Ireland win Rugby World Cup opener against Scotland

Ireland delivered on their promise to hit form when it mattered most by stunning Scotland 27-3 with a bonus-point blitz to launch their Japanese World Cup quest in style.

James Ryan, Rory Best, Tadhg Furlong and Andrew Conway all crossed in Yokohama as Ireland made good on all their pre-tournament pledges.

Ireland's muscle-bound victory hands Joe Schmidt's men a fine chance to top Pool A and book a likely quarter-final battle with South Africa, following the Springboks' loss to New Zealand.
