Johnny Sexton, Ireland's world player of the year, left the field with an injury in the first-half.

Ireland got their Six Nations bid back on track in Edinburgh on Saturday but skipper Rory Best insists there is still more to come from his side after beating Scotland 22-13.

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.

But after a breathless first half in which the Irish edged 12-10, they scored a third soft try for some breathing room and their defense limited Scotland to just a penalty. "If we were able to replicate that in the second half I think we'd be here with a win", Townsend told reporters.

"We are relying on others, but when it comes to next week [in Italy a week on Sunday] and the final two rounds we don't have to rely on them for how we approach things and how we perform", Schmidt said.

"We have three of the toughest games to come", said the former Glasgow player of games against France, Wales and England. A Jacob Stockdale chip was covered by Scotland, until Tommy Seymour's pass off to fellow wing Sean Maitland was over the latter's head and into the hands of Ireland's Conor Murray to run in.

"It was two teams who went hard and we are very grateful to win".

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

The Scots were penalised at the scrum, fumbled on possession and a Russell forward pass all gave Ireland easy outs from their territory but when the champions got into the Scots 22, they looked set to take the game away.

"I'll be fine if I have to go back to Racing and play during the Championship's week off". The Scotland head coach, Gregor Townsend, felt his side should have been awarded a penalty but does not expect the citing officer to review the incident.

Finn Russell will play a characteristically avante-garde role this week as he flies back to Paris to play for his club Racing 92 ahead of Scotland's meeting with Les Bleus on 23 February. 'He wanted to stay on but his shoulder was not right. We'll see what will happen over the next couple of days.

"Why did we have such a good first half and not play the same in the second half?"
