It has been around since the end of the 19th century and an annual

:00:27.:00:36.

figure -- fixture at since the 90s. Scotland against Ireland. For the

:00:36.:00:42.

last couple of years it has been the men in green who dominated.

:00:42.:00:52.
:00:52.:00:52.

Last weekend it was the same old story as Ireland started best.

:00:52.:00:58.

Scotland fought back and they have a real chance of taking the series

:00:58.:01:04.

if they win today. Welcome to bought part in Inverness. Scotland

:01:04.:01:14.
:01:14.:01:18.

need to win to stand a chance of claiming the trophy. Thank you for

:01:18.:01:24.

joining us for what should be a fantastic occasion. We are joined

:01:24.:01:34.
:01:34.:01:37.

by Fraser Ingle's -- Fraser Inglis. The Irish usually catch and kicked

:01:37.:01:42.

the ball and they cannot do this today. There are 14 players each

:01:42.:01:52.

side, shinty is usually two more. As far as the points in the game go,

:01:52.:01:59.

it is 1.4 over the bar in normal play and two points from over the

:01:59.:02:09.
:02:09.:02:09.

bar in three play. If you get a goal it is three points. Goals are

:02:09.:02:16.

quite valuable. This is the second leg, the first leg was last week in

:02:16.:02:22.

Ireland. Owen Kelly for the Irish racked up quite a lot of points. He

:02:23.:02:28.

is missing today. He made a big difference last week. He will be a

:02:28.:02:38.
:02:38.:02:41.

big loss for Ireland. They are more than capable. Owen Nolan also got

:02:41.:02:47.

on the scoresheet, scoring for Ireland. He took that ball first

:02:47.:02:57.

time. He did not allow the Scotland defence to close him down. Scotland

:02:57.:03:05.

fought back. They had one player who put four points into the

:03:05.:03:12.

Scotland cause. You can see here he was composed and a great shot hits

:03:12.:03:21.

the root of the -- the roof of the net. Gary Innes scored a second for

:03:21.:03:26.

the Scots here? That right. It makes it competitive. These late

:03:26.:03:31.

goals made up a bit of the difference. There is only five

:03:31.:03:37.

points of a difference now. That leaves Scotland in fine fettle and

:03:37.:03:43.

I talked to their captain today. You have got a few young guys in

:03:43.:03:50.

the team, how do you assess their performance so far? It was a

:03:50.:03:56.

learning curve for them. Those conditions did not quite suit us.

:03:56.:04:01.

Long grass and a lot of sand in it and the wind played quite a factor

:04:01.:04:07.

as well. Today conditions are much better for us and hopefully we can

:04:07.:04:11.

stick to the Sinn take skills we usually do and start to put more

:04:11.:04:16.

points over the bar this week. I think the difference last week was

:04:16.:04:21.

we were unable to take our chances of when we had a chance. How big a

:04:21.:04:31.

player will Owen Kelly be today? is a loss. We are not too worried

:04:31.:04:35.

though we will just focus on who we have got rather than who we have

:04:35.:04:43.

lost. What is the game plan today? The plan is to go out and win this

:04:43.:04:49.

match. We are not too worried about last week. We know it will be more

:04:49.:04:57.

important what we do today. what changes have you made? We have

:04:57.:05:01.

made a few tweaks to the team having looked at the whole squad.

:05:02.:05:06.

Hopefully we will go out there and when this today. The pitch could

:05:06.:05:10.

not be better for us so why am really confident we can go out and

:05:10.:05:18.

do this today. It is a good atmosphere at the Park today.

:05:18.:05:24.

Fraser Inglis is still with me. What do the Scottish team have to

:05:24.:05:31.

do to succeed here today? It was mentioned in the last interview,

:05:31.:05:35.

they have to take advantage of their two. Opportunities.

:05:35.:05:40.

Conditions were difficult for them last week to be fair. Conditions

:05:41.:05:48.

are fine for them today. They have to make up the difference. If they

:05:48.:05:55.

could get a goal -- if Ireland get a goal at the start to the

:05:55.:05:58.

difference would then be eight points. Scotland have do make a

:05:58.:06:05.

difference early on. Scotland have a good chance. Owen Kelly is a big

:06:05.:06:10.

loss for Ireland. But hopefully we will see a Scottish victory.

:06:10.:06:17.

should be a fantastic occasion. I will hand you over now to our

:06:17.:06:24.

commentary team, Fraser Mackenzie the former Scotland coach and hour

:06:24.:06:34.
:06:34.:06:36.

match commentator, Hugh Dan It is always a pleasure to welcome

:06:36.:06:46.
:06:46.:06:54.

our Celtic cousins from Ireland to Bught Park. Allan Sutherland from

:06:54.:07:03.

Marine Harvest being introduced to the Ireland team by their captain.

:07:03.:07:10.

There is a stiff breeze from left to right as we watch the game. Left

:07:10.:07:17.

to right as we look across the setting of Inverness. The town is

:07:17.:07:27.
:07:27.:07:30.

to our right. I am joined by a man with plenty of experience of this

:07:30.:07:36.

kind of thing, Fraser Mackenzie, he has a big track record as a manager

:07:36.:07:42.

and assistant manager on these occasions. Scotland have to come

:07:42.:07:48.

back this week. Their mental State and focus must be right for the

:07:48.:07:54.

game today. They have got one chance to make things right. The

:07:54.:08:01.

Irish will be the same. They will want to go back with a win. It is

:08:01.:08:06.

the second Test of course, I went to Ireland in the first Test last

:08:06.:08:16.
:08:16.:08:30.

week. -- when it to Ireland. -- a win to Ireland last week. First, we

:08:31.:08:40.
:08:41.:08:41.

Apology for the loss of subtitles for 62 seconds

:08:41.:09:43.

IRISH NATIONAL ANTHEM PLAYS. A great reception as ever for the

:09:43.:09:53.
:09:53.:10:23.

Irish will stop now, Flower of The old flower of Scotland, when

:10:23.:10:31.

will we see, your like again? Who fought and died for your wee bit

:10:31.:10:41.
:10:41.:10:47.

hill and glen. We stood against them, Edwards army, and sent them

:10:47.:10:57.
:10:57.:10:59.

homeward to think again. Those days are past now. And in the past, they

:10:59.:11:09.
:11:09.:11:15.

must remain. We can still rise now and be at nation again. That stood

:11:15.:11:25.
:11:25.:11:31.

against him, it would's army, and sent them homeward, to think again.

:11:31.:11:41.
:11:41.:11:49.

And sent them homeward, to think again. Go Scotland! Hang on to your

:11:49.:11:55.

Celts, it is about to take-off, it is going to be 80 minutes of

:11:55.:12:05.
:12:05.:12:21.

organised mayhem as this Scotland Roddy Macdonald, the newly crowned

:12:21.:12:31.
:12:31.:12:51.

But there are plenty players are here to come on. It is open

:12:51.:12:56.

substitutions. All of these players will come on because the coaches

:12:56.:13:01.

will have to use all the substitutes as the match goes on.

:13:01.:13:09.

It is going to be a very demanding 80 minutes. Anna Methody is David

:13:09.:13:19.
:13:19.:13:19.

Mitchell from muscle but. Norman Campbell has won the toss. -- hour

:13:19.:13:29.
:13:29.:13:38.

referee is David Mitchell from when it comes to the three's, that

:13:38.:13:46.

should make a big difference. slightly different arrangement at

:13:46.:13:52.

the start, Afro in rather than a throw up, and we are off. This will

:13:52.:13:58.

be fast and furious in the opening stages as Scotland try and take

:13:58.:14:04.

this game to the Irish in the early stages. The tactic surely has to be

:14:04.:14:14.
:14:14.:14:28.

teams. Absolutely. There is a chance to put the ball through the

:14:28.:14:35.

posts here. He could get two points if this goes over the bar and

:14:35.:14:42.

