Well. That wasn't in the script.
Scotland upset Ireland in the first MAJOR shock of the 2017 Six Nations (alright, there might have only been one match played so far, but that's beside the point). Stuart Hogg and Alex Dunbar scored tries and Greg Laidlaw's boot was on fire as Vern Cotter's side tactically outclassed Ireland.
Keith Earls and Iain Henderson both crossed over for Joe Schmidt's side as they threatened a major comeback. But Laidlaw killed the game with two penalties in the final seven minutes to secure the win.
Scottish fans, players and politicians were all jubilant on social media

Ireland now have to pick themselves up ahead of a trip to Italy - which is another potential banana skin. No Triple Crown , no Grand Slam and on the backfoot in terms of a championship.
Scotland meanwhile are on the road as well. They're going to Stade de France with the potential to cause another shock.
Let's just hope we're writing an Irish version of this article next Saturday.
