Sean Lamont is targeting a bit of Scottish Six Nations rugby history, starting on Saturday.

Scotland have never beaten England, Ireland and Italy in the same season since the competition originated in 1999.

But 92-cap winger Lamont believes that a triumphant flourish is possible after near misses against France and Wales.

It’s a big ask as Scotland have only ever won two from three against that trio of rivals once.

But Lamont insists: “We need to win this game – and every other game left in the Championship. It starts this weekend.

Italy always seem to target us, just because of where we are in the standings of this tournament.

“But we are a different team than we have been in the past. We’re going in the right direction and now we’re not very far away.

“We can’t let those narrow defeats affect us. We need to keep our confidence high and keep going forward.”
