Scotland flanker Alasdair Strokosch believes his move to Gloucester has made him a better player.
The powerful forward joined Gloucester from Edinburgh two seasons ago and has been a big hit in the west country.
He has established himself as one of the biggest hitters in the Guinness Premiership and has forced his way into the national set-up on a regular basis.
Although then Scotland coach Frank Hadden omitted him from the opening weekend of the RBS 6 Nations in February, he was recalled for the second match against France and stayed in the team for the rest of the championship.
Strokosch told www.rbs6nations.com: "The move to Gloucester has gone well for me. People didn't really know too much about me in England before I moved there but it's been a good experience for me.
"I'm playing regularly in the Premiership, which is a tough league, and that has improved my all-round game."
The RBS 6 Nations Championship 2015 was not poised to go down as one of the more "vintage" Championships, though there was great anticipation as the action headed into its final day. What transpired was something that nobody could foresee: "The Greatest Day in Rugby's Greatest Championship."
