Thousands of supporters descended on the capital yesterday and both sets of fans seemed to enjoy the opening Six Nations weekend.

For the Scots it was a disappointing afternoon from the rugby perspective, shipping a heavy defeat with England on the horizon next weekend, but it didn’t seem to dampen spirits.

Quite a number of the travelling supporters donned their traditional kilts, with some getting more of an eyeful than they had bargained for.

Dublin was a sea of green before and after kick-off and if the pictures are anything to go by, it was a god weekend had by most.
