Match Commentary

81'+135-25 End of second half
80'Jamie Heaslip named man of the match and he's a winner today as Pascal Gauzere blows for fulltime. It was entertaining at times, but more often that not those inside the Aviva Stadium witnessed a sluggish afternoon of mistake-ridden rugby.

ESPN's Rob Bartlett has this to say from Dublin:

Scotland came to Dublin as the least penalised side in the tournament: how ironic that two timely yellow cards sparked their downfall at the Aviva Stadium. Conor Murray and Richie Gray both traded second-half tries before Scotland became unhinged. With his side piling on the pressure, Alex Dunbar's moment of madness turned the second half on its head -- quite literally. The centre flipped Johnny Sexton over at the ruck and was rightfully sin-binned -- he could have seen red -- and Ireland took full advantage in that time before losing their fly-half for the final 10 minutes. It was a heated battle which, between beautiful passages of free-flowing rugby, boiled over numerous times. Just the amount of fire needed for Ireland before a tough tour to South Africa.
