Stephen Ferris believes Ireland will prove too good for Scotland


Share this article


Whether Ireland go on to win the Grand Slam or not, Joe Schmidt's side have put themselves in with a strong chance of claiming the Six Nations championship title thanks to a Saturday that worked out very nicely indeed. 

Ireland's thrilling home win over Wales coupled with Scotland's first victory over England in the Six Nations for 10 years has put the Irish side five points clear at the top of the table with two rounds of action to go.

And next up is Scotland in two weeks and attempting to avoid what they inflicted on England. 

For former Ireland and Ulster back-row Stephen Ferris, there's little danger of that proposition such is his confidence in the Irish team. 

"The next hurdle is Scotland who got a great win obviously over England and played some fantastic rugby - probably the best rugby of the weekend in that game. Yes, they've got to beat this Scottish team who are going to come to Dublin with a bit of fight, passion and heart but I believe that Ireland are too good for Scotland and that Ireland are going to beat Scotland and it's all going to come down to that crazy weekend on the 17th of March," he said on Monday Night Rugby as he and ex-Ireland head coach Eddie O'Sullivan joined Joe to reflect on the weekend and the implications going forward.
