"I'm so proud of the players with the way they played and the effort they put in", he said.

Last year's Six Nations Grand Slam winners were stunned by England in their Dublin opener, but they bounced back with a 22-13 triumph at Murrayfield. In the couple of minutes leading up to the break, there was a period of play that saw Scotland go through 25 phases deep inside Irish territory without scoring a single point.

Was involved in the Scottish defensive error that lead to Murray's try.

Scotland captain Greig Laidlaw admitted their second-half errors cost them the game, saying, "We released the pressure valve".

After the substitution, Sam Johnson reduced the deficit to just two points but Keith Earls' second-half try sealed the win for the visitors.

"They tried their heart out and you never question the courage of this team, that's not what anyone is talking about, or their commitment, but their attack was like watching paint dry. We're relying on other people now [to win the championship], but the one thing we don't have to rely on other people for is how we approach things and how we perform".

Johnny Sexton suffered a head injury leaving Joey Carbery to run the game for nearly an hour: the Munster star threw an intercept pass for Sam Johnson's try for Scotland, but conjured the winning score for Earls.

The French, who will be hurting following their 44-8 defeat by England on Sunday, have not lost at home to the Scots since the final Five Nations tournament in 1999, when Scotland beat them 36-22, with present head coach Gregor Townsend scoring one of their tries.

Ireland coach Joe Schmidt praised his team's set-pieces and ferocious defense, but said the key difference from the week before was their attitude.

The try was a double blow to Scotland.

The fly-half was trampled on and had to be replaced by Joey Carbery after just 23 minutes. Like Japan will need to be at the World Cup, Scotland had to be smarter, more creative and faster - and in the first half it looked like they were well on their way. Russell asked. "What changed?"

"With 15 minutes to go there was an opportunity to go for four tries but we couldn't get the sustained pressure". But if we hadn't won here, we were definitely out of it.
