Ali Price learning from Six Nations experience

Ali Price feels losing his place in the Scotland team will prove a valuable learning experience.

The 24-year-old started his country's opening game against Wales but a poor showing saw him dropped to the bench in favour of Greig Laidlaw.

Price then made a number of decent contributions from the bench as the Scots finished third in the table.

He has since returned to Glasgow and will be looking to recapture the form that saw him recognised, most notably with a string of fine showings in the autumn.

Looking ahead, he feels he will learn from his snub after the clash in Cardiff, admitting the experience is something he can learn from.

"The Wales game will only make me a better player, for the experience and the occasion," said Price.

"I'll not dwell on that, it's in the past. I always look to go out there and play the best that I can. Sometimes that doesn't happen and you've got to take it on the chin.

"In terms of how I finished the Six Nations, and the tournament as a whole, especially coming on for the last half an hour against Italy, I really enjoyed it. My confidence was coming back throughout the tournament. I had my role to play off the bench in the last few games.

"I was happy with how I performed when I came on. I was able to put my imprint on the closing stages of games which helps to build the confidence.

"I've played in some big games now in my career and I can build on all of that."
