  • Ireland win 28-6 for a result that puts them top of the Six Nations on points difference after Round 1. Thanks for watching. We'll be back again next week.

  • Ireland are now five metres from the try-line with the crowd willing them on to claim another score. Jackson kicks cross-field, it bounces up and Dave Kearney grounds the ball. However, replays show the ball had bounced out of the field of play and that is the game's last passage. The win is Ireland's.

  • Ireland keep the ball in hand ten metres inside their own half before side entry from Scotland gifts the hosts metres. Jackson takes them.

  • Dunbar receives some medical attention as this match dips in tempo, with the two points safely tucked away for the home side. Five minutes left.

  • CONVERSION, IRELAND, SEXTON! 28-6! That is Sexton's last act as Paddy Jackson comes on along with Fergus McFadden and Isaac Boss, who replace O'Driscoll and Murray. Iain Henderson is also on, replacing Toner. Chris Cusiter is on for Scotland.

  • TRY, IRELAND, R KEARNEY, 26-6! There it is. Power and quick feet from Kearney sees the full-back get over. Job done for Ireland as Scottish heads drop.

  • Possession is back with Ireland soon after though as lovely hands from O'Driscoll and Sexton keeps the attack alive. Still 30 metres from the try-line as they look for the score that would put this game to bed.

  • And here is Sean Cronin and Tommy O'Donnell, who come on for Best and O'Mahony respectively. They will have an attacking line-out to deal with soon after appearing as Sexton pushes Ireland 30 out.

  • This is good stuff from Weir as he kicks into the corner again off a couple of bounces. Two more changes to mention as Matt Scott is on for Taylor while Cian Healy makes way for Jack McGrath.

  • Martin Moore is on for Mike Ross while Richie Gray also emerged a few minutes ago, coming on for Jim Hamilton. It's a Scottish line-out eight metres out here. Now, can they make this count? No, stolen.

  • Entertaining stuff now as Healy makes inroads over halfway, taking his side up to the 22, before the Scots survive thanks to Weir's cover tackle. Soon after it is Scottish ball bang on halfway, with full-back Hogg in particularly looking dangerous.

  • Now excellent defensive work from the Irish foils Scotland in the 22. Sexton clears the resulting penalty up to halfway before the line-out is won. Clinical, busy work from the home side right now.

  • PENALTY, IRELAND, SEXTON! 21-6! The pressure tells on Scotland as after a long advantage, Joubert blows to come back for an earlier penalty. Sexton makes no mistake from the right side.

  • Patient rugby from Ireland here as Scotland look to weather this barrage of attacks from the home side. It's an Irish scrum 20 metres out, with Marshall running it up hard off first phase in midfield.

  • Here comes Heaslip again, this time from a free-kick in his own half. Scotland eventually get their hands on it though, but it's a bad kick from Taylor that goes out on the full. Irish line-out 30 metres out coming up.

  • CONVERSION, IRELAND, SEXTON! 18-6! No mistake from the fly-half as the lead grows to twelve points.

  • TRY, IRELAND, HEASLIP! 16-6! But that is a big win for Ireland. A catch and drive sees Heaslip at the back of a driving maul that raced over the line.

  • Ireland are looking to hit back in quick time though and enjoy good ball on the away 22. How will Scotland's defence hold up here? Well, Ireland pass the ball into touch so it's a mini victory for the visitors.

  • PENALTY, SCOTLAND, LAIDLAW! 11-6! It's an encouraging start from Scotland which results in points as Toner is penalised for entering a maul from the side.

  • Welcome back to Dublin. No changes to report at the break as Sexton kicks us off down to Weir, who sends it back to his opposite number.
