Scotland's only try came from Glasgow Warriors wing/fullback Colin Shaw with Mike Adamson converting.

With a 7-0 lead at half-time, Gemmell was disappointed not to have sealed the win.

He said: "That was a bit of a "get out of jail card” for us. We didn't play well.

"However, our place in the knock-out stages is still in our hands. Argentina have lost their first two games so we need to win our next game to top our pool."

Scotland 7s: Scott Forrest, Chris Fusaro, Richie Vernon, Greig Laidlaw, Colin Shaw, Mike Adamson, James Thomson
Subs: Scott Newlands for Fusaro and Ali Warnock for Shaw
