Obviously it was disappointing to lose to Wales but overall I thought there were a lot more positives than negatives to come out of the Scottish performance.
The Scottish players dug really deep and I thought they looked the stronger side at the end of the game, despite having played 60 minutes of the game with 14 players on the pitch.
Scottish teams in the past would have given up the ghost, but this time they really dug deep and fully deserved the two tries they scored at the end.
Scott Murray's sending off was critical, and I thought it was the result of a bit of a cheap shot by Ian Gough. Scott's reaction was instinctive rather than pre-meditated and I hope this is reflected in the ban he receives.
There's a growing sense of unity around the Scottish squad at the moment and the close ups of Jason White rallying the rest of the team were great to see, and it's something we've not had for quite a few years.
As far as I'm concerned, the Wales game provided more evidence that the win over France was not just a flash in the pan, and there is good reason for optimism going into the England game.
If there's one team in the world the Scots will raise their game for it is England. The crowd will know the players have given everything in their opening two games and I'm sure they will get behind them.
No-one can ask any more from the players than that they are prepared to die for the shirt, and in the last two games it's really looked that way. If they go into the England game with the same attitude there's a genuine chance of an upset.
