WHEN Steve Tandy was unveiled as Scotland’s new defense coach last December, it hardly sparked a run of excitement The Welshman had been drafted from the Waratahs, who had just finished 12th out of 15 teams in the Southern Hemisphere Super Rugby competition, after spending six unspectacular years as head coach of the Ospreys

After the trauma of Scotland’s early exit from the World Cup, it was not, at first glance, a date to raise hopes that better days could loom but 11 months, it was is long in professional sport, and while fans should be wary of getting carried away by the five-game winning streak on the rebound leading up to this afternoon’s clash against France, there’s no denying that there is a solidity to the way this Scottish team operates when they don’t have the ball that was clearly absent before

“I’m just thinking of confidence,” Tandy replied, when asked what the key difference was between the team that spat four tries against Ireland and Japan during the World Cup, and the who has conceded an average of one try per game in seven games since

“When I looked at the boys before I got the job and talked to [head coach] Gregor [Townsend], there are some really good defensemen in the squad, they’re in good shape and have a good appetite It’s a great group to work with, they train really hard and they love to defend

“So I think it’s just about gaining a little confidence, changing the stimulus and realizing how important it is to the game. Defense can benefit on offense, and Scotland are known to play some really good football Hopefully when we defend it’s a chance to get the ball back so we can complete our offense

« We have a little fun with that too. Every day we take a look at this little detail of defense and attack, and how to improve. They’re not happy, and I don’t think we can be, although it was a really good Six Nations for us Ultimately if we’re going to be better and really push performance we have to keep setting standards and growing as we go, which we do It’s really nice for me as a coach  »

Scotland will face a real test of their defensive courage this afternoon, and Tandy doesn’t expect it to be any easier as Romain Ntamack, the amazing French standoff, is injured

« Matthieau Jalibert [Ntamack’s replacement] is an incredible player, I saw him play in Europe and he is a great footballer, » said the coach

«  Like Ntamack, he has a great kicking game, he takes the ball all the way to the line, and if you start focusing on one person when France has threats at all levels, you’re on a rope pitch It’s more about how we defend ourselves as a whole and we impose ourselves on the game

“They’ve definitely grown up and are really one of the best teams in the world because they have a bit of everything – they can unload, they’ve got a solid set piece, they know how to win games and they’ve got it. also won big matches at the Six Nations

« There is real confidence in their team and it is also a young team You look at the age, there is growth in the France team and they are confident in what they are doing »
