Video: Sevens World Cup Preparations Heating Up

Little over a month after competing in front of a home crowd at the Emirates Airline Glasgow 7s, the Scotland 7s squad are back in training in preparation for the Sevens Rugby World Cup qualifier in Portugal, which takes place next month.

The team has been going through gruelling acclimatisation gym sessions, with the room artificially heated to 28 degrees celsius.  They’ll go through five sessions to ready them for the heat of the Iberian peninsula in late July.

Find out about the training and how the strength and conditioning team devise the schedule.
