little bit. Just a few hundred metres to go, and the cheers for

:00:00.:00:00.

another wonderful but Foreman is an Australian here. Her best in a

:00:00.:00:08.

championship before this, she finished 11th in the World

:00:09.:00:11.

Championships in debut. This will surpass that. Nothing beats getting

:00:12.:00:14.

on the rostrum. The Australian flags are flying. The Glasgow crowd

:00:15.:00:21.

cheering home the smiling Jess Trengrove, who has run a brilliant

:00:22.:00:25.

race to take the bronze medal for Australia. And a new personal best

:00:26.:00:32.

as well. Imagination to her. What a wonderful effort. The emotions come

:00:33.:00:49.

pouring out. The cup list of events. It is always tough. But when it

:00:50.:00:58.

tends this way, and all of that emotion, which can sometimes go the

:00:59.:01:04.

other way, and fourth place must be a horrible position to finishing. We

:01:05.:01:10.

can see Lenny Marchand coming across the line. She will finish in fourth

:01:11.:01:42.

place. -- Lanni Marchant Full is -- Lanni Marchant. That is the result.

:01:43.:01:53.

Jonathan can speak to our winners. What an exciting day on the streets

:01:54.:01:58.

of Glasgow. Trengove coming through for the bronze medal. In the men's

:01:59.:02:03.

race, it was the gold-medal for Michael Shelley. We can catch up and

:02:04.:02:08.

confirm the result of the men's race. It was the silver medal four

:02:09.:02:14.

years ago in Delhi. Today it was the gold-medal. Stephen Chemlany was

:02:15.:02:24.

second. And Kiplimo was third. The top British finisher was Derek

:02:25.:02:27.

Hawkins for Scotland. Afterwards, I caught up with the winner. Michael

:02:28.:02:35.

Shelley, Commonwealth Games champion, how good does that sound?

:02:36.:02:41.

It is very exciting. Some greatest Ralph might have won it in the past.

:02:42.:02:49.

I am very excited. -- great Australians. It looks like you just

:02:50.:02:58.

run your race. Yes, there were lots of surges in the first half. I just

:02:59.:03:03.

could not respond as quickly to the Excel orations. I just decided to

:03:04.:03:09.

stay relaxed. It is the first lap. You cannot go too hard too early.

:03:10.:03:14.

Four years ago it was the silver medal. What's the plan always to

:03:15.:03:19.

come to Glasgow in the rain and do over the Africans? I do not like the

:03:20.:03:25.

rain much either. It is very exciting to come back. I was just

:03:26.:03:31.

excited to come back and defend myself medal. I am over the moon. It

:03:32.:03:37.

is not often in a major championship marathon that you run a personal

:03:38.:03:43.

best. Yes, that is even better. Big thanks to my coach and my family

:03:44.:03:48.

back home for believing in me. Derek Hawkins, ninth place, the first

:03:49.:03:54.

British athlete home, the first Scottish athlete, how pleased are

:03:55.:04:02.

you? I am pleased, giving the conditions. On the second lap,

:04:03.:04:06.

heading towards Bellahouston Park, it was pretty windy and tough going.

:04:07.:04:11.

Once I got past that, I felt quite strong. In terms of the time, 2.14,

:04:12.:04:20.

are you pleased with that? Yes, I am pleased with that, and I was only 11

:04:21.:04:26.

seconds away from my personal best. That was in Frankfurt, and it was a

:04:27.:04:31.

considerably faster course. Great crowds, a proud moment for you, I

:04:32.:04:38.

would imagine? The crowds were unbelievable. In certain sections,

:04:39.:04:42.

particularly the home straight, it was very late. Congratulations.

:04:43.:04:50.

Domestic honours to you? Yes, I am pleased with that. The English team

:04:51.:04:56.

are around my standard. I was looking forward to it. It was a

:04:57.:05:00.

battle. I am glad I was able to come first out of them. You have quite a

:05:01.:05:07.

story, but how was that for your first major marathon? It does not

:05:08.:05:12.

get better than that. It went off quite slowly, and I have no short

:05:13.:05:21.

speed, so I needed to run at an even pace. I find myself leading the

:05:22.:05:24.

Commonwealth Games marathon, which was brilliant. Then the Africans

:05:25.:05:31.

sped off, but I kept it at my steady pace all the way. I felt really

:05:32.:05:39.

strong. I was trying to stay near the Derek. He gradually pulled away

:05:40.:05:46.

from me. I think it is a British record for old men! Two weeks into

:05:47.:05:53.

my 40th year. I think I have made the veteran's record. You have to

:05:54.:05:59.

pinch yourself when you think of the journey you have been on.

:06:00.:06:05.

Definitely. The Commonwealth Games, a British record. I am not sure what

:06:06.:06:12.

my position was. Maybe 10th place. I think you might have been tense.

:06:13.:06:17.

Derek Hawkins was ninth place, and you will intense place. That is what

:06:18.:06:25.

I was hoping for. I am going to have a drink. That is the best smile I

:06:26.:06:30.

have seen after a marathon. Thank you very much. That was a great

:06:31.:06:37.

interview. In terms of the women's race, the top British finisher was

:06:38.:06:42.

