Robinson urges fans to fill Murrayfield for Six Nations opener

Andy Robinson says a packed Murrayfield would help support Scotland in their opening Six Nation’s game against France.

Scotland’s head coach Andy Robinson is hopeful that fans will pack out Murrayfield and show support for their country as the Six Nations kicks off in February with Scotland's opening game against France.

Despite being disappointed with the result at last weekend’s Test match against Argentina, Robinson believes the foundations of the team are now in place as they look towards the 2010 tournament.

“Disappointed to end up at 9-6,” he said. “I thought we controlled the game pretty well in the first half – didn’t take the opportunities that we created.” He added: “It is about being able to control the game throughout the whole 80 minutes.

“We have to work hard in every game we play and we have the ability to beat anybody on the day.” He added: “But overall, I’m pleased with the fact that we have won two games and we are in a position to win the third.”

Despite beating Fiji and Australia in the recent autumn Tests, Robinson is now focused on getting the team to be more clinical in their approach and plans to work on four main areas over the coming months.

“I think we need to improve right across the board,” he said. “Leadership has gone well but again we are looking for that to improve in the next couple of months, individual skills, the fitness of players, the game understanding. So that will be the four areas that we are targeting.”

Despite acknowledging the need to work on key aspects of the game, the Scotland coach says his team will enter the biggest competition in northern-hemisphere rugby with belief.

“We should be confident going into that, we have got belief amongst the squad.” He added: We are not fearing anybody but it is about having a huge start against France and having a Murrayfield crowd that are there ready to support the team and get behind the team.”

Scotland’s Six Nations opener will take place at Murrayfield on Sunday February 7, 2010 at 15.00
