Scotland earn praise from Scott Johnson despite defeat by Wallabies
Scotland coach Scott Johnson took plenty of positives from his side's 21-15 defeat against Australia at Murrayfield.
Johnson admitted he is getting sick of the 'good losers' tag Scotland seem to have picked up in recent months, but he liked the way they bounced back from a mauling at the hands of South Africa last weekend.
The Wallabies were only able to breach their defence twice for tries from Israel Folau and Chris Feauai-Sautia but five penalties from Greig Laidlaw was all Scotland could manage in response.
"I can't quibble with the effort," Johnson said. "I thought the effort was first-class.
"We let ourselves down a little bit with our execution, but there's much to like about what we did.
"There were a couple of young kids on there and they can only get better from here. We're going to get the right people on the pitch, this side will get good character.
"Our kick chase was poor and they put us under pressure, quality opposition. But I'm really pleased with the effort.
"I'm sick of being good losers but there's character in this team and I'm really impressed with what's developing.
"What pleased me most is when they were under pressure they never succumbed. I've always said I want the right people in the room. They have to have the right character and make up and I saw that. But I have mixed emotions about today."Six Nations. Click here to bet.
