Ireland ran in three tries to set up a narrow 21-18 victory over Scotland in their Six Nations clash at Murrayfield this morning.

The result leaves the Scots still without a point from three games, while Ireland joined Wales and France on four points, two behind leaders England.

The Irish tries came from Jamie Heaslip, Eoin Reddan and Ronan O'Gara as the visitors stretched into a 21-9 lead.

Scotland fought back but all their points came from the boots of Chris Paterson and Dan Parks as they failed to cross the Irish line.
