Brian O’Driscoll gave the Dublin faithful a perfect send-off with a man of the match performance in Ireland’s 41-7 rout of Italy at the Aviva Stadium while France left it late to beat Scotland 19-17 in a scrappy affair at Murrayfield.

Ireland scored 7 tries, O’Driscoll’s brilliant slight of hand unlocking the Italian defense and setting up 3 of the them.

The win sees Ireland take a firm grasp on the Six Nations Championship and travel to Paris next week knowing it is very much theirs to lose.
