Determined Ireland batter Scots

Two tries from Sean O'Brien helped Ireland to a record-equalling victory over Scotland at Murrayfield that puts them firmly in the driving seat to win the Six Nations championship

Match Commentary

82'Tristan Barclay: Ireland have put themselves in pole position at Murrayfield this afternoon, but there is no celebration from their players as they calmly shake hands with their Scottish opponents. Looking over to the coaches' box, however, it's a different story. Smiles and pats on the back all round in there, with Joe Schmidt trying to keep a small grin off his face. Scotland look dejected. They've been whitewashed and capitulated in the second half when they really could have made life difficult to Ireland in an open game. Stuart Hogg and Blair Cowan, two bright sparks in the Scottish XV, are keeping their chins up but you can see the disappointment in their faces.
81'And he's missed it! As time expires, the score remains 40-10, equalling Ireland's biggest ever win at Murrayfield, and on the famous ground's 90th birthday too. It means Wales cannot win the Six Nations title, but England still can - but only IF they manage to beat France by a whopping 27 points.
