Edinburgh flanker Luke Crosbie insisted that Scotland are determined to prove themselves as genuine contenders for the Guinness Six Nations title, aiming to redeem a disappointing World Cup performance.

The Dark Blues made an exit from the World Cup in France last year in the opening round following defeats to South Africa and Ireland that saw them finish third in Pool B.

Nevertheless, the 26-year-old believes the squad has enough talent and wants the upcoming Six Nations tournament to showcase it.

“As a group we know we’re a world-class team but we need to put those results on the board in the Six Nations,” he said.

“We’ve taken our learnings from the World Cup, we’ve processed that individually and collectively.

“Now it’s time to prove to the nation what we know ourselves – that we’re a world-class team. It’s about getting the results, it’s as simple as that.

“We know the talent we have in our group individually. We know that on our day we’re one of the best in the world. Now it’s about putting that into practice.

“We look at the quality of our camp already, everyone has shown an appetite to show what they can do as an individual and as a collective.

“We fell a bit short at the World Cup so as a collective we want to get better. It’s business time for us.”

Scotland will kick-start their Six Nations campaign with a clash against Wales at Principality Stadium on 3rd February.
