However, Irish-based Australian coach Williams was quick to criticise Ireland's display, nowhere near the level that saw Schmidt's side topple the All Blacks 16-9 past year.

Australian rugby coach Matt Williams has slammed Ireland's performance in this morning's Six Nations clash against Scotland, as the defending champions were made to work for a 22-13 win.

Ireland had lost the physical battle against Eddies Jones' England team, prompting a week of soul-searching, but Scotland were never going to beat the Irish in a similar way.

"It was chaotic in the first half and Scotland probably enjoyed that better".

'We have a couple of chances and we took them. But Murray and Stockdale responded for the visitors who held a 12-10 lead at the pause.

"They're obviously disappointed, the effort the players put into the first-half was outstanding, how they implemented the game plan we worked on all week and put Ireland under pressure", he said.

"The thing we don't have to rely on other people for is how we prepare ourselves and how we get out and play the week after next, and then in the final two rounds (against France at home and Wales away)". "If we score there it would be huge but fair play to them for keeping us out", said the Edinburgh forward.

The Clippers came back from 28 points down to beat the Celtics 123-112, the biggest comeback in Clippers' history. Trade deadline's over. "It's unacceptable what we did tonight for a team of our caliber".

Russell said: "The first half showed how good we can be". Poite did seem rather reluctant to punish Ireland at times, with Schmidt's men using all their experience to close the game out.

The Scots appeared to have pushed the Irish back in midfield and the ball went loose, but Carbery picked up and slipped through a gap as Allan dell and replacement Rob Harley missed a double tackle.

"But we don't strive for alright, we want to be the best we can be and last week wasn't that".

His coach Gregor Townsend took responsibility, saying Scotland had to improve their set-pieces.

Scotland remain ahead of Ireland in the table but with trips to Paris and Twickenham to come, grounds at which they last won in the Five Nations era, Townsend does not see his side as title contenders.

"He just has to be a little bit selfish and look after himself by giving it a fraction earlier than he ordinarily would, because he is 33 and because we need him more than ever in the World Cup".
