Rugby U


Howdy. @NiallHawthorne here to bring you all the build-up and action between Ireland and Scotland as the 6-Nations draws to a close.

We kick-off at 5pm. Ireland looking to scale the table to 3rd tonight. Scotland looking to stay 3rd themselves. Big stakes, eh?

You'll notice from the table that Wales have spanked the Italians earlier today, 67-14 the final score. The big bullies.

Major panic in Ireland after Joe Schmidt said that he will 'decide' if he stays on in the Ireland job after the summer tour. He's off then.

That's the equivalent of sending out your CV to your competitors, that comment. Back down under I reckon. *taps nose*

Schmidt v Cotter. Apprentice v Master. These two know each other very well. Like these two. Probably not lovers though. Allegedly.

Let's see how this game played out in recent years. 2014. Ireland 28-6 winners.

2012. Ireland 32-14.

2010. Ireland 20-23 Scotland.

Let's run through the teams then...makes sense I suppose.
