Glasgow Warriors wing Rory Lamont has urged his side to continue their end-of-season form when they start RaboDirect PRO12 action next month.
Gregor Townsend's men were in excellent form in the second half of 2012/13 as they came close to making the final, ultimately losing to Leinster.
This season Lamont is eager for Glasgow to start well to give themselves the best possible chance of success when it comes to the business end.
"Glasgow ultimately suffered last season for their slow start," Lamont revealed to The Scotsman.
"When the attack got going and they clicked in the second half of the season some of the rugby was the best I've ever seen from a Scottish team, but everybody was really disappointed with the Heineken Cup.
"They had Northampton for the taking but didn't quite have the belief to finish them off. Had that game come later I think they would have won it.
"There is a lot of talent coming through and with guys like Al Kellock and my brother [Sean] keeping the younger guys' feet on the ground I think they'll relish kicking off the Heineken in Toulon.
"I hope they go on to have a really successful season."
