WOMEN'S SIX NATIONS CHAMPIONSHIP:Scotland Women 15 Ireland Women 5, MurrayfieldScorers: Scotland: Tries: Rimma Petlevannaya, Mel Christie; Con: Paula Chalmers; Pen: ChalmersIreland: Try: Rachel Boyd
Phillip Doyle's outfit - who lost their tournament opener in Spain last Saturday - were undone by two well-worked Scottish tries in either half, and the kicking of scrum-half Paula Chalmers.
The sister of former Scotland great Craig, Chalmers kicked them into a 25th-minute lead before openside Boyd touched down for a brief 5-3 lead.
Back came the Scots and a try before the break from fly-half Rimma Petlevannaya, and a second on 53 minutes from winger Mel Christie gave the home side the spoils.
The evening match - who followed the men's Six Nations clash - marked the Test debut of 26-year-old Navan second row Orla Brennan.
* Brennan was one of a number of Doyle's squad who were at O'B Sport headquarters in Dublin last Monday, as the sports company officially launched their sponsorship of the Women's side.
