Ireland have their first win of the 2019 Six Nations as they beat Scotland 13-22 at Murrayfield.

Tries from Conor Murray, Jacob Stockdale and Keith Earls cancelled out Sam Johnson’s early try for Scotland as Ireland bounced back from their disappointing defeat to England last week.

The champions went behind early after a Greig Laidlaw penalty but Conor Murray capitalised on a mistake in Scotland’s own 22 to take the visitors into the lead.

Just 5 minutes later, winger Jacob Stockdale found a gap in the defence after a smart pass by Johnny Sexton to score under the posts.

Despite being behind, Scotland continued to enjoy large spells of possession, eventually resulting in a try for Sam Johnson after a clean break by Finn Russell allowed him to make a smart offload for Johnson.

Just short of the hour mark the defence was split again with Keith Earls crossing the whitewash. Scotland failed to get back into the game and Ireland saw it out, moving up to 4th in the table after failing to secure a bonus point.
