Scotland 17, Papua New Guinea 12
Scotland recorded their first win of the Wellington Sevens against Papua New Guinea today.
Having reached the half-way mark 5-12 down with only a single score from Border Reivers scrum-half Calum Cusiter to show for their efforts, the Scots came from behind to steal the victory.
Cusiter’s Border Reivers team-mate Mark Robertson touched down along with Ben Addison to complete the comeback.
Head coach Stephen Gemmell said: “I'm really proud of the boys today. We set out to get a victory and they really dug deep to get it.”
