MATCH DAY LIVE: Day Two: Glasgow 2014 Commonwealth Games

Scotland 7s started day two of the Glasgow 2014 Rugby Sevens tournament against South Africa at 1.12pm, in the medal quarter-finals.

The match at Ibrox Stadium was an exact rematch of the Cup quarter-finals, the equivalent stage on the HSBC Sevens World Series, at the Glasgow 7s back in May.

It was a must-win match for the Scots, to keep their medal hopes alive, however despite a fightback towards the end of the first half, South Africa powered past to win 35-12. Scotland then faced England at 6.22pm this evening in the battle for fifth place, but were just edged, in the end, 12-15.

Day two

Scotland 12-35 South Africa (medal quarter-final)

A hesitant start from Scotland saw South Africa get their foot in the scoring door first, as Hendricks collects a Brown pass to touch down within the first minute. The conversion from Du Preez was swiftly followed by a try and a further conversion from him, and another five-pointer from Senatla. Sustained pressure from Bennett, who possibly should have backed himself in the passage of play immediately before, saw him across the line on the hooter, after a tremendous offload from Scott Riddell, the conversion good from Colin Gregor to make it 7-21 at half time.

Bennett, having given his all for the score, was replaced by Stuart Hogg for the second half. A good phase of hands across the park saw Richie Vernon break through the defence and offload to Lee Jones who wasted no time crossing for his thirteenth Commonwealth try, across two Games. At 12-21 with five minutes on the clock anything was possible but South Africa defended to a man and managed to cross twice more before the final whistle put an end to Scotland's medal hopes.

Scotland 12-15 England (5th-8th play-off)

After a shaky start to the match, conceding three tries without answer in the first half, Scotland fought back and came within seconds of victory in the second seven minutes.

Despite some heroic tackling from Mark Bennett, England scored into the third minute and took command of the game for the opening period, adding another two unconverted tries as the Scots failed to find their finishing touch.

James Eddie was on the front foot at the restart but despite good numbers, the pass was fumbled. As the ball was recycled and passed out wide it was Bennett who turned up the gas to flaming hot as he flew down the wing and almost got to the line, felled just yards short. Undaunted, he stole ball at the restart and crossed the line.

With England's Dan Norton yellow carded for infringement at the breakdown, Scotland seized their chance after a fumbled pass and spilled ball was scooped up and sped over the whitewash by Lee Jones, this time converted succesfully by Gregor. At 12-15, with the extra man for another minute and over three minutes of play left, it was still game on for the Scots. The ball swept up and down the field as the Scots pressed and England defended.

Eventually the break came, when Stuart Hogg collected the pass and stepped up to the mark, outpacing the majority of the oncoming defenders as the hooter sounded. However with just metres to go, the tackle came, the ball was knocked on and it was all over. FT: 12-15
