Scotland captain Ross Ford says that after beating Australia earlier this week his team are in a "good place" to go on and win their remaining tour matches and put the disappointment of the Six Nations behind them.
Andy Robinson's team lost all five of their matches to finish with the wooden spoon in the competition in February and March.
But after a tense 9-6 win over the Wallabies on Tuesday, Ford said: "That is all in the past, you have got to look to the future. We have looked at what happened and analysed it to death, now it is time to move on and look at the challenges coming up. It is a happy, united squad - we all get on together and we all believe that we can keep winning."
Ford admitted that after the victory over Australia, when Greig Laidlaw put over a last-kick penalty to snatch the win, he was too exhausted really to understand the magnitude of the achievement.
"It was a beautiful feeling lifting the Hopetoun Cup at the end, but to be honest I was really too tired to take it all in," he added.
"After that match and all that effort, I was knackered, so it took a few hours to sink in. It was a great feeling - to have come all this way and produced a result like that was special.
"For me too, it was fantastic to get a win as captain. It was not a good feeling after the Six Nations, but now that I have got that monkey away there will be plenty more to come."
The team now move on to Fiji before finishing the tour in Samoa.
