Sean Maitland says that his debut try for Scotland against England is a moment he will never forget.

Scotland winger Sean Maitland has revealed his delight at his try-scoring debut for his country.

The 24-year-old made his first international appearance during the Scots' 38-18 defeat to England at Twickenham on Saturday.

Despite ending up on the losing side of the match, Maitland is still delighted with his performance.

"Despite the result at Twickenham, it was a proud moment for me to take the field for Scotland and to notch up a debut try," Maitland wrote in his column for BBC Sport. "It all happened so fast but to be honest I should have scored earlier.

"Stuart Hogg made a beautiful break and had a simple draw and pass to put me in. He didn't so I've been giving him a lot of stick. It was a very special moment though when I did touch down.

"I couldn't hide my emotions. To score in my first test in front of 80,000 people, it's a moment I'll never forget. I've had great support here in Scotland and my family have let me know that it has made the news in New Zealand."

Scotland host Italy at Murrayfield this weekend in the Six Nations.
