Scotland 7s began their day two Emirates Airline Glasgow 7s campaign with a 31-5 victory over Spain 7s, the biggest margin in the two teams five match history.

The hosts now move into the Bowl semi-finals where they'll take on Kenya 7s at 2.52pm. Kenya beat France 7s 22-7 in their quarter-final.

The Scots commanded their first game of the knock-out rounds far better than they had done on day one and belief had returned to their game plan. They went in at the break 17-0 ahead with tries from Colin Gregor, Colin Shaw and Chris Dean.

Spain then scored the first try of the second period, with Manuel Sainz-Trapaga touching down, before Lee Jones and Michael Maltman scored two impressive tries. Captain Gregor scored three conversions in the match.

Scotland 7s head coach, Stephen Gemmell, said: "We were better today because the players came into this match with a lot of disappointment. We didn't show yesterday what Scotland 7s are all about.

"We have Kenya next and we have to front up and defend well and there is still room for improvement after our first game. We must build momentum into next weekend."

Sub used: Struan Dewar, Michael Maltman and Byron McGuigan
