Frank Hadden insists his backline will soon start hitting their stride and make Scotland a genuine threat on the world scene.
The former Edinburgh coach has presided over Scotland's most impressive RBS 6 Nations Championship campaign this Millennium, less than a year after taking charge.
An opening-weekend victory over France at Murrayfield was followed by success in Edinburgh against world champions England.
Defeats at the hands of Wales in Cardiff - when Scott Murray was dismissed in the first half - and then narrowly against Ireland in Dublin questioned Scotland's ability to perform away from home but they dug deep to grind out a 13-10 victory over Italy at the Stadio Flaminio, their first success on the road since 2002.
Indeed, the first half against France apart, Scotland have struggled to produce any fluency in the backs, who - under the tutelage of 1997 British & Irish Lion Alan Tait - have instead offered a defensive line which is the equal of any in the world on current form.
Hadden, a stand-off in his playing days, admits there is room for improvement but is in no doubt his backline has the talent to prosper - and will soon start showing it.
He said: ''People think that when you make handling errors that you should stop handling but the fact is we haven't done too much attacking over the past few weeks.
''There is a lot more to come from our attacking game and we've really only scratched the
surface with it.
''There won't be a problem when we have had time to work on it in training but more importantly in a match. There's no doubt there's more to come.
''The handling could be better but I expected that wee bit of rust because we haven't done too much of it recently.''
Former PE teacher Hadden admits challenging for the title was never in his thoughts prior to the championship and announced himself content with the progress which has been made.
The aim now is to develop the back play in South Africa this summer ahead of the autumn internationals, the 2007 RBS 6 Nations and ultimately the World Cup in France.
Hadden said: ''I'm quite comfortable with where we are in terms of the progress we wanted to make. There's a launch pad for the future there now.
''At the start of this championship I didn't think we could win it - what we wanted to do was win games and make progress.
''We've laid a few foundation stones to build on. We've done enough this year to make people believe that we're a good side and I would imagine there will be a lot of people not relishing playing Scotland now.''
