Matt Williams ended the most important week of his eight months in charge of Scotland with a headache - and that is just the way he wants it.
Victories last week over NSW Country by the development side and then Samoa in Friday's Test proved to Williams, and to his doubters, that Scotland's
next generation are beginning to step forward.
Had Scotland followed on from the Queensland hammering with consecutive setbacks in Wollongong and Wellington, the future would look bleak as the
development squad head into their final match of the tour, against the NSW Waratahs on Tuesday.
As it is, things could hardly have gone any better - barring the serious injuries to Tom Philip and Chris Paterson - and Williams now faces exactly
the dilemma he wanted to create on tour.
With the two Tests against Australia to come, 10 players must be cut from the squad after Tuesday's match against the Waratahs but Williams and his
assistant coach Todd Blackadder don't yet know who.
