Six Nations: Laidlaw’s boot seals Scotland comeback

Greig Laidlaw kicked all the points as Scotland staged a fine comeback to sink Ireland 12-8 and chalk up back-to-back RBS 6 Nations victories for the first time since 2001, according to the official website of the competition.
For Scotland, having defeated Italy in the previous match, their hopes of clinching the RBS 6 Nations title remain very much alive after a first Championship victory over Ireland at Murrayfield in 12 years.
On the other hand Mike Brown is convinced Grand Slam-chasing England are capable of achieving “big things” after coming through their sternest test of the RBS 6 Nations bruised and bloodied but with a 23-13 victory over France.
England are now two wins – against Italy at home and then Wales at the Millennium Stadium – away from clinching their first Grand Slam for a decade.
“We are certainly capable of achieving big things as a group, as long as we keep focusing and working hard,” Brown said.”It is brilliant when you are winning but it’s not hard to keep a lid on it because the culture we have got won’t let us get ahead of ourselves. We won’t be looking any further ahead than Italy in a few weeks which will be tough. We can keep our focus because we know we have so much to work on as a group.”
