Graeme Morrison is determined to justify his Scotland recall by unleashing his full array of attacking skills against France on Sunday.

Morrison was arguably the most controversial selection when head coach Andy Robinson named his starting XV for the RBS 6 Nations opener at Murrayfield.

"Having gone back to Glasgow, it's been great for me to get a bit more ball in my hands and run, and show what I could do with it," said Robinson. "So, I'll be looking to do that on Sunday."

Glasgow centre Morrison, 27, was axed for the final autumn international against Argentina after disappointing with the ball in hand during the victories over Fiji and Australia.

But his excellent club performances since have convinced Robinson to partner him with Warriors team-mate Max Evans this weekend.

Morrison added: "The form that I've had in the past couple of months has given my confidence a real boost.

"I'm glad to be back and I'm going to do everything I can to be part of a win."
