Scotland hopeful Ruaridh Jackson believes he will go into next season a better player after his experiences in the IRB Nations Cup.
Glasgow star Jackson was handed the No.10 shirt for Scotland A during the development tournament in Romania.
And he repaid new coach Andy Robinson's faith with a solid showing as Scotland won all three matches to claim the trophy.
Aged 21, the Warriors stand-off was the youngest member of the victorious squad but he displayed impressive maturity at stand-off as the A team saw off Russia, Uruguay and France A.
Now Jackson, a surprise inclusion in Scotland's initial 2009 RBS 6 Nations squad, hopes to use his Romanian experiences to good effect next season.
He said: “I felt I learned a lot of different things from working with the different coaches.
“Both Andy (Robinson) and Gregor (Townsend) were great at analysing games and going through little aspects that needed to be worked on.
“I picked up a lot of little pointers which helped to shape my game, so it was a really good learning experience and I found it beneficial.”
