Scots roar to victory over Irish

Scotland's Matthew Scott and Kelly Brown celebrate their 12-8 victory over Ireland after staging a remarkable recovery at Murrayfield.

The country's Six Nations Championship dream survived despite a woeful performance before the break. On paper, it was a miraculous victory for Scotland after a dismal first-half during which Ireland had 78% of possession and 80% of territory. Four Greig Laidlaw penalties secured the win. The result signals Scotland's first back-to-back victory in the Six Nations since 2001 after their record win over Italy last week.
