Four penalties from Greig Laidlaw helped Scotland come from eight points down to secure a 12-8 victory over Ireland in the Six Nations rugby match at at Murrayfield on Sunday.

Ireland dominated possession throughout but only led 3-0 at the break courtesy of a Paddy Jackson penalty.

However, the Irish looked to have finally made the breakthrough when Craig Gilroy scored the only try of the game three minutes into the second half.

Jackson missed the resultant conversion and Laidlaw punished subsequent Irish errors and indiscipline, knocking over four penalties in succession to turn the match.

It's the first time since 2001 that the Scots have won back-to-back Six Nations matches.

The tournament resumes on the weekend of March 9-10 when Scotland entertain Wales, Ireland play France and unbeaten England welcome Italy.
