Gregor Hopeful For Scottish Team

Colin Gregor is hopeful the Scotland Rugby Sevens team can use home advantage to the full as he looks to kick on after one of the most disappointing seasons in the HSBC Sevens World Series.

The Scotland skipper has admitted his frustration at the way the side has performed, which has seen the side languishing at twelfth in the World Series standings with just two rounds left to go. The Scots had targeted a mid-table finish this season but they are still 16 points and four places off that target.

Gregor has stated that it has been a very frustrating season for the team, adding that the team has created opportunities but has not been able to take them. He went on to add that they have also put themselves in winning positions but it hasn’t been able to kick on from there.

The Scottish Rugby Sevens skipper has also claimed that the team has lost matches that they would ideally have loved to won and let teams off the hook by not taking advantage of the position that they have put themselves in.

Colin Gregor also claimed that the team has played well in parts or in particular halves of the game, but the lapses that they have suffered have been expensive and the team is now trying to cut those mistakes out and make amends for their earlier lapses.

The Scottish Rugby Sevens team did, however, lift the Bowl in the last round that took place in Hong Kong as they beat three teams en route to finishing above them as they also defeated France.

Gregor did admit that the team has the Commonwealth Games at the back of its mind and with the event just around the corner, it has been difficult to concentrate on the World Series.
