Scotland are aiming high to make it well in the Six Nations tournament that is going to be held soon. “Last year, we felt we underperformed,” said the head coach.

“Whilst we were pleased with how we played in patches in games, we didn’t deliver results. We made mistakes and were punished.

“If you look through history, Scotland have always been able to produce one-off performances. What we want is to be able to do it week after week.”

The Scots lost their first three games in the championship last season, Wales coming from 24-14 down five minutes from time to win, but avoided the wooden spoon by drawing with England and then beating Ireland in Dublin.


Edinburgh were defeated by Scarlets in the latest Scottish rugby union match. Tries from full-back Morgan Stoddart and centre Jonathan Davies combined with 11 points from fly-half Rhys Priestland were enough for the Welsh.

Talismanic full-back Chris Paterson notched all the hosts’ points courtesy of a converted try and three penalties.

However, Scarlets took the points to move up to second in the table.

It was the visitors who made the brighter start and they had an early try-scoring chance.
