Scots Down And Out In South Africa

Scotland 7s have ended the Nelson Mandela Bay 7s in disappointing fashion, being put out by Zimbabwe in the Shield semi-final, (21-14).



The Scots were unable to back up a victory against series runners-up Fiji, on day one, and lost their opening day two match 19-17 to Kenya.



Head coach, Phil Greening, said: "We didn't play to our standards today and were punished badly for that.



"Our South African campaign has been disappointing and day two has been embarrassing."



On the score sheet in the two matches were Michael Fedo with a brace against Kenya, Mark Robertson also touched down against Kenya and Scott Riddell and James Fleming scored against Zimbabwe. Captain Colin Gregor converted three times.