Between the two posts. That was not a bad effort for Bartlett. He was a

:14:42.:14:49.

bit of a revelation in last week's match. I think it did go over and

:14:49.:14:56.

they got two points. It looks like there is some doubt. It has

:14:56.:15:01.

actually been confirmed that Bartlett had struck with at two

:15:01.:15:07.

pointer. The referee has given that. It did not look to me as though it

:15:07.:15:12.

had gone over. The Disney be just an indication that the wind is

:15:12.:15:19.

going to play -- there is maybe just an indication that the wind is

:15:19.:15:29.
:15:29.:15:30.

going to play a big part in this game. The Scottish defence is out

:15:30.:15:40.
:15:40.:15:40.

en masse here. It is important that they hold the advantage. The early

:15:40.:15:50.
:15:50.:16:08.

advantage they have taken with three hit from the ground. -- At

:16:08.:16:18.
:16:18.:16:25.

free hit from the ground. The man in the yellow boots comes out

:16:25.:16:35.
:16:35.:16:36.

second best. What wonderful skill. That is a worried. Great skill from

:16:36.:16:46.
:16:46.:16:46.

Michael Price. Scotland did the great thing. If they can try to

:16:46.:16:56.
:16:56.:17:07.

push the Halles into wide area as that should help. -- the hurlers.

:17:07.:17:14.

The Fort William man has taken an 0 to the chin. There will be plenty

:17:14.:17:23.

of wood flying about. This is the sort of thing we are going to see.

:17:23.:17:25.

Just at loose stick the year. The players do take time adjusting. The

:17:25.:17:32.

Irish have not done it for a while. It must be difficult to walk into

:17:32.:17:38.

this sort of pressure. It is much higher tempo than an ordinary

:17:38.:17:45.

shinty game. It is very hard to keep composure and discipline right

:17:45.:17:54.

from the start. There we go. The go-faster stripes. It is not David

:17:54.:18:04.
:18:04.:18:07.

Coulthard, it is our friend Mr Innes. He has stolen, borrowed and

:18:07.:18:17.

baked for an new helmet. He had an orange one last week. You will

:18:17.:18:25.

notice him get the opportunities with his new stick as well. I think

:18:25.:18:31.

MacDonald is having to leave the field, whether he will leave as a

:18:31.:18:38.

blood injury and come back, I have my doubts. Corrigan is a pacy

:18:38.:18:46.

player. The difference between him and McDonald is experience. There

:18:46.:18:54.

is a good chance now directly in front of goal. There are two points

:18:54.:19:03.

up for grabs if he can get this over. The secret of this is that

:19:03.:19:08.

you must take your chances. We saw last week that Scotland had plenty

:19:08.:19:14.

of opportunities to take points and did not quite take them. It was so

:19:14.:19:24.
:19:24.:19:44.

wet and windy with the long grass Two's. There was not too much in

:19:44.:19:54.
:19:54.:19:58.

that. Here is Corydon again. Michael Rice, the Irish captain is

:19:58.:20:08.
:20:08.:20:08.

having to go back. No prisoners taken in the Under 21 match as we

:20:08.:20:14.

saw earlier. This was a great chance. John Stuart maybe should

:20:14.:20:19.

have jumped India and tried to clatter into D Gourlay at the same

:20:19.:20:29.
:20:29.:20:54.

time. -- jumped in the year. -- problem. The Scottish boys felt it

:20:54.:21:03.

was not right. That is right. Hopefully the referee will keep an

:21:03.:21:13.
:21:13.:21:17.

eye on it this week. Towards goal! From midfield! Goodness me! From

:21:17.:21:27.

absolutely dead centre of the field, this is at tremendous bloke. --

:21:27.:21:37.
:21:37.:21:48.

for Findlay MacRae. That is a bonus. Scotland could not have expected

:21:49.:21:53.

and goalkeeper of that experience to make such a hash of that. Maybe

:21:53.:22:03.
:22:03.:22:27.

for the calculators at the end of this match to work out the scores.

:22:27.:22:32.

Scotland have to be very careful when there are defending but

:22:32.:22:36.

they're not just drawn towards the ball. They need to be organised at

:22:36.:22:45.

the back. Campbell is playing like a spare player in the midfield.

:22:45.:22:52.

There is a chance for Ireland here again. Again, this tactic of

:22:52.:22:58.

Scotland using two defenders when an Irishman gets the ball. The

:22:58.:23:02.

Irish players are having difficulty adjusting to the fact that they can

:23:02.:23:08.

put their arms round the Scottish players. It is part of their game.

:23:08.:23:12.

Scotland get another opportunity here. Just to physical, all over

:23:12.:23:18.

him. It gives them another opportunity here from a wide area.

:23:18.:23:23.

They need to keep the scoreboard ticking over. This time it is

:23:23.:23:33.
:23:33.:23:35.

Corrigan who is going to have a go. Surrey, it is Kevin Bartlett - -

:23:35.:23:40.

sorry, that was Kevin Bartlett. That is another two points from the

:23:40.:23:46.

dead ball. This is exactly what Fraser Inglis was talking about,

:23:46.:23:52.

you have got to keep the scoreboard ticking over. Kevin Bartlett is a

:23:52.:24:02.
:24:02.:24:21.

corner. The referee says it was a push in the back this time. That is

:24:21.:24:26.

a tough one to call. You have got to go into tackles like that, but

:24:26.:24:30.

they think that was the right decision in the end. That was a

:24:30.:24:40.
:24:40.:24:40.

Apology for the loss of subtitles for 62 seconds

:24:40.:26:32.

Again it falls to Stuart who is now an old hand. What a save. What a

:26:32.:26:39.

save from that man from killdeer. We will take a look at that again.

:26:39.:26:49.
:26:49.:26:54.

That was goalkeeping from the highest order. -- Kildare. Another

:26:54.:27:04.
:27:04.:27:27.

opportunity for Kevin Bartlett. save by the Irish keeper. The Scots

:27:27.:27:36.

are still pushing forward. At flying save by the keeper, who is

:27:36.:27:46.
:27:46.:27:46.

Apology for the loss of subtitles for 62 seconds

:27:46.:28:26.

their chances while they have the in the game at the moment. You yes,

:28:26.:28:36.
:28:36.:28:37.

another great opportunity. That is a great save. Meanwhile, at the

:28:38.:28:44.

other end, the Irish move it up. Again, this extra man, Ian

:28:44.:28:50.

MacDonald from cute, driving forward. He cleverly held on to

:28:50.:28:56.

double their, he knew the Irishman was coming in from behind. He did

:28:56.:29:01.

well to draw the foul of there. He just shielded the ball and got the

:29:01.:29:11.
:29:11.:29:36.

He is a fantastic hitter of the ball. It was only six or seven

:29:36.:29:46.

weeks ago that he was here picking up the man-of-the-match awards.

:29:46.:29:56.
:29:56.:30:04.

That was when they won the Cup. The Irish are having a few problems

:30:04.:30:14.
:30:14.:30:25.

with their footwear. They keep Irishman. This is good skilled bill.

:30:25.:30:35.
:30:35.:30:42.

That was high and wide. You will notice Ireland's that's Brendan

:30:42.:30:48.

