Scotland sevens coach, Stevie Gemmell, today underlined that there will be no room for complacency at the Twickenham leg of the IRB Emirates Airline sevens.

Scotland face Kenya, Samoa and Russia in Pool D of the penultimate leg of the sevens series and the coach has made it clear that they will not be taking anyone for granted.

Gemmell said: "We want to qualify from the group so Kenya is a massive game for us. We've trained very well all week and have carried the momentum well from the Melrose 7s, where we won under the banner of the Scottish Thistles.

Confidence is high, we've analysed all of our opposition and if we apply ourselves and get our bit right then we will qualify from this group but for now the focus remains on day one and game one."
