"We would like to think it is a good omen for the real World Cup," said Scottish team organiser Douglas Roberts. "We wish Jason White and the squad all the best for their remaining games against Romania, New Zealand, and Italy."

To take the lawyers' trophy the Scots won all four of their matches. They beat Wales 12-7, Italy 33-12, England 12-5, and Italy again, the second time by 10-7.
