  • Description

    SCOTLAND TODAY, (SATURDAY), DEFEATED IRELAND IN THEIR RUGBY UNION INTERNATIONAL IN DUBLIN, PUTTING AN END TO IRISH HOPES FOR THIS YEAR'S TRIPLE CROWN. THE SCOTTISH FIFTEEN, THE UNDERDOGS BEFORE THE KICK-OFF, WON 6 POINTS TO THREE.

    POINTS FOR BOTH SIDES CAME FROM PENALTY GOALS AND SCOTLAND LED SIX POINTS TO NIL AT HALF TIME.

    IT WAS A FAST OPEN MATCH FOR MOST OF THE GAME AND IRELAND, FRESH FROM THEIR OVERWHELMING VICTORY OVER ENGLAND, WERE EXPECTED TO RUN OUT EASY WINNERS. HOWEVER THE UNPREDICTABLE SCOTS, THE ONLY SIDE TO HOLD THE ALL BLACKS DURING THEIR RECENT TOUR PROVED TO BE MATCH FOR THE IRISH IN ALL DEPARTMENTS.

    SCOTLAND'S POINTS WERE SCORED BY FULL-BACK WILSON DURING THE FIRST HALF, WHILE IRELAND'S FULL-BACK, KEIRNAN, SCORED HIS TEAM'S ONLY POINTS 5 MINUTES AFTER THE START OF THE SECOND HALF.

    UNTIL TODAY'S DEFEAT, IRELAND WERE THE ONLY SIDE IN THE INTERNATIONAL COMPETITION WITH A CHANCE OF WINNING THE TRIPLE CROWN - VICTORY IN ANY ONE SEASON OVER ENGLAND, SCOTLAND AND WALES.
