The Ireland victory over Scotland would have been a special occasion for every player on the pitch, but for Peter O'Mahony the game had a bit of added significance.

The Munster man was making his 100th appearance for Ireland, marking the night with a top class performance and well deserved team victory. The 34-year-old was absolutely immense throughout.

O'Mahony has long been the emotional leader in this Irish team, something that was the case once again on this occasion. When things threatened to boil over at one stage in the second half, he was very much stuck in the middle of things.

Even if this was an emotional occasion for Peter O'Mahony, he made sure to stand up for his teammates after the final whistle.


Dan Sheehan was subjected to a very poor push from Scotland prop Pierre Schoeman during the scuffle mentioned above, with the Cork man quick to point out Scotland's failings in other areas of the game.

Speaking to Virgin Media after the game, he said that Scotland failed to back up their big talk earlier in the week.

It's part and parcel of rugby (the scuffle), it's a physical game.

They were in the press beforehand saying they were going to knock us off and end our streak, how they figured us out and worked us out.

I don't think they did to be honest with you.

Dead right.


Scotland have been known to talk a big game in the past, just as they did prior to this fixture. However, as has so often been the case, they failed to back that up on the pitch.

Peter O'Mahony certainly seemed to enjoy watching them fall short once again.
