I must admit that for the first 10 minutes of Saturday's game, I thought Ireland were looking like playing the same way as last week.
Once again, the forwards didn't get hold of the ball, and Scotland punished us. But then it suddenly turned around.
Paul O'Connell started carrying and Anthony Foley began tapping the ball over the gain line. The two of them completely changed the impetus of the match and it was game over by half-time.
Malcolm O'Kelly also played really well and is having an excellent season. He was one of the few forwards to perform in the Italy game but he was matched at Murrayfield by O'Connell and Foley. It was really gratifying to see the forwards take control and keep the Scottish pack on the back foot for nearly all the game.
Scotland seemed to have got their house in order in France on the opening weekend but I just wonder whether they read too much into what was ultimately a defeat, even though an unfortunate one.
All week they were being talked up and Ireland were being talked down despite winning in Italy, and maybe Scotland believed the hype.
Their first try was a fantastic effort but they almost took too much out of it. Certainly they kept making mistakes on Saturday which they weren't making in Paris.
Despite our backs playing really well, there's no doubt they'll be strengthened by the return of Brian O'Driscoll and Gordon D'Arcy against England.
Ireland will be pretty confident going into that game but they must beware of an England backlash, although when you look at the England team you have to ask how they're going to kick their points with the confidence as low as it is.
I also think that could affect their try-scoring potential, especially as both tries against France were due to missed tackles by the French rather than brilliant play.
France too have a lot to sort out. I still think their selection is a problem. The French clubs are playing brilliant rugby in the European Cup but the best players aren't being picked for the national team.
Wales were impressive in Italy but it's still to early to talk about a Grand Slam decider in Cardiff. Remember, they need to beat France in Paris while we have to beat both England and France before we can think about the Slam.
But for the excitement of the tournament, I would love it to go down to the wire - as long as Ireland win of course!
