"It's going to be a different experience from past Six Nations as I have to fly back to France instead of staying in camp here", he explained. "We knew that if we lost we would be dead and buried because teams do not come back from two opening defeats, but we need to be more fluid and play more rugby".

O'Connell, who helped Ireland to three Guinness Six Nations titles during his playing career, watched on from the BBC studios as Ireland ran out 22-13 victors in Edinburgh. We've got to make sure we kick on from here.

"They're obviously disappointed, the effort the players put into the first-half was outstanding, how they implemented the game plan we worked on all week and put Ireland under pressure", he said. 'We'll see what will happen over the next few days. 'If we were able to replicate it in the second, I think we'd be here with a win.' Laidlaw, meanwhile, was critical of referee Poite, citing one instance of particular injustice as far as the Scotland captain was concerned.

'We have a couple of chances and we took them.

Russell is confident that the things that went wrong against Ireland can be put right in the French capital. "Three slip-ups cost us", he said.

"There was a lot of knock-ons and we gave away penalties in the second half". Whenever we got into their half we struggled to keep hold of the ball.

The young stand-off didn't have the pace to go all the way but slung a long pass - which looked suspiciously forward - to the unmarked Earls, who scored the decisive try, converted by Carbery. We felt we'd done alright in some areas, and were pretty poor in others with some silly mistakes.

Scotland dominated the Irish during the first half but two defensive slips allowed Conor Murray and Jacob Stockdale in to score. But if we hadn't won here, we were definitely out of it.

"Both teams' energy levels dropped in the second half, but they were more accurate than us and that was the difference", he said.

Ireland's game management was made easier by Scotland committing 15 handling errors, more than twice as many as the Irish. "We trust the players to come off the bench and step up as Joey did".
