Ireland team vs Scotland, Six Nations 2019: The starting XV

Ireland team vs Scotland, Six Nations 2019: The starting XV

"He doesn't seem to like us, Romain. We look at ourselves and credit to Ireland".

Poite is also a familiar referee for southern hemisphere teams and Springbok fans will remember him for controversially sending off hooker Bismarck du Plessis against the All Blacks in 2013.

"He then copped a stamp".

The Belvedere man says he understands worldwide rugby is very different from the club game but thinks Schmidt's Ireland side need more variations in the opposing 22'.

"So I'm not sure how they summarise Plan A, because I think we have a very varied game. They took their opportunities". It was not the best of games but we spent 34% of the first half in our 22 yet restricted them to an intercept try.

Joe Schmidt hopes Johnny Sexton will shake off a head injury in time for Ireland's Guinness Six Nations trip to Italy.

The Scotland head coach, Gregor Townsend, said he knew where his captain was coming from, adding: "Greig was frustrated the ball did not come back quickly". Early in the second half, the replacement fly-half broke through the Scotland line and threw a huge, looping pass and found Keith Earls who widened the gap.

"That was a really tough game, and it was tough mentally in the build-up, but we asked for the physical reaction we didn't get last week and by and large we got that".

"We've obviously got a lot of improving to do as well but we had to wear them down, they're well-organised in defence and we knew they would be very risky in attack, and by and large we fronted up to our task as we had to".

Conor Murray, Stockdale and Earls all crossed for Ireland, with Carbery shrugging off an intercept pass that led to Sam Johnson's try to set up his Munster team-mate Earls for the victor.

"Joey Carbery has flourished since moving to Munster and starting regularly", said Best. It probably wasn't discussed by the TMO because that comes through to us.

The Former Connacht player says Schmidt's Ireland side are more reserved than the Leinster side the New Zealander coached from 2010-13.

This time the move was more down to Irish ingenuity rather than a Scottish mistake, with an apparently simple move in midfield being transformed by Sexton's sleight of hand.

Ireland led 12-3 in the first half when Johnny Sexton was forced off after a succession of hits after he had offloaded the ball.
