Matt Williams ended the most important week of his eight months in charge of Scotland with a headache - and that is just the way he wants it.
Victories last week over NSW Country by the development side and then Samoa in Friday's Test proved to Williams, and to his doubters, that Scotland's next generation are beginning to step forward.
Had Scotland followed on from the Queensland hammering with consecutive setbacks in Wollongong and Wellington, the future would look bleak as the development squad head into their final match of the tour, against the NSW Waratahs.
As it is, things could hardly have gone any better - barring the serious injuries to Tom Philip and Chris Paterson - and Williams now faces exactly the dilemma he wanted to create on tour.
With the two Tests against Australia to come, 10 players must be cut from the squad after tomorrow's match against the Waratahs but Williams and his assistant coach Todd Blackadder don't yet know who.
"We are starting to get nice headaches," he said.
"The three young second rowers (Craig Hamilton, Alastair Kellock and Scott MacLeod), have all been absolutely outstanding.
"Scott Murray and Stuart Grimes, who played particularly well against Samoa the other night, are looking over their shoulders at these young players coming through.
"But we can't keep all of them. Someone has got to go home and how we split it is very hard.
"All of a sudden we have some nice issues, some hard decisions whereas at the beginning of the tour we didn't have them.
"That is why the tour has been a great success. I have got to know the players, see how they respond, see how much improvement they have got in them. All that side has been really beneficial."
