Rory Best: 'Basically nearly everything we talked about doing we didn't do'

Yet they let victory slip, Greig Laidlaw nailing two late penalties to send a sold-out Murrayfield into raptures.

With a wealth of attacking talent such as fullback Stuart Hogg and flyhalf Finn Russell, Scotland have proved they can score against some of the best sides in the world in recent years.

"The Championship now looks like a very tough Championship to win, but we know we're not out of it, we did pick up that bonus point, and we've just got to try to go to Italy and make sure we have five or six points from the first two games and try to get some momentum into the back half of the Championship". We haven't played for a long time and there's a few changes in there as well since the last time we played.

CBS Radio, Entercom Merge To Remain Competitive

Vern Cotter was delighted with the way Scotland staved off Ireland's second-half comeback to begin their Six Nations campaign with a 27-22 victory at Murrayfield on Saturday.

Ireland however roared back into the contest to score 14 unanswered points courtesy of tries from Iain Henderson and Paddy Jackson in a game that ebbed and flowed in a dramatic second period.

What was nice was stopping them scoring tries a metre from the line, total commitment, scramble defence and then being able to get a grip of the game in the last 10 minutes.

Vancouver mosque hosts Quebec shooting vigil
President Donald Trump also spoke to Trudeau by phone Monday to offer his condolences to all Canadians in the wake of the deaths. Trustee Haroon Khan says a handful of people gathered at the mosque last night, once the news broke about the shooting.

The visitors were on the board in the 25th minute when the ball was worked left for Earls to squeeze over in the corner.

"I think we arrived about 15 minutes late to the stadium and we were late for most things all first half", he said.

Cotter's Irish counterpart Joe Schmidt said he had always feared an upset could be on the cards and also praised Scotland's new-found winning mentality. We fell off some tackles which we will have to look at before we go up against the French. "I'm really happy for the players that put in so much work, it validates that work". It changes the dynamic if you start the Six Nations with a win, everybody talks about it but the feet will be on the ground on Monday morning. "What we can do is try to work towards a much better performance the next time".
