The women’s Scotland ‘A’ team are celebrating after winning the Home Nations student sevens event at Peffermill on Wednesday.

With early victories over Scotland ‘B’ and England, they came into their final game against Wales knowing a victory would give them the title.

An early blitz of tries saw them ease to a 40 point victory and the 2017 title.

Leading the way in the try scorers chart was Scotland international Rhona Lloyd with seven tries while her team mate Megan Gaffney bagged four.

In the men’s competition, England were the clear class act in the competition and, after squeezing past Wales 26-21, went on to remain undefeated, scoring 19 tries in their four games on the way to the title.

Wales split games with Scotland to ensure that they pipped the hosts to the second spot on points difference. Rob Lind of Scotland and England’s Connor Wilkinson both shone, finishing with four tries apiece.
