Scotland coach Andy Robinson wants to see his young team grow in confidence on their tour to the southern hemisphere.
The Scots, humbled in this year’s Six Nations with five losses, take on Australia, Fiji and Samoa next month looking to build on green shoots of progress in the squad.
Robinson said: “It’s always enjoyable to go on tour and see the squad working day-in day-out, working together and having some social time together too.
“We leave on the back of a very disappointing Six Nations so we want to build some confidence in the way we play and get some wins. That’s the focus.
“We’ve got a number of young players going on the trip and we have to introduced them to Scottish rugby and what it means to play for Scotland. We have to generate a Scottish spirit which is prevalent in the way we play.”
Robinson has a number of uncapped players in the pool, including Dutch wing Tim Visser who becomes eligible through residency on June 12.
Other new names to the international scene include Edinburgh’s Tom Brown and Glasgow forward Rob Harley.
Robinson said a natural change of personnel is happening and he wants to see them start to gel quickly.
The head coach said: “You look at players like Simon Webster, Simon Danielli and Chris Paterson who have dropped out now, you have that one side, and then Tom Brown coming through, Chris Hogg and Tim Visser, so it’s that movement that happens with players.
“It is great to have young players who are pushing for places and playing well. We want to see consistency from them.”