Maher is in there as the extra man. Me be just a hint that Ireland are

:30:49.:30:58.
:30:59.:31:14.

missing the man who got all the time to clear it. Again, great

:31:14.:31:20.

cover in midfield. The Scottish midfielder working their socks off

:31:20.:31:30.
:31:30.:32:00.

front, but it seems as if the Irish are getting to grips with the game

:32:00.:32:09.

now. Everything is just bogged down in the middle at the moment. Became

:32:09.:32:15.

just needs to open up. There is an example of what he would have done,

:32:16.:32:19.

it would be natural for the Irish player to reach out his foot and

:32:19.:32:26.

kick it away. Yes, but he has plenty of experience in his game,

:32:26.:32:31.

so we should not be doing that and has given the Scottish another

:32:31.:32:39.

opportunity to keep the scoreboard ticking over. So this is part klutz.

:32:39.:32:43.

To get the ball over the bar between the posts would give him

:32:43.:32:53.
:32:53.:32:58.

two more points. Off the post! But was unlucky. That was curving away.

:32:58.:33:03.

We were in perfect position there to see that when drift away. That

:33:03.:33:12.

is a chance gone. That is a wild slash by Daniel Cameron. He could

:33:12.:33:22.

be in trouble for that. Brendan Maher was running through their NT

:33:22.:33:29.

just to come out to stop him going any further. He is a player there

:33:29.:33:33.

really impressed me in the game last week. He has got a lot of

:33:33.:33:43.
:33:43.:33:45.

speed. That was a good effort from Kevin Bartlett. Now Ireland have

:33:45.:33:54.

the chance. As soon as he picks up bad ball, the Scottish player wants

:33:54.:34:03.

to charge him down to try and put him off. Again, wide. The Irish

:34:03.:34:13.
:34:13.:34:29.

will be very disappointed not to Remember, 40 minutes each way.

:34:29.:34:38.

Scotland live - - Scotland lead by seven points to zero. That was a

:34:39.:34:48.

poor effort. He is looking for a second attempt, but he is not going

:34:48.:34:58.
:34:58.:34:59.

to get one, is he? David Mitchell has reversed that one. I don't

:34:59.:35:09.
:35:09.:35:25.

think the Irish were too happy play. That was a wasted opportunity.

:35:25.:35:31.

Am not sure if you miss hit the ball, but you want to be going for

:35:31.:35:41.
:35:41.:36:03.

Yes, it is a daft foul from John. You would never expect that from a

:36:03.:36:10.

shinty player. It has given them an opportunity. This has to be charged

:36:10.:36:20.
:36:20.:36:26.

down. It is Willie Hyland again from County leash. But his wild and

:36:26.:36:30.

wide again! That is the second golden opportunity for the Irish to

:36:30.:36:40.
:36:40.:36:43.

get back into the game. There will not be happy with that. - - that

:36:43.:36:53.
:36:53.:37:06.

men in the middle, and it is a goal! I think there was a kick here.

:37:06.:37:16.
:37:16.:37:22.

Ruddy Macdonalds has been pulled back. No score. Roddy Macdonald

:37:22.:37:32.
:37:32.:37:55.

kicked the ball. So, quite rightly You yes, there was. It was a great

:37:55.:38:00.

opportunity but it just got his foot in the way in. The Scottish

:38:00.:38:06.

coaching staff will be happy about the way things have gone so far. I

:38:06.:38:10.

would like to see more White Bull's however, to keep it away from the

:38:10.:38:20.
:38:20.:38:46.

controlling the game. Look at that, three Scottish shirt around the

:38:46.:38:56.
:38:56.:39:04.

Irish attacker. There is MacDonald again and another rash challenge. I

:39:04.:39:10.

would not say that was a foul! he only had one hand on the stick

:39:10.:39:20.
:39:20.:39:28.

it would have been a file. - - a foul. Here is Mr Campbell again. He

:39:28.:39:38.
:39:38.:39:43.

will fancy a go at this. Plenty of height, but not enough distance.

:39:43.:39:52.

The keeper is allowed to pick it up to get it away. An Irish that was

:39:52.:39:58.

being used there. The goalkeeper at the moment is my pick of the Irish

:39:58.:40:05.

players. He is standing firm. Norman Campbell has moved 15 yards

:40:05.:40:15.
:40:15.:40:17.

forward. They are certainly putting the goalkeeper under pressure.

:40:17.:40:22.

Getting towards the Inverness town end. Again, he has got too much

:40:22.:40:32.
:40:32.:40:45.

height. It gives the Scottish wonder a bit promising field

:40:45.:40:55.
:40:55.:40:57.

position. You don't want to give away fouls in that area. I didn't

:40:57.:41:06.

think there was a great deal in that, to be honest. Again, the

:41:06.:41:10.

Scottish Standing Firm into midfield. Cameron has been

:41:10.:41:19.

impressive. The Irish coach is looking to make a change you. They

:41:19.:41:24.

are not going to leave it too long. Interesting they are going to

:41:24.:41:28.

change before half-time. This is a chance. Nice got no need to be

:41:28.:41:38.
:41:38.:42:05.

He just swung across him there. That was a silly foul to give away.

:42:05.:42:15.
:42:15.:42:15.

Just a little bit of argy-bargy here. It just seems to be part of

:42:15.:42:20.

their game, a bit of pushing and shoving. You don't need to read too

:42:20.:42:28.

much into that. The Scottish players are allowed to charge, but

:42:28.:42:38.
:42:38.:42:53.

goalkeeper. And that is what you want your goalkeeper to do. He has

:42:53.:42:59.

got a lot of experience. He has got something like five under 21 caps

:42:59.:43:09.
:43:09.:43:16.

as well, so very used it to the rules. Gary Innes coming off,. Just

:43:16.:43:24.

did change their to freshen the legs in midfield. That is all part

:43:24.:43:34.
:43:34.:44:02.

of this game, using your full squad. Corrigan to Stewart, could not

:44:02.:44:12.
:44:12.:44:13.

quite turn it. Scotland have got to add to this. With the wind in the

:44:13.:44:18.

second half Ireland have come right back into this game. The have got

:44:18.:44:28.
:44:28.:44:33.

changes. Drew McNeil obviously not happy with the conversion of

:44:33.:44:43.
:44:43.:44:45.

possession into points. Bartlett, Divilly has got a handle on him for

:44:45.:44:53.

the time being. Takes it for a wander. It breaks back. John Stuart

:44:53.:45:03.

outnumbered this time. We create. Too ambitious in the middle of the

:45:03.:45:10.

field near. Norman Campbell stepping end but MaCrae does his

:45:10.:45:20.
:45:20.:45:24.

best to tidy up and are does the job. -- Barr does the job.

:45:24.:45:34.

Unfortunately for Scotland, it is an Irish all. That was a great ball

:45:34.:45:44.
:45:44.:45:49.

by Barr right down into the corner. That is what you want. Number 13

:45:49.:45:59.
:45:59.:45:59.

comes off. The Irish are not quite showing their hand in terms of the

:45:59.:46:05.

substitutions yet. The Scottish hitting with the wind has been a

:46:05.:46:15.
:46:15.:46:15.

huge Bassett this afternoon. -- a huge asset this afternoon. It is

:46:16.:46:25.
:46:26.:46:32.

Bartlett again. As we look from behind Bartlett, from the main

:46:32.:46:41.

stand at Bught Park. Will it drift in? That has gone in. That is

:46:41.:46:47.

another two points to Kevin Bartlett. He is doing exactly what

:46:47.:46:57.
:46:57.:47:00.

he has been told. He is on very skilful and very accurate form.

:47:00.:47:07.

ball going exactly where he wanted it after 33 minutes. Scotland in

:47:07.:47:17.
:47:17.:47:41.

through ball. A great touch. An opportunity that had to be taken.

