Ireland worked their way to a 22-13 win over Scotland in Edinburgh, but it wasn’t the cleanest game of rugby in the world.
One of the most debated moments of the game wasn’t even noticed by most people, and it was committed by Scotland scrum-half Greig Laidlaw.

All the Scots calling O’Mahony dirty yet none are mentioning when Laidlaw deliberately stamps on his hands😂😂😂— Stuart Adams (@stuartadams98) February 11, 2019
Enjoyable, hard-hitting match with Scotland playing the more flowing rugby. Laidlaw's deliberate stamping on O'Mahony's hand was a low-point for me: vicious, reckless as to whether he caused injury and unwelcome in the game.— Greg B (@GregBracken) February 9, 2019
I think Laidlaw did a bit of his own policing later by stamping on O'Mahony's hand. https://t.co/rF8DkvzkJl— One does not simply… (@Fl4nkr) February 9, 2019
