Scotland and Ulster winger Simon Danielli exorcised his Paris ghosts with a man-of-the-match performance against Italy in the RBS 6 Nations.
Danielli was surprisingly recalled to the Scotland side by coach Frank Hadden in place of fit-again Northampton winger Sean Lamont for the match against France.
And Hadden must have been otherwise pleased with the former Borders wing’s performance as he again selected him in the side for the visit of the Azzurri to the capital on Saturday.
Danielli repaid that faith with a fine all-round display, headlined by a stunning first-half try (left) which set Scotland on their way to a much-needed victory.
Danielli is now ready and able to offer the Scotland squad some inside knowledge of his Ulster team-mates in the Ireland set-up ahead of the game in two weeks time.
He added: " I will certainly be able to pass on information about the Ulster players such as Stevie Ferris, Paddy Wallace and Rory Best.
"The majority of the team is Leinster and Munster, who Glasgow and Edinburgh play against in the league frequently.
"So they’ll be well aware of what they can do. They’ve played well in the Six Nations and came through an intense affair against England.”