:47:41.:47:46.

John Stuart had a blast, you cannot blame him for that, you cannot

:47:46.:47:54.

blame him for having a go. It would have made a completely different

:47:54.:48:04.
:48:04.:48:06.

complexion on the score if he had managed to get that. You will be

:48:06.:48:16.
:48:16.:48:21.

happy to see Mark spiral coming on. -- Mark Sproul. This game will

:48:21.:48:31.
:48:31.:48:33.

probably suit him better than shinty! Again Mickey who is having

:48:33.:48:43.
:48:43.:48:48.

a Stormer in midfield. -- Macrae. That was a rash challenge again in

:48:48.:48:55.

a dangerous area. Yes, he was turning their when he just came in

:48:55.:49:02.

and pick the shoulder into him. They have not done very well with

:49:02.:49:12.
:49:12.:49:12.

their free-kicks so far. Norman Campbell is on the line with the

:49:12.:49:19.

keeper just in case it does not make the distance. It is long, high,

:49:19.:49:27.

straight and did. At long last Ireland get on the score sheet. The

:49:27.:49:33.

first points for Ireland. A good conversion. Ireland needed to get

:49:33.:49:43.
:49:43.:49:44.

some points on the scoresheet here. That is a single point to Ireland

:49:45.:49:52.

because he did double touched it. He rolled it. Again, the referee is

:49:52.:50:02.
:50:02.:50:05.

struggling with this the rule of the charge. That is a great tackle.

:50:05.:50:15.
:50:15.:50:16.

Great timing. Up the middle. Here come the Irish again. Trying to

:50:16.:50:26.
:50:26.:50:26.

create an opening. And look at that, another three dark blue shirts. It

:50:26.:50:36.
:50:36.:50:38.

is a curious combination, but it works. At the heart of the Scottish

:50:38.:50:44.

defence Barr is having a better game than he did last week. He has

:50:44.:50:54.
:50:54.:51:04.

stuck to the task. This is another chance for Ireland. Here we go

:51:04.:51:14.
:51:14.:51:15.

again, the running with the ball. This is Mr Barr in the middle of

:51:16.:51:25.
:51:26.:51:27.

the field. Socks around the ankles. He does not like shin pads. Here we

:51:27.:51:37.
:51:37.:51:41.

go again then. The man from Tipperary lobs it in. A good, good

:51:41.:51:51.
:51:51.:51:52.

Scottish defence. Yes. I did hit in from the wide area. Scotland just

:51:52.:51:57.

crowded it out. That is exactly what they needed to do. Norman

:51:57.:52:07.
:52:07.:52:08.

Campbell came in the year. Scotland leading by nine points to one. This

:52:08.:52:17.

is a good ball. A dangerous ball. The Irish keeper deals with it well.

:52:17.:52:27.
:52:27.:52:32.

He has had a quiet spell. The Irish get it away. MacLeod of Kyles got

:52:32.:52:38.

his stick to it. That is Norman Campbell, he has got all the gear

:52:38.:52:48.
:52:48.:52:49.

as the spare man. Look at the two Scots. This is great play by

:52:49.:52:59.
:52:59.:53:00.

Divilly, taking it all the way up and delivering it to his forwards.

:53:00.:53:09.

McIntosh and Barr, the two Bergin men get it out. A mistake by

:53:09.:53:19.
:53:19.:53:19.

Macleod here. I good tackle again by Scotland. Roddy Macdonald could

:53:19.:53:28.

have done better with that. It is wide, but is it too long? They have

:53:28.:53:34.

kept it in play, and they have turned it into a goal! That is at

:53:34.:53:41.

fantastic strike from absolutely nothing. Kieran Divilly did well.

:53:41.:53:47.

That is exactly what Scotland did not want to happen. It is the worst

:53:47.:53:52.

time for it to happen. Scotland really have to pick themselves up

:53:52.:54:01.

now. Look at the clock. You would not bet against the Irish getting

:54:01.:54:07.

another strike before have time because they have pulled themselves

:54:07.:54:14.

back to 9-4. That is exactly what they have done! More points for the

:54:14.:54:24.
:54:24.:54:26.

Irish from open play. The Scotland manager is not a happy man. The

:54:26.:54:35.

clock is ticking. David Mitchell has told the Irish we are in

:54:35.:54:45.
:54:45.:55:04.

injury-time. We have played one points for Scotland. That is

:55:04.:55:12.

Bartlett again. This is Bartlett from the touchline, this time. I

:55:12.:55:17.

think the goalkeeper got his stick to it. It might have hit the bar

:55:17.:55:27.
:55:27.:55:45.

Scotland we make it. We will just checked these scores but this is

:55:45.:55:55.
:55:55.:56:06.

the latest. -- 11-5 to Scotland. That was off side. The player was

:56:06.:56:13.

in before the ball. Yes, that was an offside decision, a correct

:56:13.:56:23.
:56:23.:56:27.

decision. And David Mitchell brings the first half to an end. It has

:56:27.:56:34.

been scrappy in parts. There has been some very, very tough tackling

:56:34.:56:40.

and some great skill from both sides with some great goalkeeping

:56:41.:56:48.

he in particular. At half-time we have Scotland with one goal and

:56:48.:56:58.
:56:58.:57:04.

eight points, that is 11 points to Ireland's 5. From Scotland's point

:57:04.:57:14.
:57:14.:57:14.

of view it has been highly successful. We have to take

:57:14.:57:19.

advantage of the opportunities. The striking of the ball has been

:57:19.:57:26.

fantastic. Look at this first, very early on. Again from that side,

:57:26.:57:32.

that is fantastic striking. Here is the Scotland goal, and huge hit

:57:32.:57:41.

again. There is Finley MaCrae hitting it. The goalkeeper thinks

:57:41.:57:46.

it is going over the bar but at the last minute it drops and goes in

:57:46.:57:53.

behind him. It really is a fantastic goal. Do you see that

:57:53.:57:59.

kind of goal very often in shinty? I think he was trying to put it

:57:59.:58:04.

over the bar. It just dropped short at the last minute which surprised

:58:04.:58:11.

the goalkeeper. Some great saves in the first half. Absolutely. Stuart

:58:11.:58:16.

hits the ball through. He knocks it onto the bar and completes the

:58:16.:58:23.

clearance. The goalkeeper just gets his step up here and it hits the

:58:23.:58:31.

bar. That was at fantastic save. This one again. It is saved first

:58:31.:58:39.

time. A diving save this time from the goalkeeper who knocks it wide.

:58:39.:58:48.

There is the first stage. It seems like the Irish took quite a while

:58:48.:58:55.

to warm up. They were guilty of missing a few chances as well.

:58:55.:59:03.

were and they struck wide. All the points they tried to get where a

:59:03.:59:07.

real points. Scotland were doing well to close them down at that

:59:07.:59:17.
:59:17.:59:20.

stage. Here is another one white. Here is at three coming in. -- a

:59:20.:59:30.
:59:30.:59:35.

free coming in. There are so many set-pieces it is vital you take at

:59:35.:59:44.

least 50% of them. Joe Bergin on the gold sheet. Absolutely.

:59:44.:59:52.

Unfortunately for Scotland it is right on the byline here. Joe

:59:52.:59:58.

Bergin did fantastically well. This ball should have been turned and

:59:58.:00:06.

shuttled over the byline but it was not. Neil did not know where it was.

:00:06.:00:12.

