The Oban Times - - Sport -

A FOR­MER Oban High School pupil was part of the Scot­land women’s rugby team that came sec­ond in a Euro­pean competition last week.

Abi Evans played her part in all six of the Rugby Europe Sevens tour­na­ment but, un­for­tu­nately, the 20-year- old and her team were beaten 34-15 in the fi­nal by Swe­den.

Scot­land topped their group – win­ning all three games against Switzer­land, Czech Repub­lic and Is­rael.

They then played Czech Repub­lic again in the quar­ter-fi­nals, and the Scot­land seven-a-side squad de­feated their op­po­nents 24-5, be­fore win­ning 17-12 against Ger­many in the semi-fi­nal.

The Scot­tish team made their way back home on Mon­day from Prague, where the tour­na­ment was held.
