Brilliant Scots 7s retain Twickenham crown with win over Auld Enemy

Victory secures Scotland's second ever World Sevens Series title, having also won the London event past year.

MacRae's troops reached the showpiece after downing New Zealand and United States of America on day two in south-west London - recording a first-ever victory over the Kiwis in the quarter-finals by coming from 21-0 down at half-time to win 24-21.

"What a year, I'm unbelievably proud of the boys", he said.

Richard de Carpentier then went close to adding to England's lead, only for it to be ruled that his foot was in touch and that was as close as either side came to adding to the scoreline before half-time.

It is a special day for the England Sevens programme and it's exciting as we look to the future.

Fiji, victor of the previous two World Series, was second in the standings after winning at Hong Kong in March, but faded with quarter-final exits in Singapore and Paris, and didn't even get that far here.

Shujaa's 28-17 consolation victory against former World champions Wales in their last pool match salvaged nothing as they will now cool their heels in the Challenge trophy quarterfinals for the eighth time this season.

England lost Ollie Lindsay-Hague to injury early on but took the lead as all-time Sevens Series leading try-scorer Norton checked in from the left to beat four defenders and sidestep the final man to dive over.

They then defeated the US 21-14 in the semi-final with Joe Nayacavou scoring the clinching try with time expiring having again trailed at half-time, and the story was the same in the final. Werner Kok silenced the Twickenham faithful after the resumption of play with a well worked try, but went from hero to villan minutes later as he was sin-binned for a neck roll and James Rodwell levelled after good phase-play from the resulting penalty.

And although Dan Norton put England in the ascendancy in the final, with a length of the pitch score, the hosts were unable to hold on.
