Scotland 7s were unable to back up their opening Glasgow 7s win against Portugal this afternoon, losing out to their historic rivals, England, 29-7 in their second match of the day.
England dominated the game from start to finish and other than a converted Scott Riddell try the hosts barely had a say in the match. For their opponents Jeff Williams and Dan Norton both scored a brace and Christian Lewis-Pratt added one additional try and a conversion.
Scotland 7s head coach, Stephen Gemmell, said: "We didn't perform in this match and knowing we could have done more is what hurts the most. I picked the team that I believed could win but they didn't function to their potential.
"However, the beauty of sevens is you have to get back on the horse quickly. Our next game will be these players' biggest game ever, New Zealand at home with our HSBC Sevens World Series core status at stake. So we have to come back strong.
"We'll put this result behind us now and look forward to our last match today."
