RYAN WILSON will take no further part in Scotland's Six Nations campaign after sustaining knee ligament damage during the first half of the national team's defeat to Ireland at Murrayfield on Saturday. They finish against Wales and England. 'We got a lot of our attacking game into play, really good decisions and really good work rate off the ball meant that we were finding space in that first half.

"Both teams' energy levels dropped in the second half, but they were more accurate than us and that was the difference", he said. Scotland also lost three throw-ins.

Scotland's livewire fullback Stuart Hogg and Ireland's flyhalf and world player of the year Jonathan Sexton limped off in a close first half, during which the visitors outscored Scotland with two tries to one through Conor Murray and Jacob Stockdale.

"Some of the things that you see him doing.when that ball was scrappy, he went down and picked it up and made something out of nothing and that's what Joey can do and I thought he bossed the forwards well in a game that was very hard".

Scotland's captain Laidlaw expressed frustration with referee Romain Poite in a pitchside interview after the final whistle. 'In the second half, the execution of our set-piece plays to get us into our game and to put more pressure on Ireland just didn't happen. It's the defence battle, the contact battle, the kicking game which is so important. Carbery nearly gave Scotland its only try from an intercept, but he created the only try in the second half and kicked a penalty to deny the Scots even a losing bonus point at home. 'We'll see what will happen over the next few days.

"We get huge confidence from each other, we know we're good enough and it was an incredible performance to beat a side with the quality that Scotland have". "We took a step forward mentally and physically from last week".

BOD reiterated what needs to occur in Sexton's mindset and game preparation if Ireland are to keep hold of their talisman for a longer time. We're going to give it all we've got to finish as high as we can.
