Scotland captain Ross Ford says that after beating Australia earlier this week his team are in a "good place" to go on and win their remaining tour matches and put the disappointments of the Six Nations behind them.
Andy Robinson's team lost all five of their matches to finish with the wooden spoon in the competition in February and March.
But after a tense 9-6 win over the Wallabies on Tuesday, Ford said: "That is all in the past, you have got to look to the future.
"We have looked at what happened and analysed it to death, now it is time to move on and look at the challenges coming up.
"It is a happy, united squad, we all get on together and we all believe that we can keep winning."
Ford admitted that after the victory over Australia, when Greig Laidlaw put over a last-kick penalty to snatch the win, he was too exhausted really to understand the magnitude of the achievement.
"It was a beautiful feeling lifting the Hopetoun Cup at the end, but to be honest I was really too tired to take it all in," he said.
"After that match and all that effort, I was knackered, so it took a few hours to sink in. It was a great feeling, to have come all this way and produced a result like that was special.
"For me too, it was fantastic to get a win as captain. It was not a good feeling after the Six Nations, but now that I have got that monkey away there will be plenty more to come."
Edinburgh hooker Ford was confident his club-mate Laidlaw would win the game at the death, with the Scots initially trying to steer him into drop-goal position before the fly-half's own break set up a big push from the scrum.
"I don't think anybody said anything, we just all knew," he said. "It was one of those things, we had to go for it.
"Confidence was high because we had had a couple of good scrums just before, and we always thought that we could have a go at them. It was not the kind of game in those dreadful weather conditions that was going to be won by a try."
The first scrum could have led to a penalty but there was little doubt about the second, nor about the outcome of the subsequent kick.
"Greig has been knocking these kicks over all season for Edinburgh, so I never had any doubt that he would do the same this time," said Ford.
"He has done it so regularly under pressure that there was never a second's hesitation, I just handed him the ball and left him to it."
The team now move on to Fiji before finishing the tour in Samoa.
