Calum MacRae has named the same thirteen-man squad ahead of the HSBC World Rugby Sevens Series in Singapore this weekend.

The only change comes as Harlequins winger Robbie Nairn switches with Bobby Beattie for a place in the match-day twelve.

Mark Robertson continues his return to play protocol having picked up a head knock in Hong Kong and will feature on the basis that he is passed fit to do so later today.

Scotland have been drawn in Pool D along with New Zealand, USA and Wales.

Scotland 7s Head Coach Calum MacRae said: “To get off to a strong start in Singapore our first actions must be decisive and accurate. We grew into the tournament last week and finished strongly.

“To play Cup football we need to take the bull by the horns right from the off.

“All four teams in Pool D have the ability to progress and it will come down to who keeps their nose to the grind stone the longest.

“We enjoyed our time in Singapore last year and the crowd brought a huge energy to our performances. I expect nothing less again.”
