Joe Molloy is joined by Ronan O'Gara and Keith Wood, to look back on Ireland's bonus-point 27-3 win against Scotland, to open their World Cup campaign.

They analyse what they describe as an "incredibly efficient" performance from Joe Schmidt's side, and in particular single Iain Henderson out for praise.

“He had an unbelievable game. Starting off with that break he just ripped through two Scottish defenders.

“They were in place to make tackles but he just had that extra acceleration. He’s very dynamic. We saw that on the Lions tour… But he seemed to take his game to a new level today," O'Gara said.

Keith Wood said that expectation should be tempered by the poor performance of the Sots, but that Ireland can retain plenty of confidence after their assured performance.
