Scotland were disappointing against Italy. They were trying to play the right sort of game but from the wrong positions.
They had to play unorthodox and wide but to take those risks so early in the game and from those field positions was a little unwise. It showed a lack of maturity.
After going 21 points down they started playing the scoreboard and not the clock and they started playing catch-up rugby too early in the game.
It is not the right decision to make when you've got statistically the best goalkicker in world rugby, in Chris Paterson, and you are forgoing opportunities to keep the scoreboard ticking and instead kicking for touch to try and score tries.
Scotland went into their shells and started playing a more conventional game which was meat and drink to the Italians who were very much up to the match.
When Paterson moved to fly-half the try he scored was quite breath-taking. Fly-half has been such a problem position for Scotland in the past three or four years it may be worth giving him an extended run there.
They will want to put things right in the next match and they have a great opportunity against Ireland.
It's a really difficult game for the Scots next to pick it up after that one. It will be a real test of character.
If Ireland come to Murrayfield a little bit complacent, thinking they are going to roll over Scotland, and Scotland produce a good performance, it might be close.
