Scotland look to the past ahead of crunch game with England
Scotland are looking to their recent past as an incentive for their make-or-break World Cup game with England in Auckland on Saturday.
After their heartbreaking 12-13 loss to Argentina on Sunday, Scotland were casting their minds back to their loss to the All Blacks in November 2010 as a reminder of what they could achieve.
A week after that loss, they turned around and beat South Africa.
"We know what we need to do and there is total trust in the whole squad that mentally and physically they are able to rise to the challenge," said Scotland coach Andy Robinson.
Robinson said the team had dealt with the frustration of Sunday's loss, but had gone into it aware that the encounter could be a tight affair.
"I could see us potentially losing the game through penalties that we would give away, or dropped goals that Argentina would score because that was the nature of the game," he said.
"But I thought we were pretty in control of the game defensively and to concede a try in the manner that we did was just a bit of a shock. It was to everybody. It was a shock to the system.
"Today (Tuesday) is really the first day that we now start focusing on England and there is a real vibrancy about the team.
"Everyone understands that it is still in our control and we've got to go out and put in a top performance against England."
Robinson, who coached England from 2004 to 2006, was quick to highlight the quality in Martin Johnson's team.
"They won the Six Nations and they have got a good blend to the way they play," added Robinson.
"They have conceded but one try in the tournament so far, so they have defended well and they are a well-organised side."
Bonus points could yet be crucial in deciding the two Pool B qualifiers, but Robinson said they had not entered into his thinking.
"The first thing we have got to do is win the game. And that is how we will approach this, we have got to look at how we will win the game," he said.
Scotland will name their team on Thursday, by which time the state of injuries in their camp should be clearer.
Forwards Richie Gray, Kelly Brown and Jim Hamilton all suffered injuries against Argentina but are expected to be fit for England.
