Here's how the Irish players rated in their win at BT Murrayfield on Sunday.

Hugo Keenan: Outshone by the other two members of the back three but still played his part in his team’s steady assumption of dominance. 8 out of 10

Mack Hansen: The right winger was named man of the match after a fine attacking performance that saw him score his team’s first try and play a vital role in the two that followed. 9

Garry Ringrose: Was a vital cog in the Irish back line on both sides of the ball before being stretchered off inside the final ten minutes. 8

Bundee Aki: Worked energetically as usual in midfield and came close to scoring late in first half. 8

James Lowe: Took his try well, was always a threat to the Scots defence, and put in a try-saving tackle on Van der Merwe. 9

Johnny Sexton: Chipped in with seven points and coolly conducted proceedings as Ireland dictated the tempo of the second half. 8

Conor Murray: Worked well with his pack and with Sexton before giving way to Gibson-Park 15 minutes into second half. 8

Andrew Porter: Stayed on for the full 80 and ended up with a distinct advantage in the set piece. 8

Dan Sheehan: Denied an early try on a technicality, then departed early through injury. 6

Tadhg Furlong: Lasted the pace well on his return to the team, playing a big role in the Irish scrum that steadily got on top of Scotland. 8

Iain Henderson: Injury ended his afternoon with just 25 minutes on the clock. 5

James Ryan: Impressive in the loose as well in the set piece, the lock seemed to be on the verge of scoring Ireland’s fourth try before being tackled short - then losing the ball forward in his attempt to keep the move alive. 8

Peter O’Mahony: In an exhausting match, the blindside lasted the pace better than almost anyone else, showing up well late in the game with some telling tackles. 8

Josh van der Flier: The reigning world player of the year was a little quiet by his usual standards but still had an impressive game - above all when he took over the throwing-in duties at the lineout. 8

Caelan Doris: Was the first Ireland player to be forced off by injury in a bruisingly physical first half, leaving the field after 13 minutes. 5

Best of the rest

Jack Conan: Came on for Doris, scored his team’s crucial third try and also contributed significantly to Ireland’s winning superiority in the battle of the breakdown. 7

Jamison Gibson-Park: Came on at scrum-half early in the second half and injected new life and ideas into the attack. 7
