Scotland Women 7s

Scotland Women's 7s embarked on their first season of competition from May to July 2012 following open trials.

After competing in the Amsterdam 7s and Rugby Rocks London in May, the squad then took part in the FIRA-AER Divisional qualifier in Ghent, coming second out of 12 teams and thus qualifying not only for this season's FIRA-AER Grand Prix Series but also for the chance to take part in the Women's Rugby World Cup 7s qualifier in Moscow in June/July 2012. Although just edged out of a place, the squad posted good results and, in Sarah Dixon, had the tournament's third top try scorer.

Coached once again by former Scotland 7s captain, Scott Forrest, assisted by Chris Reid, the squad came together in mid-May 2013 for their second, short season. Two training weekends led to selection for the two FIRA-AER Grand Prix tournaments in Brive (1/2 June) and Marbella (15/16 June).

Scotland had to finish in the top ten out of 12 competing nations (Ukraine, Italy, Ireland, France, Spain, England, Russia, Netherlands, Portugal, Germany and Wales) in order to retain their Grand Prix status for 2014 with their finishing place will provide their ranking for next season. A twelfth place finish after Marbella meant that Scotland will not compete in the Grand Prix division next year but will move to the next level of competition, the A division, along with Germany.
