Scots moving forward

Stuart Bathgate talks to former Scotland fullback Gavin Hastings about the steps forward taken this summer in Argentina in The Scotsman.

""For them to follow up a great opening Test victory with another shows that they have mentally crossed that divide. I think that this was a very, very significant step forward.

"I sent a text straight away to Scotland coach Andy Robinson, saying much the same thing. I've seen him since then and reiterated that. I think it's great and I think the guys will take a huge amount of confidence on the back of that."

"Scotland won last month's first Test 24-16, then followed it up a week later with a 13-9 win to record their first ever series victory in the Southern Hemisphere. That compared with back-to-back matches in the Autumn Tests at Murrayfield last year, when Robinson's team claimed a historic win over Australia, but then lost to the Pumas a week later."
