Rugby World Cup 2023 LIVE: Ireland vs Scotland score and latest updates from Pool B decider after James Lowe try

‘Ridiculous’ – Scotland laugh off suggestion of collusion with Ireland

Ireland take on Scotland in a huge Rugby World Cup pool decider on Saturday evening, with Gregor Townsend’s Scots needing to win the match and deny the world No 1 side bonus points if they hope to progress to the quarter-finals.

Current Pool B leaders South Africa could go out of the tournament if Scotland beat Ireland with a bonus point and by a margin of 21 points or more, with Andy Farrell’s side also taking a try bonus point. Scotland would then top the pool on points difference, with the Six Nations grand slam winners joining them in the last eight due to their win over the Springboks.

That seems unlikely though and this fixture is probably an eliminator between both teams. If Ireland win, they go through as Pool winners while Scotland need to win by either a bonus point victory (and Ireland earning nothing) or a non-bonus point win provided the Irish do not finish within seven points to progress.

Ireland 5-0 Scotland

22 mins: More enforced changes as Hansen now heads down the tunnel for a head injury assessment. McCloskey replaces him temporarily.

Ireland 5-0 Scotland

Harry Latham-Coyle reporting from the Stade de France:

“That’s a real shame for Scotland, Jamie Ritchie and the game – off goes the Scotland skipper in discomfort having suffered a blow early in the game. Gregor Townsend did opt for six forward replacements, but with Blair Kinghorn not having returned from his HIA, the Scotland coach may not get the final quarter bench boost he was hoping for.”

Ireland 5-0 Scotland

19 mins: So close to a second for Ireland. O’Mahony makes the burst through the Scottish line but Hansen can’t quite control the pass which comes his way with the Irish winger a matter of metres from the tryline.

And more bad news for Scotland as captain Ritchie has to make way with an injury. Fagerson on in his place.

Ireland 5-0 Scotland

16 mins: Ireland get their first chance to run with the ball in a while, but a thumping tackle from Gilchrist forces the Irish knock on and they win the scrum.

Some bad news from the Scottish bench, though, as Kinghorn – starting his 50th cap – will play no further part in this game after failing his head injury assessment.

Ireland 5-0 Scotland

15 mins: A penalty now coming for Ireland from the scrum and a chance to properly clear their lines.

How much will Scotland come to regret not taking the three points so early in this encounter?

Ireland 5-0 Scotland

Harry Latham-Coyle reporting from the Stade de France:

“20 phases of huff and puff but Scotland never looked close to blowing the Irish house down there. An immense defensive effort from Simon Easterby’s unit, who have clearly picked up on how South Africa managed to stall Scotland in the opening pool fixture: pour bodies into the breakdown and counter-ruck aggressively.”

Ireland 5-0 Scotland

14 mins: Smith shows excellent hands to keep the play alive but Scotland are still struggling to breach this disciplined Irish defence.

Into double-digit phases and still Scotland come.

Free-kick Ireland! What an effort from the men in green and after all that pressure, Gregor Townsend’s side will be coming away with nothing.

Ireland 5-0 Scotland

11 mins: Scotland fling it wide from the lineout as Graham looks to sneak over in the corner. He’s held up but Scotland have another penalty after Ireland were off their feet at the ruck.

Ireland 5-0 Scotland

Harry Latham-Coyle reporting from the Stade de France:

“That’s two eminently kickable penalties turned down by Scotland now. Clearly they feel their only chance of progressing will be a bonus point win after that fast Ireland start.”

Ben Fleming7 October 2023 20:13


Ireland 5-0 Scotland

10 mins: An early victory at the scrum for Scotland as they win the penalty but again they decide against the three points and head to the corner.
