Vern Cotter has said that Scotland showed "more explosiveness" in their final Rugby World Cup warm-up match against France.
The Scots were beaten 19-16, despite having led 9-6 at half time at Stade de France on Saturday.
The team's coach told BBC Sport: "It certainly went up a level and was a very physical game against a very aggressive defence. It was a big game with some pleasing things but things we need to work on.
"We're getting better. We got a reminder that we need to work on our line-out. I thought our scrum was better. I think we're showing agility on the field, both mental and physical. We're lining up for the arm wrestle, which is good.
"We're showing a little bit more explosiveness around the contact areas but we need to develop a bit more confidence. We want to do really well in this World Cup and the players are determined."
Scotland face Japan in Gloucester in their opening match of the World Cup later this month.
