Ireland match ‘do-or-die’ for Graham’s Scotland

Scotland’s Darcy Graham may have impressed by scoring four tries in Saturday’s 84-0 rout of Romania in the Rugby World Cup but the winger knows there is a bigger challenge ahead against Ireland next weekend.

Graham’s side needs to beat the world number one side in Paris next Saturday to maintain any hopes of reaching the quarter-finals.

A bonus point win over Pool B leaders Ireland, with a margin of eight points or more, would guarantee Scotland’s first World Cup knockout stage appearance in eight years.

“It’s do or die now, it’s almost a World Cup final for both teams,” said Graham.


“Winner takes it all pretty much. For us it’s about getting our week right and fire into an incredible week, it’s a very exciting time ahead,” the 26-year-old added.
Scotland’s recent record against their Celtic cousins is poor, having last beaten them in 2017.

Ireland are favourites to lift the Webb Ellis trophy later this month having not lost in 16 Tests against all opposition, their most recent victory coming over holders South Africa on September 23.
