NORTH Berwick rugby starlet Liz Musgrove helped Scotland Women to an historic win over their Irish counterparts in Dublin on Saturday.

Musgrove and her team-mates won away from home for the first time in 12 years with a 15-12 triumph at Donnybrook.

An early penalty from scrum-half Sarah Law gave Shade Munro’s side a 3-0 lead at the interval before two second-half tries secured victory, as the Scots picked up a first championship win away from home since 2006.

It also saw them avenge a last-minute defeat to the Irish at Broadwood a year ago – a game that featured North Berwick’s Megan Gaffney on the right wing for the Scots.

Musgrove has taken over the position from Gaffney, who put her international career on hold to go travelling, and was delighted to have been involved.

In a post on Instagram on Monday, she said it was “unreal”, saying: “What a feeling! Unreal to be part of yesterday’s win against Ireland. Massive shift from everybody in the squad.”

The win propelled Shade Munro’s side to their highest-ever place of 11th in the world rankings.

Meanwhile, there was disappointment for another ex-North Berwick High School pupil, Rory Darge, as Scotland’s U20s fell to a late 30-25 defeat, also at Donnybrook on Friday evening.

Darge, 18, made his first start for the U20s but a late try from Jack O’Sullivan sealed victory for the home side.

And at the Aviva Stadium on Saturday afternoon, Huw Jones spurned a glorious scoring chance as Scotland fell to a 28-8 defeat to the Irish, who were crowned Six Nations champions after France’s win over England.

He reflected on a “very frustrating day at the office”, adding: “Fair play to Ireland, they took their chances and are deserved Six Nations champions.”

The trio will now turn their attentions to games against Italy this weekend.

The U20s kick things off in Bari on Friday, before the men play at Rome’s Stadio Olimpico on Saturday. The women then play on Sunday.
