Scotland 'will get better' - Russell

Scotland co-captain Finn Russell insists Scotland "will get better" after their 17-13 defeat in Dublin.

"We were really good in phases again, but we gifted them the try in the first half. It sums up this campaign for us - up and down," the 31-year-old told ITV.

"We need to get a lot better mentally for next year's campaign because we can't afford to be up and down. We will get better, but it's tough.

"Ireland are the team to beat. In my opinion they are the best team in the world. The boys stood up today with a performance to be proud of."
