Scottish Borders rugby player Ross Ford has spoke of his delight, after Scotland beat France in the Six Nations for the first time in 10 years.
Four players from the south of Scotland were involved: Ford, Greig Laidlaw who captained the side, Stuart Hogg, and Alex Dunbar from Dumfries.
Hogg was particularly impressive, scoring a first-half try, kicking a huge 54-metre penalty, and flicking a pass over his head to set up Scotland's final try.
Ross Ford, from Kelso, says the team is heading in the right direction:
Local lad Greg Laidlaw has been named Captain of the Scotland team for the Six Nations.
The team was announced today, with Geoff Cross, Ross Ford, Alex Dunbar, and Stuart Hogg also representing the Borders on the Scotland side.
Today, the Scotland and England Rugby teams for the Six Nations will be announced.
Both teams will draw from talent bred in the Borders region.
Cumbrian Stuart Lancaster is signed on as England coach, and players Greg Laidlaw, Ross Ford, Stuart Hogg, and Geoff Cross are among those expected to be selected in the Scotland squad.
