Scotland are gearing up for the Emirates Airline Edinburgh 7s this weekend which sees the abbreviated game return to the home of Scottish Rugby for the climax of the global IRB series.

Scotland have the arduous task of taking on three southern hemisphere giants in the pool B "group of death" in a tournament that sees over 20 international matches played each day

Australia, South Africa and Argentina stand in Scotland's way of a sixth consecutive quarter final but having beating all three of their opponents so far this year, the Scots have cause for optimism.

Under the guidance of Scotland's most successful sevens coach, Stephen Gemmell, the Scots reached their fifth cup quarter-final at Twickenham last weekend with convincing victories over Kenya (17-5) and Russia (31-7).

The Scots will be looking to build on the success of the two excellent victories and the performances put in against Fiji and South Africa to go one step further and reach the elusive semi-final spot infront of the home fans.

The tournament runs from 9am - 6.30pm on Saturday and 10am - 6pm on Sunday.

Scotland kick-off times
11:46am Scotland v Australia
2:30pm Scotland v South Africa
5:58pm Scotland v Argentina
