However, Irish-based Australian coach Williams was quick to criticise Ireland's display, nowhere near the level that saw Schmidt's side topple the All Blacks 16-9 a year ago.

RYAN WILSON will take no further part in Scotland's Six Nations campaign after sustaining knee ligament damage during the first half of the national team's defeat to Ireland at Murrayfield on Saturday.

Scotland finally forced some possession in the Irish 22 but Ireland willingly surrendered a soft penalty, and Laidlaw brought Scotland back to six points behind.

Kinghorn's pace running the ball back gave Scotland a little lift but it needed opportunism from Russell to get them back in the game on the half-hour.

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'm so proud of the players, with the way they played and the effort they put in.

However, it was the Irish who emerged victorious in the second half after another intense 40 minutes of rugby with points harder to come by for both teams.

"Our contact work against a very good defense was outstanding; just that final piece, the execution of set-piece, which has been really good, that fell off the jigsaw today".

I favored Davis to win, but a draw is fair since it was a great fight and could possibly headline a Mayweather Promotions card in Sam's Town in Las Vegas, Nevada.

"We have a lot of belief", said Ireland skipper Rory Best. Poite did seem rather reluctant to punish Ireland at times, with Schmidt's men using all their experience to close the game out.

"We'll go back to the pressure we put on and the coaches put on us". We're always going to err on the side of caution with those because we want to look after people.

"The first half showed how good we can be".

"He's very sore", said Scotland coach Gregor Townsend.

Ireland's hard-fought 22-13 win over Scotland in the Six Nations on Saturday lent weight to the suggestion that Japan should target the Scots when the three sides battle to progress from Pool A at the Rugby World Cup later this year.

In Italy, Wales - who beat France in their opening match - dominated possession but scored only two tries in a performance that is unlikely to have caused too many concerns for their next opponents England. We conceded the try a minute after that and lost one of our best players'.