That was a huge boost to Ireland because at that stage Scotland were

:00:12.:00:19.

starting to move away from them. thought Scotland would win the game

:00:19.:00:28.

and the CDs, but have they done enough? -- the CDs. I would say it

:00:28.:00:38.
:00:38.:00:42.

is anybody's guess. -- the series. Ireland were in ascendancy at the

:00:42.:00:49.

end of the first half. They could step in and make up the difference.

:00:49.:00:53.

Let us take leave of this international action just for the

:00:53.:00:58.

moment. Last month was the Camanachd Cup final which turned

:00:58.:01:05.

out to be an epic encounter between Newtonmore and Ross County. Let us

:01:05.:01:15.
:01:15.:01:26.

look at some of the action. -- Newtonmore inverses Kingussie. Per

:01:26.:01:34.

Danny Macrae were the first chance. Great! And a goal! My goodness, a

:01:34.:01:44.
:01:44.:01:59.

across. Persistent play. A chance for Newtonmore again. Oh, yes, a

:01:59.:02:04.

second goal! It is Stephen McConnell with a second for

:02:04.:02:14.
:02:14.:02:16.

Newtonmore. My goodness! Here is a chance for Kingussie. Fraser man

:02:16.:02:21.

wrote with that magnificent strike for Kingussie to get Kingussie back

:02:21.:02:31.
:02:31.:02:41.

in the Camanachd Cup final. -- at the other end. Here he comes

:02:41.:02:49.

again. Danny Macrae! Danny Macrae has had a quiet spell and he has

:02:49.:02:59.
:02:59.:03:14.

tired Newtonmore further ahead. is looking for a quick 12. --

:03:14.:03:24.
:03:24.:03:25.

acquit 1-2. Goal! It is Martin Dallas! He has scored Kingussie yet

:03:25.:03:35.
:03:35.:03:42.

another lifeline. It is the-2. Ross! Ross has done it again. -- 3-

:03:42.:03:52.
:03:52.:03:57.

2. What a goal! It is now 3-3. They are fighting for every ball. Here

:03:57.:04:07.
:04:07.:04:09.

is a chance! It is Danny Macrae! It is a Danny Macrae hat trick!

:04:09.:04:16.

Newtonmore have won the Camanachd Cup for the first time in 25 years.

:04:16.:04:22.

A great game that was. A bit of chat about the goal there from

:04:22.:04:27.

Danny Macrae, a very, very fast goal, but was it the fastest of all

:04:27.:04:35.

time? The referee of the Scottish Cup final had the fastest goal ever.

:04:35.:04:43.

Here is that goal. The ball runs through, he just catches up with it

:04:43.:04:48.

on time and that turned out to be the winning goal for Fort William

:04:48.:04:54.

that day. Here we have a split screen to see who had the fastest

:04:54.:05:01.

goal. We will find out very shortly. A huge coincidence that Derek went

:05:01.:05:09.

on to referee the match. Derek Cameron wins it with 10.2 seconds.

:05:09.:05:14.

There will be a lot of discussion in shinty circles about that.

:05:14.:05:21.

think because Derek Cameron was refereeing that they he had to take

:05:21.:05:26.

the time and put that down but he still holds the title for the

:05:26.:05:36.
:05:36.:05:41.

fastest goal in as Scottish Cup wind in the second half? Hopefully

:05:41.:05:47.

the rain will not get any heavier. Though more wet the bald guts to

:05:47.:05:51.

heavier it gets and the less it turns in the air. Ireland will be

:05:51.:05:56.

hoping the wind keeps up to give them the chance to shoot from

:05:56.:06:02.

longer range. At this stage it is anyone's game. It is down to who

:06:02.:06:07.

takes their chances and he shows composure. It will be hugely

:06:07.:06:14.

exciting. Will Scotland hang on? They can hang on, but I think

:06:14.:06:20.

Ireland are probably favourites now. Let's get back to our commentary

:06:20.:06:30.
:06:30.:06:38.

series over the two Tests. We understand Scotland are going to

:06:38.:06:46.

replace their goalkeeper, with Gavin Stobbart coming on. To my

:06:46.:06:50.

mind Stewart MacKintosh was playing well. I don't think Stewart

:06:51.:06:55.

MacKintosh did anything wrong. Maybe he picked up an injury, or to

:06:55.:07:01.

give Gavin Stobbart a run out. He is a big presence in the back there.

:07:01.:07:11.
:07:11.:07:32.

Very noisy! We have wins and just a into the face of a stiff breeze.

:07:33.:07:42.
:07:43.:07:43.

Scotland lead by 11 points to five. I think Ireland will have the upper

:07:43.:07:53.
:07:53.:08:21.

Stewart. The flag is raised. He cleverly saw he was. No, it is a

:08:21.:08:26.

corner. It will come back out for a free. The flag was raised, but that

:08:26.:08:33.

seems to be an indication of where. Let's look at it again. Just a

:08:34.:08:43.
:08:44.:09:12.

That was easy for the Irish. That is just giving the ball way. Sean

:09:12.:09:17.

Nicholson, no need for that. player was just told them on to his

:09:17.:09:27.

stick. Again, not a great deal in it. The Irish will launch every

:09:27.:09:32.

possible attempt now it because of the wind. Am sure they have been

:09:32.:09:42.
:09:42.:10:20.

drift. Keith MacRae is probably the best player in the game at

:10:20.:10:25.

defending from the front. He has got a grip engine on him and he

:10:25.:10:32.

will defend very well from the front. He has one man of the match

:10:32.:10:36.

at under 21 and I'm glad to see him back on the park again. Norman

:10:36.:10:46.
:10:46.:11:05.

Campbell. He keeps it flat so the every loose ball and firing it back

:11:05.:11:15.
:11:15.:11:32.

pick that up. I'm sure the Irish coach was going to be making a lot

:11:32.:11:37.

of noise to make sure that the referee sold that the shirt was

:11:37.:11:47.
:11:47.:12:16.

now, moving in packs. The goalkeeper has had to play the ball

:12:16.:12:24.

and put it out for a corner. He did not have much option there.

:12:24.:12:29.

Scotland's man of the match so far has to be Kevin Bartlett. He is a

:12:29.:12:34.

real live wire up there and is doing really well for Scotland.

:12:34.:12:40.

has got for free hits so far, Kevin Bartlett, but this time it is

:12:40.:12:50.
:12:50.:12:56.

Findlay MacRae. That is a huge hit. The wind held it up, though. The

:12:56.:13:04.

goalkeeper gets down and back quickly. What a chance for

:13:04.:13:12.

Scotland! It has gone wide. It is Bartlett. What was I saying about

:13:12.:13:22.
:13:22.:13:25.

him?! Famous last words. It felt perfectly to compare and he will be

:13:25.:13:35.
:13:35.:13:50.

dangerous area at this stage of the match is not good. Scott will not

:13:50.:13:55.

will be disappointed at conceding that freed there. It is Willie

:13:55.:14:05.
:14:05.:14:24.

point for Ireland. Keeping the scoreboard ticking. With the wind,

:14:24.:14:28.

it is ominous for Scotland. They need to get the ball in the met at

:14:28.:14:38.
:14:38.:14:38.

Apology for the loss of subtitles for 62 seconds

:14:38.:15:30.

their going to have any chance of still with the ball. Again, at big

:15:30.:15:35.

challenge and half an Irish stake there. Good challenge from Neil

:15:35.:15:41.

MacDonald here. Just trying to put him under pressure there. He was

:15:41.:15:51.
:15:51.:15:52.

pulling him back as well. This is Willie Hyland with another

:15:52.:16:02.
:16:02.:16:03.

chance. How often have we seen this, Ireland picking up the score. The

:16:03.:16:07.

