Scotland ran in five tries but had to repel Ireland’s second-half fightback to win 31-21 in their World Cup warm-up at Murrayfield on Saturday.
Scotland led 19-6 at half-time with tries from Ally Hogg, Andy Henderson and Euan Murray, Ireland replying with two penalties from Paddy Wallace.
The Scots lost their momentum in the third quarter, despite an early second-half try by Henderson, allowing Ireland back into the game with scores from Isaac Boss and Andrew Trimble.
But after a reshuffle Scotland rediscovered their form for Henderson to complete his hat-trick and seal victory.—Reuters
