Watch: Miller touches down as Ireland ladies beat Scotland

Rugby: Womens Six Nations

Killeen native Alison Miller added another try to her international collection tonight as she touched down in the first half of Ireland’s 22-15 win over Scotland in Glasgow tonight.

Ireland won the game thanks to an injury time try from Jenny Murphy after the sides were level for most of the second half.

Ireland were hot favourites but were 15-10 down at the break, despite tries from Miller and Sene Naoupu.

Former Dublin footballer Lindsey Peat drew the sides level with an early second-half try to tie things up and a draw looked the most likely result until Murphy went over for the winner with one of the last acts of the game.

Ireland are away to Italy next weekend before hosting France two weeks later.