Scots have packed the goalmouth and Kizi goes for a goal, but he has

:16:07.:16:17.

chipped it over. The two points entire island. 11 points to eat. It

:16:17.:16:22.

is starting to look quite ominous for Scotland. I was quite surprised

:16:22.:16:26.

that he went for that there. I thought he would have just flicked

:16:26.:16:36.
:16:36.:17:05.

moment. - - are just off the pace. There are three Irishmen that her

:17:05.:17:12.

running the show at the moment. That has gone wide. In the midfield,

:17:12.:17:19.

the Irish are running the show. should be hitting it out wide.

:17:19.:17:25.

Stewart MacKintosh has come back on. I am not sure why they made that

:17:25.:17:29.

decision, but they have got two very good goalkeepers. Scotland

:17:29.:17:39.
:17:39.:18:01.

foul there. Kevin Bartlett is against the wind for this freak,

:18:01.:18:06.

but hopefully he can get another couple of points. Scotland could do

:18:06.:18:11.

with getting the ball in the net. There are 30 minutes left in this

:18:11.:18:21.
:18:21.:18:23.

match, the second Test. That is another huge hits and another great

:18:23.:18:30.

blow. Another two points to a Bartlett. That is his 5th

:18:30.:18:36.

conversion of. Kevin Bartlett is doing this single-handedly. You

:18:36.:18:41.

would maybe expect Gary Innes to be doing this, but Kevin Bartlett has

:18:41.:18:51.
:18:51.:18:52.

been fantastic. You just can't relax again the Irish attack.

:18:52.:19:02.
:19:02.:19:02.

Temple of the game is really high. - - but the tempo of the game is

:19:02.:19:12.
:19:12.:19:26.

each school would take three points of that lead. Willie Highland

:19:26.:19:32.

flings it over the bar from open play. Another. Thailand. That is

:19:32.:19:38.

another ball straight down the centre of the park. He had all the

:19:38.:19:43.

time in the world to hit that over. That is just too easy for Willie

:19:43.:19:53.
:19:53.:19:54.

Hyland. Willie Hyland is becoming a bit of a thorn in the side of

:19:54.:20:04.
:20:04.:20:29.

Michael Rice, the captain makes it 13 points to 10. Ikea - - a great

:20:29.:20:39.
:20:39.:21:08.

the field there, it is a natural instinct for them to be all over

:21:08.:21:18.
:21:18.:21:55.

the Scottish player. That was packs. Gary Innes lets fly. That is

:21:55.:21:59.

from open play. Gary Innes has added to his remarkable tally of

:21:59.:22:05.

points for Scotland. That will do him the world of good putting that

:22:05.:22:15.

over from there. It just shows you what at trendy Helmut will do! He

:22:15.:22:25.
:22:25.:22:43.

has not been in the game as much as deep. The rain has come, from left

:22:43.:22:48.

to right so they have it in their face. They had the wind in their

:22:48.:22:58.
:22:58.:23:24.

faces and an increasingly strong there that probably didn't help.

:23:24.:23:32.

was surprised there that the linesman asked him to do that. But

:23:32.:23:39.

is just part of the game. Maybe the linesman did Scotland a favour

:23:39.:23:49.
:23:49.:24:05.

the pressure building. This is all about momentum for Ireland.

:24:05.:24:12.

Scotland are not helping themselves because they keep dropping the ball

:24:12.:24:16.

into the middle of the park and the Irish half-backs just keeps picking

:24:16.:24:26.
:24:26.:24:53.

it up. The need to get into the of a challenge here against the

:24:53.:25:03.
:25:03.:25:10.

wind. He might struggle to find the distance here. That would have had

:25:10.:25:16.

the legs, if it was straight enough. He did find the distance, but just

:25:16.:25:26.
:25:26.:25:27.

slightly off. Big game is on. The Irish don't hang about. Their

:25:27.:25:32.

natural inclination is to build up the pace of the game as we head

:25:32.:25:42.
:25:42.:25:47.

towards the final quarter. Just a little kick there. Sharp refereeing.

:25:47.:25:57.
:25:57.:26:13.

just a little bit too far. He is the player that we need to be

:26:13.:26:16.

getting involved in the game as much as we can because he has been

:26:16.:26:26.
:26:26.:26:27.

very influential. We have a substitution about to take place

:26:27.:26:37.
:26:37.:26:47.

is the substitution for Scotland, Andrew Corrigan coming on for Gary

:26:47.:26:54.

Innes. That is a bit of speed coming on there. Andrew is a very

:26:54.:26:59.

quick player and he has got a Harkness to his game and this last

:26:59.:27:09.
:27:09.:27:23.

year or two where his tackling has standing appealing, because if the

:27:23.:27:33.
:27:33.:27:48.

referee does not blow his whistle, He is a very skilful player. He is

:27:48.:27:55.

very creative from the centre of the park. He is doing very well. He

:27:55.:28:03.

has got quite a few points. I think it is Brendan Maher who has picked

:28:03.:28:11.

up an injury cure, and he has been very influential. When we get balls

:28:11.:28:15.

into the wide areas for the likes of Kevin Bartlett, we to look

:28:15.:28:18.

dangerous. Keith MacRae did make a little bit mistake thereby not

:28:18.:28:28.
:28:28.:28:54.

going after the ball when he Year award. -- Hurler of the Year.

:28:54.:29:04.
:29:04.:29:07.

He is certainly deserving of his place in the team. Now here is a

:29:07.:29:13.

huge hit from the Irish. That is another point from open play to

:29:13.:29:23.
:29:23.:29:23.

Ireland, from the middle of the field, 14-11. Le CAT that launched

:29:24.:29:30.

from the middle of the field. -- Look at that launched from the

:29:30.:29:39.

middle of the field. That was the captain, Michael Rice. There is

:29:39.:29:44.

appealing that the game could be slipping away from Scotland unless

:29:44.:29:52.

they get another score. That is what the Scottish captain needs to

:29:52.:30:01.

be doing in midfield. The Irish have lined up three players.

:30:01.:30:07.

Mackintosh has to be very careful here. Again it is the same player

:30:07.:30:14.

stepping forward and firing it from distance. I would not be surprised

:30:14.:30:21.

if Scotland made a tactical change soon. They have really got to go

:30:21.:30:31.
:30:31.:30:32.

for it now. The ball goes out. That is at loose ball from Norman

:30:32.:30:40.

Campbell. He knows he should have kept that in play. Scotland should

:30:40.:30:50.
:30:50.:30:51.

have kept the ball in play. At furrowed brow ooh. -- a furrowed

:30:51.:31:01.
:31:01.:31:04.

brow. Mayor will not be quite as used to the short grass of Bught

:31:04.:31:14.
:31:14.:31:25.

Park. -- Maher. Scotland will be making more changes. As a wild

:31:26.:31:31.

swing by Bartlett, just a bit of experience showing here as the

:31:32.:31:37.

Irish charge again. It is this thing of picking up the ball in

:31:37.:31:44.

midfield. The only way to stop it is head on. You have to get tight,

:31:44.:31:49.

tried to drive them into wider areas to try and cut the angles

:31:49.:31:59.
:31:59.:32:00.

down. Robbie Macleod of Kyles is coming off. The Irishmen are in

:32:00.:32:08.

full flow. It is a wonderful sight, a fantastic display of athleticism.

:32:08.:32:18.
:32:18.:32:18.

The scene to go -- grow stronger. - - they seemed to grow stronger. It

:32:19.:32:25.

is just impossible to get the ball off them when they start. This is

:32:26.:32:32.

exhibition stuff from Ireland. man is having a very influential

:32:32.:32:42.
:32:42.:32:44.

game. He has just changed direction and knocked it in. It is just wide.

