Paul O’Connell believes that Ireland will face the ‘best Scottish team’ in almost 20 years

Posted by

Ireland take on Scotland in Edinburgh on Sunday at 3 o’clock it what should be a cracking match. Ireland have bounced back since their opening two losses to Wales and France away and at home. Ireland picked up a very impressive win in Rome two weeks ago and will have confiedence heading into their last two games vs Scotland and at home to England at the Aviva Stadium.

Former Irish and Munster second row and now the Irish forwards coach Paul O’Connell believes this is the best Scottish team in the past 20 years. Massive credit has to go to the Scottish coach Gregor Townsend for the job he has done with this Scottish team and the talent that’s currently in the Scottish squad is very encouraging if you’re a Scottish fan.

Stuart Hogg and Finn Russel to only name two have serious talent and will be on the plan with the Lions this summer if the tour goes ahead, no doubt about it.
