In a gripping evening of rugby, Dan Sheehan’s try, flanked by Finn Russell’s penalties, gave Ireland a slender lead by halftime after a cautious first half.

Andrew Porter’s contentious score extended Ireland’s advantage, although Huw Jones injected a glimmer of hope for Scotland in the closing stages.

Scottish Rugby influencers Graham Love wrote: “Were they not a bit hasty in awarding that!?”

Another fan wrote: “No chance Carley saw it grounded. Half the Irish team flopped over the top of it.”

A third commented: “Shocking refereeing, that was clearly not a try and he was in no position to award it!”

“Ridiculous he didn’t check that / he never seen it grounded,” wrote a fourth.

A fifth added: “Went to TMO in a couple of instances where he should have have visibility, and then gave that instantaneously, despite being entirely unsighted.”

Betting sites have adjusted their odds accordingly, with Gatland’s likelihood of departure shortening from 3/1 just a week ago. Presently, he surpasses Galthie and Scotland’s Gregor Townsend, positioning himself as the prime candidate for an exit from the Six Nations stage.
