Six Nations: Ireland remain perfect with victory over Scotland, eye Grand Slam

Wingers Mack Hansen and James Lowe have scored a try each for Ireland, as first-five Johnny Sexton became the joint leading scorer in Six Nations history in a pulsating 22-7 victory over Scotland at Murrayfield.

Replacement No.8 Jack Conan scored Ireland's third try, as they turned up the heat in the second half, despite the loss of both hookers to injury, leading to flanker Josh van der Flier throwing in at the lineout and three props in the front row of the scrum.

Scotland were in the game at halftime, trailing 8-7, after a try through centre Huw Jones, which will give them confidence heading into the Rugby World Cup, where they face Ireland and South Africa in their pool, with only two teams to advance to the quarter-finals.

Ireland, who have claimed the Triple Crown and have their sights now set on a Grand Slam, lead the Six Nations table with 19 points from four games, four ahead of second-placed France.

They host England in their final game next weekend, while Scotland welcome Italy.
