I was delighted with the contribution of the Glasgow players on Scotland duty against France.

Ryan Grant had probably his best game of this year's RBS Six Nations in the Scotland front-row and it was pity he sustained a hip injury in the process.

Sean Lamont will miss Scotland's final match after injuring ligaments in his right knee against the French, and is likely to be out of action for several weeks.

I thought Stuart Hogg had an excellent game, took his try really well and was very lively at full-back where he also underlined just how adept he is with the boot.

I was also impressed with the overall performance of Duncan Weir. Some people have latched on to his intercepted pass which led to the French try but apart from that Duncan had a sound game and got the backline moving well.

It did bring memories flooding back to me of one of my most painful moments in a Scotland shirt when I threw an interception against the same opposition back in 1994, that all but handed victory to the French in one fell swoop.

On Saturday, Duncan bounced back from his error and showed a great deal of character in landing a long-range penalty goal that moved Scotland into the lead as the game entered the final minutes.

His experience from Saturday and from throughout this year's Six Nations will unquestionably make him a better player.

This week we were delighted to announce that Duncan has signed up for two more years at Glasgow. His drop-goal against Italy, to give us our first win in Rome in eight years, was executed with real composure and underlined that Duncan can operate at the highest level of the game.

It's worth reminding people that Duncan is just 22 and improving every day, both technically and tactically, thanks to his superb work ethic.

With his growing maturity, Duncan's ability to lead the attack - at international and club level - is also beginning to become a real strength of his game. What's more Duncan is a proud Glaswegian and has a big future at Warriors.

Our next game is not until Saturday week, when the Scarlets come to Scotstoun, but preparations for that game are ramping up.

We were delighted to welcome Al Kellock, our captain, back to full training this week after his recovery from a torn bicep.

Al will hopefully enjoy himself in club action with Ayr this weekend as he looks to get some playing time under his belt.

Peter Horne trained with the team for the first time this season and he is also close to returning to rugby.

Similarly Sean Maitland has made a good recovery from the knee injury he suffered in the opening match of the Six Nations, and is a week or two away from playing.

Clearly we won't know just who we will get back from Scotland duty until the dust has settled on the final RBS Six Nations game of the season, at Cardiff, on Saturday.

But quite a few of our international contingent have accrued a lot of high-intensity game time in recent weeks and the team selection for Scarlets will very much have to take that into account.

Scarlets play Ulster this weekend in a rearranged fixture, so we know that they will be match-sharp when they come to Scotstoun on the 22nd.

How we train over the next few days will be very important in deciding how we are going to play and also who will be wearing the Warriors' shirts.
