O'Gara revels in Ireland win

Ronan O'Gara declared himself "far from finished" as he scored 11 points to help Ireland to a 21-18 RBS 6 Nations win over Scotland at Murrayfield.

The fly-half, no longer automatic first choice at number 10 with Jonathan Sexton vying for the position, scored one of Ireland's three tries and added all three conversions as Ireland scraped home.

"I think at this level the margins are very fine, losing by one score to France, beating Italy by one score, winning here by one score," O'Gara told BBC2. "I think we were very good at times today and very poor at times but in the end it's all about winning, and that's what we did."

He added: "I'm far from finished, I really enjoy playing with the boys. There is no better place than Murrayfield to express yourself.

"We had fantastic support today and I think that means a lot to the players."
