"We are three or four years behind Ireland in terms of what they've done and achieved over the last few years", Scotland coach Gregor Townsend said.

"Against both Ireland and England, we've shown we can go up against them and we will continue to do so".

Ireland began the game on the front foot but it took an errant pass from Pete Horne to present Stockdale with the chance to canter over for the game's first try in the 22nd minute.

But that wasn't the main talking point, unfortunately.

A Wales win at the death would have broken Irish hearts but as Wales went for broke, Jacob Stockdale picked off a loose Gareth Anscombe pass and cantered home under the posts.

"Credit to the management team to have prepared us so well for each match with so many players missing", said Sexton.

Schmidt took over a demoralised Irish side after the 2013 Six Nations but then guided the Irish to back to back titles in 2014/15.

"This will be week number eight but for some players it's only week two".

That has not happened this year as Les Bleus seem to be struggling with fitness levels late in their games.

The broken nature of the game made it hard for either team to produce moments of real quality and Jonny May's stabbed kick into the dead ball area was probably the closest either side came to a try in the first half - and Elliot Daly was a good few metres away from that.

Despite playing nearly non-stop top-flight rugby veteran skipper Alun Wyn Jones has shrugged off any fatigue from his long season and had another outstanding game for his country.

"What I would say about this week is that you're always tired at this stage of the championship, there are always accumulated niggles that do make the last week a testing one anyway".

"For us it's about trying to drag those young guys along, they probably think they are going to get lot of opportunities but as I know it doesn't work out like that".

"It's something we've looked at". We were poor and gave Scotland the lead. But on the back of that, we created the score with a little set play which worked out really well. It's very raw at the moment and this has to be part of our journey.

Worcester's Ben Te'o replaces Jonathan Joseph at outside centre.

Ireland blamed the bus arriving at Murrayfield 15 minutes late on their 27-22 loss to Scotland a year ago - and captain Best insisted his side have learned the hard way how to clear unforeseen hurdles.

Scotland could argue that they deserved better than a 20-point defeat but handling errors let them down at crucial times as three scores were left on the Dublin turf.

Joe Schmidt's side could even secure the NatWest 6 Nations title this weekend, if they beat Scotland and end Saturday six points ahead of England.

But for the trip to Paris Jones has kept faith with Courtney Lawes, Chris Robshaw and Nathan Hughes in the back row. All eyes are now on the Stade de France.

'Fortnite Battle Royale' for iOS Coming, Invite Event Set for March 12
We know Fortnite for Xbox One can cross-play with other platforms, so there's likely a reason behind its exclusion. That would seem to put the non-mobile players at a huge advantage, given the controls, but at least it's an option.
