It was a much-needed victory for Hadden after the meek surrender against New Zealand’s second string and the failure to convert a 10-0 half-time lead into a win against South Africa last weekend.
Hadden said: “There’s no doubt there was a time when that could have been a very awkward encounter for us.
“The combination of the narrow pitch and the weather conditions which made it very difficult to handle the ball, and it might have been a very difficult day for us had it not been for the platform we created in the scrummage and in the contact area.
“Ultimately we were too physical for the Canadians and with the ball that we got we were efficient and deserved to get the scoreboard ticking over the way we did.
“It was an opportunity for the players to vent some of the frustration of the past two weeks and we were delighted to set the record straight after two tough matches.
“It was good to win this week, put away a few tries and play with a bit of freedom to put ourselves in a good position for the forthcoming Six Nations.
“I think we’ve made some progress in these November Tests. It would have been easier for people to understand that we had made progress had we beaten South Africa but I certainly feel a lot happier in certain areas of the game.
“That’s certainly true of the competition for places in so many positions and I think we were especially physical in all three weeks. People are going to find a different Scotland team these days. That physicality made it difficult for the Canadians.”
