Scotland suffer Wilson injury blow after Ireland 6 Nations defeat

Gregor Townsend's team had high hopes of making a push for the title this year but Saturday's Murrayfield defeat to Ireland has put them on the back foot.

Swashbuckling and incisive in the first half - especially when star fly-half Finn Russell intercepted, burst clear and superbly set up Sam Johnson for a galvanizing try - Scotland lost composure after the break, and a series of unforced errors and penalties gave Ireland the initiative.

"We can be better, we can play more rugby, and I'm sure Joe will touch on that when we meet up again". It seemed a key moment to the scribblers in the press box but Scotland skipper Greig Laidlaw was not convinced. 'I thought we won those battles and our contact work against a very good defence, who will look to hold you up in the tackle, rip the ball or compete for the ball, was outstanding. Unlike in the first half, the Scots couldn't get a foothold in the Irish 22 or sustain an attack.

"I think we just muscled our way through it to be honest".

In the adjoining Haridwar district, the death toll had risen to 28 from 12 on Friday, Indian broadcaster NDTV reported. Around 1,066 liters of hooch have been seized during the raid and over 50 people detained in state, reports said.

Conor Murray, Jacob Stockdale and Keith Earls all crossed as Ireland returned to winning ways a week on from their physical besting in the 32-20 defeat by England in Dublin.

"I felt we dominated that first half, a lot of that was through how we defended as well as how we attacked - it's a message for our players that we can play at that level and create more opportunities".

Scotland began brightly and got the scoreboard moving first, but they helped Ireland into the game and put themselves needlessly under pressure with their first pair of very bad defensive blunders.

France didn't have an answer to England, and it wasn't clear if they were even looking for one, but they are at their most compelling when the game loses its structure, and they will have watched Scotland's error-strewn performance against Ireland with great interest. It's frustrating as you love going up against the best teams in the world, and we get close, but come up just short.

"We just lacked a bit of energy last week".

Scotland return to Six Nations action on February 23. when they travel to Paris to face France. "We trust the players to come off the bench and step up as Joey did". 'We'll see what will happen over the next few days.
