Jason White looks ahead

Glasgow's Jason White, who scored his first Six Nations try on Saturday in the win over Italy with a typically powerful first-half run, feels there are better things to come for him and his team-mates.

"Personally, I am quite pleased with how things have gone,'' he admitted. "I wasn't involved in the first game, I came on against France, did quite well against Wales and England and then again against Italy. I think being able to perform at this level comes with a little more experience. I now have 20-odd caps and am maybe not in awe of the international scene as I once was.

I am more comfortable with the pace and pressure that comes with international rugby. I was delighted to score my first try in this competition. It is always nice to run over a wee stand-off and score.'' Jason added: "As a team, it would have been a massive downer if we had lost to Italy. It is nice to finish on a high note, score some tries and get a victory in front of the home crowd. This sets us up well for the summer tour of South Africa. We have got an awful lot of rugby to be played before the World Cup and it was vital we maintained momentum.

In the Six Nations we have learned that we have to set our standards high. There is much more to come from this team in the future.'' Hopefully Jason will do this as a Glasgow player. He has been identified as a possible target for Zurich Premiership club Sale Sharks.

Gordon Bulloch looked ahead to the World Cup and believes Scotland can do well. The hooker said: "The focus is now completely on the World Cup and there is a lot of hard work to be done between now and then. We have a lot of good young players knocking on the door just now and they will be pressing for places in the World Cup squad. Now we have to concentrate on getting things right for the World Cup and with good preparation and a bit of luck we can make an impact in Australia."

Aberdeen GSFP captain, Rod Seib, has been linked with a possible move to Glasgow Warriors next season. The Australian has been in outstanding form for Aberdeen this season and has already played for the Glasgow back-up team.
