Scotland beat Ireland in Rugby World Cup Friendly
What great news to hear that Scotland beat Ireland this weekend in a World Cup friendly in Murrayfield. No matter how the Irish might go on about their second string team (yawn), the Scottish still showed some serious firepower to contend with Brian O’Driscoll and Geordan Murphy in the backline plus gave an evenly fought battle against one of the (arguably) better lineouts in world rugby consisting of Jerry Flannery, Paul O’Connell, Malcolm O’Kelly. Might be time for a little soul searching for Ireland and some serious celebrating for the Scots. Have they timed their peak to perfection?
