For the weekend that will be in it.
Saturday, March 15, 1986.
From champions to wooden spoon recipients in the space of a year.
At least Edmund van Esbeck was jovial, he wrote:
Often enough in Ireland’s history of involvement in international rugby, defeat has been a visitor to the door.
So Scotland won and gained a share in the championship with France. Ireland lost and take the wooden spoon, yet, in their play the won the crowds’ admiration, their vociferous support and left us considerably encouraged.
Final score: Ireland 9 Scotland 10
