Video: Scotland Women 7S Make It 3/3 On Day One

With three-out-of-three wins, 22 tries, 12 conversions, 134 points for and only five conceded, it was a relatively good first day at the office for Scotland Women 7s at the FIRA Euro qualifier in Belgium.

Head coach Scott Forrest said: "It's been a successful day overall and we're where we need to be at the end of day one - we had two very good performances and one not so good to start, but we pulled ourselves back in the second half."

Scotland opened the tournament this morning with a 59-0 win over Finland. A great intercept score from Annabel Sergeant showed the growing confidence of the team which saw all 12 play a part in the win. Further tries came from Sarah Dixon (2), Steph Johnston (3), Megan Gaffney (2) and Lauren Harris with seven conversions from the boot of Lisa Martin.

Next up was Norway and another shutout as the Scots won 46-0, tries from Laura Steven, Dixon, Martin, Harris (3) and Johnston (2) augmented by two Martin conversions and one from Sergeant. Dixon's try was the result of a quick reaction to a loose ball, though it was a not so quick reaction from one of her opponents that saw her subsequently leave the pitch after a Norwegian player stumbled and fell on her foot at the tryline.

The third and final game of the day, against Malta, saw Scotland concede their first try after three minutes, as they lost some shape and focus. Picking themselves up in the second half, they returned to form with the final scoreline 29-5; tries came from Harris (2), Green (2) and Martin, who converted two of the scores.

With a final pool game against a powerful Georgian outfit tomorrow (Sunday) morning, Scotland will be looking to start day two as they did day one and retain their spot at the top of their pool to proceed to a Cup semi final.
