early in the second half between Ireland and Scotland following an incident sparked by Ollie Smith on Johhny Sexton.
Smith left his leg out during a break in play, tripping Sexton who did not take too kindly to the actions of the Scottish replacement.
A mass brawl then broke out between the players, with Scotland prop Pierre Schoeman sending Dan Sheehan flying over the advertising hoardings.
Schoeman escaped punishment with the referee deciding to sin-bin Smith for starting the ruckus. But Sheehan has the last laugh, dotting down in the corner just minutes later for Ireland’s fifth try to give them a 31-0 at the time of writing.

"I have a serious issue with what he did there!"
Ollie Smith has been shown a yellow card for tripping Johnny Sexton. But Alan Quinlan thinks Pierre Schoeman should have been punished for shoving Dan Sheehan over the hoardings in the melee afterwards.#IREvSCO | #RWC2023 pic.twitter.com/BHk1hLXjkR
