Scotland's defeat at the hands of England in last week's RBS Six Nations opener has ensured there will be plenty of soul searching in the camp this week as they prepare for the Wales game this weekend.
Last year Scotland enjoyed some great results under the guidance of Frank Hadden and now people are wondering whether they came on the back of the optimism engendered by a new coach.
It can happen, as players are desperate to impress, and people have said that he is now experiencing what life is really like in charge.
However, I don't believe it was the case here - and I still believe Hadden is trying to do the right things with his team.
His cause is not being helped by the players he has to choose from.
The Scottish tight five had a really hard afternoon against England, and this meant that the back row were more anonymous than they might usually be.
Likewise, Hadden's midfield never offered any great threat to England, and Scotland's back three never looked like scoring tries.
The script was clearly written for Jonny Wilkinson to return to action and put in that kind of performance which we all know he is capable of.
Sadly from a Scottish point of view, there was little they could do to stop it from materialising.
The team do have plenty of guts and spirit, as they never gave up, and this at least is the basis of something for Hadden to build on against Wales, but they will need more than that to win consiste