:32:44.:32:51.

It is not all about power, it is about balance and peace and all the

:32:52.:33:01.
:33:02.:33:05.

rest of it. -- pace. There is Bartlett sticking with it and Roddy

:33:05.:33:13.

Macdonald comes back. It does not quite reach John Stewart. Norman

:33:13.:33:20.

Campbell driving out that mistake. A mistake by Joe Bergin who has had

:33:20.:33:27.

his moments but it has not quite come off for a burden. He got that

:33:27.:33:37.
:33:37.:33:44.

goal in the first half but he was unlucky the year. -- unlucky there,

:33:44.:33:54.

Joe Bergin. It has been an expensive weekend for the Irish in

:33:54.:34:04.
:34:04.:34:06.

terms of a broken timber. This time there are plenty more to choose

:34:06.:34:16.
:34:16.:34:18.

from. Each one is better than the last. Finley MaCrae, will his

:34:18.:34:28.
:34:28.:34:28.

effort be better than the last? Off it goes to the post. John Stewart

:34:28.:34:35.

and again the Irish put it out. Will Bartlett go? Nobody is going

:34:35.:34:41.

to take the ball off him. He has only one thing in mind, give me the

:34:41.:34:47.

ball. He has done fantastically well for a young player. He has got

:34:47.:34:57.
:34:57.:35:00.

his confidence up and he is exactly who should be taking this three. --

:35:00.:35:10.
:35:10.:35:10.

free. Let's see where this one ends up. He has just shaved too much of

:35:10.:35:19.

it. It is difficult against the wind brought. That's right. This

:35:19.:35:24.

went is difficult. The interpretation of the referee also

:35:24.:35:34.
:35:34.:35:43.

plays a big part. -- this when it is difficult. -- wind. It has gone

:35:43.:35:50.

out for a corner. That man thought he was playing shinty. He will be

:35:50.:35:56.

disappointed. The corner is taken from midfield, just like a Rugby,

:35:56.:36:06.

in line with where it crossed the line. Ireland have a chance. Over

:36:06.:36:16.
:36:16.:36:24.

it goes, home and Drew. That is another point to Ireland. Scotland

:36:24.:36:34.
:36:34.:36:42.

need to step up the pace. There are ticking away. There is Norman

:36:42.:36:50.

Campbell. It is not his best afternoon. He had a very good first

:36:50.:36:59.

half but it has been difficult in the second half. The Irish are

:36:59.:37:04.

crowding the Scots in the same way as Scotland crowded the Irish in

:37:04.:37:13.

the first half. There is a little bit of tiredness creeping in.

:37:13.:37:23.
:37:23.:37:25.

Finley MaCrae swinging through. The game is starting to slip away from

:37:25.:37:35.
:37:35.:37:45.

Scotland. Scotland to can charge best from 20 yards. A free-kick. 10

:37:45.:37:54.

critical minutes for this series to be decided. Highland swings it a

:37:54.:38:04.
:38:04.:38:14.

long, since it wide, a lucky break for Scotland. Scotland charged that

:38:14.:38:24.
:38:24.:38:29.

down, they sent two men which put him off. Scotland are just not

:38:29.:38:39.
:38:39.:38:39.

getting it past midfield at the moment. They need to get a

:38:39.:38:44.

goalscoring opportunity by taking advantage of the differences

:38:44.:38:54.
:38:54.:39:00.

between shinty and Harling. -- hurling. John Stewart does not want

:39:00.:39:10.
:39:10.:39:16.

to give a file away. -- foul. He does not get it far enough. Here is

:39:16.:39:26.
:39:26.:39:27.

Norman Campbell. He hit his own man with that one though. In midfield

:39:27.:39:33.

Scotland have at platform to attack. I would not be surprised if Norman

:39:33.:39:38.

Campbell stepped forward, he has. He is unlikely to have a shot at

:39:39.:39:46.

goal. That would be outrageous tea even think of it. What do you

:39:46.:39:53.

think? He might try to get it close and give someone else an

:39:53.:40:03.

opportunity to hit at it. He could just drop it in in front of the

:40:03.:40:08.

goal and try to get a goalscoring opportunity. As things stand,

:40:08.:40:14.

Scotland could still win this series. It is a great ball from

:40:14.:40:20.

Norman Campbell but again, Scotland going into the box before the ball,

:40:20.:40:27.

they just cannot afford to give this away at this stage of the game.

:40:27.:40:33.

An opportunity gone! They really need to focus towards the end of

:40:33.:40:40.

the game. It was quite clearly offside. Now the ball is at the

:40:40.:40:46.

other end. Norman Campbell quite clearly doing the business of. Here

:40:46.:40:56.
:40:56.:40:59.

comes Roddy Macdonald. Maybe that is what they need to do. Here is

:40:59.:41:09.
:41:09.:41:09.

MaCrae. Well closed. That is the difference for me in the second

:41:09.:41:19.
:41:19.:41:20.

half, the way the Irish have closed down on the Scottish players. He

:41:20.:41:29.

still gets away with it. Two goes at it eventually. They are living

:41:29.:41:37.

on borrowed time here. It is really a struggle now for them but you

:41:37.:41:44.

never know which way this game is going to swing, not long now.

:41:44.:41:54.
:41:54.:42:09.

are six minutes to goal in the gathering gloom at. -- to go.

:42:09.:42:16.

Bartlett fires it forward. He will want to keep it in play to create

:42:16.:42:26.
:42:26.:42:29.

more chances. There are two points in it. Meanwhile, the Irish have

:42:29.:42:37.

not given up on this match, never mind the series. It is not over

:42:37.:42:47.
:42:47.:42:47.

until it is finished. There are five minutes to go. It is still

:42:47.:42:55.

Scotland's sees if the score line remains as it is. It is that Tibet

:42:55.:43:02.

there is no margin for error however. Mackintosh weights. He has

:43:02.:43:11.

dropped it. It has gone over his head. I think, that is in the net.

:43:11.:43:19.

There is uncertainty here. This is crucial. This is at really big

:43:19.:43:25.

decision. If this is at goal the Irish have am bonus point. Let's

:43:25.:43:32.

watch it. The ball drops. Mackintosh gets his hand. That for

:43:32.:43:39.

me is at all. I think the player is offside. But the referee has given

:43:39.:43:49.
:43:49.:43:55.

the goal? No, he has taken the ball back to the medal. He has given de

:43:55.:44:02.

Gaulle because he is restarting the game. -- she has given the goal. It

:44:02.:44:09.

is complicated. In the blink of an eye Ireland have taken the lead. It

:44:09.:44:17.

is now at 14 points to 15. We will have to take a look back at it just

:44:17.:44:22.

to make sure who it was that launched that ball but it was down

:44:22.:44:32.
:44:32.:44:40.

has disallowed it but the referee has overruled that. It is a goal,

:44:40.:44:49.

the score sheet shows it is at goal. It has turned the match and the CDs

:44:49.:44:59.
:44:59.:45:03.

in the favour of Ireland. -- the series. There are three minutes

:45:03.:45:13.
:45:13.:45:14.

left for Scotland to be retrieved best. After they hit to Scotland. -

:45:14.:45:24.
:45:24.:45:28.

- after they hit to Scotland. -- a free hit to Scotland. We have got

:45:28.:45:36.

the calculator out. Scotland have to win by six points. Another goal

:45:36.:45:41.

will win this for Scotland. Bartlett needs to get this on goal.

:45:41.:45:50.

