Johnson wants Ireland repeat

SCOTT Johnson is determined to build on his maiden win as Scotland interim head coach when Ireland visit Murrayfield in two weeks time.

Johnson – who took charge in December – saw his side beat Italy 34-10 on Saturday with tries from Stuart Hogg, Matt Scott, Sean Lamont and Tim Visser and wants a repeat performance next time out.

“The ability to put Italy away was pleasing,” he said. “But it amounts to nothing unless we come here against Ireland and do it again.”
