Ireland come out on top in incredibly tense first half against Scotland

14-3 at half-time, but our nails are still chewed clean off.

That first half of Ireland and Scotland's crucial Six Nations clash was plenty scrappy, a little bit messy, and the energy of the crowd watching was all over the place.

It feels like every game during the Six Nations has been described as "Oh no, wait til you see, THIS is the big one!", but that really feels true in this case, as Ireland pull out all the stops to get the better of their Scottish competitors.

It didn't start off great for us, but it wasn't long before we had swung things back in favour, and then just kept on swinging at every opportunity we could.

Right as the first half was coming to an end, Jacob Stockdale got one more in before closing time, and in the process he has broken the record for most Irish tries in a tournament. Just one more try and he sets the record in Six Nations, although not the Five Nations.

Despite all of this good news, it still has consistently felt like the whole game could go either way, and everyone watching at home is in agreement.