He has to go for gold here. He has fired it along the ground. It is

:45:50.:46:00.

worried. Two minutes left. I think he dropped a bit of apps Manor

:46:00.:46:10.
:46:10.:46:13.

there. -- a clanger. He will be very disappointed with that. It has

:46:13.:46:23.
:46:23.:46:25.

worked out in Ireland's favour. Scotland desperately need a goal. A

:46:25.:46:32.

goal is all it would take. They need the ball up the other end.

:46:32.:46:37.

Ireland have got a bonus point because of their second goal which,

:46:37.:46:47.
:46:47.:46:49.

in addition to last week... Down to the left. We understand there will

:46:49.:46:56.

be one minute of added time. In it comes from Scotland. Can they get

:46:56.:47:05.

it on the goal? One goal would clinch it for them. Still a chance.

:47:05.:47:11.

Bartlett to Gary Innes. A corner to Scotland. It was more than half a

:47:11.:47:21.

chance. What an opportunity. That fill it to him to hit the target

:47:21.:47:30.

and it just hit the player. What a defence. There are 30 seconds left

:47:30.:47:39.

in regular time. I am not quite sure if that takes in the minute

:47:39.:47:46.

extra. We have one minute of injury time. Up it goes from Scotland.

:47:46.:47:56.
:47:56.:47:56.

They need de Gaulle do get the bonus point. -- the gold -- the

:47:56.:48:06.
:48:06.:48:06.

goal. Ireland know they can still hold on here. They will throw

:48:06.:48:13.

everything at it. It is another corner. Surely the last chance for

:48:13.:48:21.

Scotland. They should bunched it here. If they can get a bit of

:48:22.:48:29.

width when the ball is hit rather than just a static start. Now it is

:48:29.:48:35.

a case of who is going to go for glory here? The Irish can pack as

:48:35.:48:43.

many men as they want on the line. It is too far, it is worried. That

:48:43.:48:53.
:48:53.:48:55.

to me could be Scotland's last chance. -- it is wide. All eyes are

:48:55.:49:05.
:49:05.:49:08.

on the referee. It is too late for Scotland. The Irish have done the

:49:08.:49:18.
:49:18.:49:19.

business. In the very last closing period of what has been another

:49:19.:49:28.

titanic struggle of Scotland and Ireland. It has been a very, very

:49:28.:49:38.
:49:38.:49:47.

brave effort. Scotland, it has to central in the game. There was a

:49:47.:49:51.

slight mistake at the end there with the offside because Coleman

:49:51.:50:00.

dearly. There was only one point in its, but it was enough because the

:50:00.:50:04.

two gold the Irish have got today and the nine points to give them 15,

:50:04.:50:08.

in addition to what they had last week against Scotland's one goal

:50:08.:50:14.

and 11 points has given Ireland's did two Test series against

:50:14.:50:24.
:50:24.:50:27.

Such a disappointment for Scotland. And narrow victory for Ireland and

:50:27.:50:32.

they take the series. Heartache for Scott and there at the death.

:50:32.:50:39.

Absolutely. They got a fantastic start, and really in the second

:50:39.:50:44.

half Ireland dominated and the ran out worthy winners. We are drawing

:50:44.:50:50.

by the Scotland coach. How hard was that its it right at the end.

:50:50.:50:56.

thought we had one of the series at the end there. All we had to do was

:50:56.:51:00.

scored that goal at the ends, but it didn't happen. Let us show you

:51:00.:51:06.

the goal of that won it for the Irish. Suspicions of offside.

:51:06.:51:12.

own, it was just a mistake but the goalkeeper, unfortunately. It is

:51:12.:51:19.

not offside. The referee made a good decision. A fantastic it as

:51:19.:51:24.

well from Brendan may hand, but you must have been so gutted. No oh,

:51:24.:51:29.

because if we had got another goal at the end we would have got the

:51:30.:51:35.

bonus points and we would have won. We would have won the series.

:51:35.:51:43.

are quite upbeat. The guys have left everything on the park. You

:51:43.:51:50.

can't ask any more. A bid you assess their overall performance?

:51:50.:51:54.

Disappointed in the second have. We not - - we did not manage to get

:51:54.:51:59.

the ball down and show that we could play a bit of shinty. Well,

:51:59.:52:03.

thank you very much and commiserations. Let's go to the

:52:03.:52:10.

presentation. Well, it is the Irish who are going

:52:10.:52:18.

to go up first of all to take the honours. Michael Rice is the

:52:18.:52:24.

Ireland captain who will eventually take the honours, but some

:52:24.:52:33.

confusion at the moment about he will lead them up. He has passed up

:52:33.:52:37.

the chance to take the trophy because the captain is someone else.

:52:37.:52:47.

We're waiting for the Irish captain. Michael Rice will eventually join

:52:47.:52:53.

Alan Sutherland to pick up the cup. Don't worry about the Scottish

:52:53.:53:03.
:53:03.:53:04.

shirts, it is just that the Jersey's have been swapped. A bit

:53:04.:53:10.

of Scottish chaos! It is all being dealt with in the best possible

:53:10.:53:17.

nature. The Irish are delighted with their winner. Eventually we

:53:17.:53:27.
:53:27.:53:27.

had the winning captain, Michael Rice of Kilkenny will excepts the

:53:27.:53:37.
:53:37.:53:37.

cat on behalf of the Irish hurdlers who have taken the Test series. - -

:53:37.:53:46.

hurlers. A big reception for the Irish who probably deserved it. An

:53:46.:53:51.

disappointed Scottish team, obviously. They gave it their best

:53:51.:53:58.

shot, but it wasn't quite enough. There is Michael Rice with the

:53:58.:54:08.
:54:08.:54:10.

silverware. The disappointment written all over the Scottish

:54:10.:54:16.

team's faces. They know they had the chances. The inquest will

:54:16.:54:26.
:54:26.:54:33.

starts. Norman Campbell, the manager. The Irish are now coming

:54:33.:54:36.

back for their medals, it seemed that they did not take them on

:54:36.:54:46.
:54:46.:54:46.

their first effort. The inquest on whether it was a goal or not will

:54:46.:54:52.

go on long into the night no doubt. The other match officials now going

:54:52.:55:00.

through taking their awards. Let's go down and rejoin Jonathan, who is

:55:00.:55:08.

with the Irish captain, Michael Rice.

:55:08.:55:14.

Michael, right at the debt you won it. You must be delighted. I am

:55:14.:55:17.

delighted. We don't often get the chance to play for our country and

:55:18.:55:22.

we really wanted to win. In fairness, Scotland started so tough

:55:22.:55:28.

and they were really flying. We knew it was going to be very tough.

:55:29.:55:33.

Agree it had from Brendan May and at the end. Yes, we needed a bit of

:55:33.:55:39.

inspiration. What sort of opponents would the Scots? We have got the

:55:39.:55:46.

goal here. Tammy how you were seeing it. I was just hoping it

:55:46.:55:52.

would not go wide. We knew it was more difficult for the Scots to see

:55:52.:55:59.

if at all like that than it would be for us because of our sticks. We

:55:59.:56:06.

knew that had a chance. Fantastic stuff. You must be so proud to have

:56:06.:56:11.

come over here and won it right at the death. This game is difficult,

:56:11.:56:18.

the hybrid rules, is depressed much yes, it is. Use us all kicking the

:56:18.:56:23.

ball, which is just second nature to us. Michael, well done today and

:56:23.:56:29.

thank you very much. A final thought from me is that arrogant

:56:29.:56:33.

deserted over the two matches. Scotland can take a lot of credit

:56:33.:56:37.

because of their great start, but Ireland prepare with the stronger
