Ireland crowned back-to-back Six Nations champions with Scotland victory | HIGHLIGHTS

After a successful conversion there were just four points between the sides, but the hosts held on to be crowned 2024 Men’s Guinness Six Nations champions.

Ireland claimed back-to-back Men’s Guinness Six Nations titles on Saturday, as they got past Scotland in the Aviva Stadium.

It ended 17-13 in Dublin, as Munster men Peter O’Mahony, Tadhg Beirne, Calvin Nash and Jack Crowley all started the fixture.

Finn Russell had the visitors ahead after just seven minutes, with the fly-half successfully kicking a penalty into a sea of green.

Andy Farrell’s men gained control of the tie five minutes later, when Dan Sheehan intercepted a Scottish lineout and bundled over for the first try of the afternoon. Crowley added to extras for a 7-3 lead.

A second Russell penalty would reduce the deficit to the minimum, with the Scots making it clear they were here for a fight.

Minutes into the second half it was Crowley’s turn to kick an easy penalty attempt, with the Munster man making no mistake in front of the posts to take his side four points clear.

Andrew Porter powered through for the hosts as the clock ticked down, a Crowley conversion sending the Boys in Green into a healthy advantage.

However, the visitors would not let up and a late spell of attacks was rewarded when Hugh Jones went over to make things interesting.

After a successful conversion there were just four points between the sides, but the hosts held on to be crowned 2024 Men’s Guinness Six Nations champions, allowing for fantastic scenes on St Patrick’s weekend.
