Graeme Morrison notes the 'special' atmosphere within Scots squad

Graeme Morrison believes there is "something special" brewing in the Scotland squad after Saturday's victory over Samoa earned Andy Robinson's men a fifth win out of six Tests to complete 2010 on a high.

Glasgow Warriors centre Morrison was bearing the scars of a third physical confrontation in succession and reflected on a successful 2010 while looking ahead to the RBS Six Nations, which for Scotland begin against France in Paris on 5 February.

The 28-year-old said: "We knew it was going to be really tough and it certainly was - I've got a bit of a headache from some of the hits that were coming my way. It was great Jacko (Ruaridh Jackson] managed to get the kick at the end there and we're delighted to win."

Scotland have now beaten Australia, Ireland, Argentina (twice), South Africa and Samoa in little more than a year, with Morrison an integral figure in the successes.

He added: "I believe the group of players we've got is really special. We get on so well and if we keep on improving then I believe we have got something special in the tank.

"But we do need to keep on improving and we do need to keep on challenging each other. It's great there's a lot of competition now in the squad and we're just looking forward now to getting back together for the Six Nations."
