Sean Maitland: 'Just the beginning'

Scotland wing Sean Maitland believes the 34-10 Six Nations victory over Italy can lead to bigger and better things for Scott Johnson's team.

Maitland, who was making his home debut on Saturday, set up one of Scotland's four tries as they bounced back in style from their opening defeat to England at Twickenham.

"For 80 minutes we showed what we can do as a team," said the New Zealand-born back.

"It's just the beginning for us, there is definitely a lot more potential to unleash.

"We had a lot of things to prove as a team to Scotland and thankfully the team was given another chance to put on the jersey again this week and we repaid the coaches.

"It was time for action. We had talked a lot but we delivered.

"We have got to take a lot of confidence out of that. We have got two more home games in a row and that will be massive for us. We will just keep building.

"The last week training-wise was really good, the boys were on fire and took that into the game. So hopefully we can continue that."
