Ireland close in on grand slam with win over Scotland
The Irish are just one win away from a grand slam in the Six Nations.
By outlasting Scotland 22-7 at Murrayfield on Sunday, Ireland earned a fourth straight victory of the championship to move onto 19 points — four more than defending champions France.
The French are now the only team capable of stopping Andy Farrell’s relentless squad from claiming a first Six Nations title since 2018.
That would require Ireland losing at fortress Lansdowne Road to visiting England and France beating Wales in a match taking place a few hours earlier next Saturday.
