Scotland win World Rugby Sevens Series
LONDON—Scotland won their first World Rugby Sevens Series event as they defeated South Africa 27-26 at Twickenham.
The Scots had never been to a Sevens Series final before and looked destined for defeat when they trailed 26-15 in the closing stages.
But two late tries scored by Dougie Fife, with the second coming after time had expired, delivered a historic success for Calum McRae’s team. They set up the showdown with the defended their title, yet a team featuring ex-rugby league player Jarryd Hayne, who has converted to the sport following a stint with the San Francisco 49ers in the NFL, were knocked out at the last-four stage in London by South Africa.
The Scots’ day had started the day with a 17-0 quarter-final success over England, who subsequently lost to New Zealand in the plate semi-finals, before Fife’s semi-final tries saw them progress to a meeting with South Africa.
