Scotland captain Kelly Brown says he is looking forward to returning to club rugby with Saracens after a disappointing Six Nations campaign.
The Scots finished second to bottom, losing four out of their five matches, and Brown was also devastatingly axed from the squad for the huge Calcutta Cup clash with England.
Speaking ahead of Saracen's one-off Wembley showdown against Harlequins on Saturday, Brown admitted: "It's definitely been an interesting Six Nations for me. It's been up and down.
"But I've always said that the Saracens environment is a really nice place to come back to and I can't wait to get back out there with the boys again.
"[Wembley's] going to be great. As soon as you walk out and see the stadium, it's an inspiring place and we're really looking forward to the weekend."
Despite Scotland's massive underachievement in the Six Nations, Brown is keen to point out the positives and remains upbeat over the team's ability to compete at next year's World Cup.
He declared: "I think the good thing is the number of guys who have come in, done well and got a run of games.
"We know we need to be a lot more consistent because we are able to raise ourselves for certain individual games, but it's about making sure we're at that level time and time again.
"It's something we've got to improve on [before the World Cup]. We know that it's really nailing a consistently high level of performance, because if we can do that then we're a good side and we can challenge anyone."
But for the time being, Brown is only focusing on his club rugby, with Saracens still challenging in the Premiership and the Heineken Cup.
He said: "I think we just need to look at it a game at a time, but it's very exciting to be in the latter stages.
"The first seven or eight months of the season are all about setting yourself up for the final sprint, so we've done that and we've done that well.
"All the guys get on well as friends as well as a team. It's all about sharing all of these experiences and about just making some memories, and hopefully we can make some pretty good ones over the next few months."