Susan Partridge of Scotland. She was in sixth place. Just behind her was

:06:43.:06:50.

the English athlete. Partridge was in the makes for quite awhile. They

:06:51.:06:54.

could not hang on to the pace the end. Alongside me, parlour

:06:55.:07:01.

Radcliffe. We were treated to two grade races. We will start with the

:07:02.:07:06.

men's. Michael Shelley, he ran a perfect race. Yes, he judged it

:07:07.:07:12.

really well and ran a personal best. What more can you ask? He just kept

:07:13.:07:20.

his head throughout. I think he reacted really well to the kind of

:07:21.:07:23.

trauma and drama that was thrown out.

:07:24.:07:25.

reacted really well to the kind of trauma and drama that We had the

:07:26.:07:29.

fall at the end of the first lap. It gave him a chance to get back onto

:07:30.:07:36.

the grid. He race to perfection. He was able to keep going at the end.

:07:37.:07:41.

We get so used to the Kenyans and the Africans winning these races. It

:07:42.:07:48.

is a very pleasant change to see a Australian coming along and doing

:07:49.:07:55.

that. Yes, the Africans have a great tradition in Commonwealth Games

:07:56.:08:07.

marathons. However, the Australians have one in the past. -- have been

:08:08.:08:20.

victorious. You mentioned the fall. Abraham Kiplimo. He did very well to

:08:21.:08:28.

regain his composure. Yes, it took him some time to get back. He was

:08:29.:08:34.

dictating events before that. He struggled after that. It took time

:08:35.:08:40.

to regain his composure. Then he made a bit of the surge and broke

:08:41.:08:45.

the race apart. He was not able to sustain it, and Michael Shelley was

:08:46.:08:50.

able to capitalise on that. I think the Australians organise themselves

:08:51.:08:55.

really well, to the Australians organise themselves

:08:56.:08:57.

really learn the course and to come well-prepared. You mention Steven

:08:58.:09:05.

Way beforehand, his amazing story. I have never seen a happier

:09:06.:09:09.

interviewee after a marathon. It is remarkable, what he has achieved?

:09:10.:09:16.

Yes, it is remarkable. People say, running is too difficult. You never

:09:17.:09:21.

know what you might be able to achieve. He has taken another step

:09:22.:09:26.

further forward from the massive step you took at the London marathon

:09:27.:09:30.

in April. Who knows where he could go from here? It was a great run

:09:31.:09:38.

from Derek Hawkins? Yes, and for Susan. The crowds really got behind

:09:39.:09:45.

them the hallway. I am sure that all of the marathon athletes will say

:09:46.:09:49.

that as they finished, a big thank you to the city of Glasgow for the

:09:50.:09:55.

welcome. Kenya went head-to-head in the women's race. Daniel got the

:09:56.:10:00.

better of it. It was a well paced race. Yes, I think the Kenyans will

:10:01.:10:05.

be disappointed not to take victory in the men's race. The women were

:10:06.:10:14.

head and shoulders above the third-place. Daniel was just the

:10:15.:10:21.

stronger of the two with two colour metres to go. Trengove was happy

:10:22.:10:27.

with her bronze medal? Yes, you saw the emotion. I think she was

:10:28.:10:41.

inspired by her compatriot. She would have got information on the

:10:42.:10:44.

victory of Michael Shelley on the course, which would have given her a

:10:45.:10:49.

boost. Back to you for the rest of the day's action.

:10:50.:10:54.

Thank you very much indeed. Great scenes around Glasgow. The crowds

:10:55.:11:01.

were magnificent today. Good afternoon. Welcome to further

:11:02.:11:07.

coverage of the Commonwealth Games. 24 gold medals to be one today. This

:11:08.:11:18.

is what is coming up. Will Charlotte Kerwood straight gold again in the

:11:19.:11:28.

women's double trap final? The world number one from Malaysia, Nicol

:11:29.:11:31.

David, is on a mission to retain her title. It is the semifinals in

:11:32.:11:39.

squash. And this man is the Welsh hope for a boxing medal. We will see

:11:40.:11:43.

Joseph Cordina take on David Gauthier of Canada. And we have got

:11:44.:11:52.

live coverage on BBC Three of lots of other sports as well. We have

:11:53.:11:59.

swimming, and also, this coverage on the red button. If you want to

:12:00.:12:04.

follow any of the sports are alive on the website. We will have full

:12:05.:12:11.

coverage on the radio. Today, we are concentrating on the rugby sevens.

:12:12.:12:16.

It is 20 degrees cooler than it was yesterday and it is raining the

:12:17.:12:21.

year, but everyone here will have a good time. -- our. We have four

:12:22.:12:28.

fantastic quarterfinals lined up. We are starting with New Zealand

:12:29.:12:36.

against Kenya. There will be fun and thrills, and massive head. There

:12:37.:12:41.

will be tackles and tries. It will be a wonderful atmosphere. You have

:12:42.:12:47.

got to be with us. John, you're absolutely right. It is

:12:48.:12:53.

fantastic venue. New Zealand won last night is set up a match against

:12:54.:12:59.

Kenya. Ibrox has been a superb venue for the rugby. The good news is that

:13:00.:13:06.

rugby sevens will be part of the next Olympics. New Zealand, as you

:13:07.:13:13.

would expect, have made a superb start to the quarterfinals. In the

:13:14.:13:18.

first half, the scored early tries through Ben Lam. Also, Tim Mikkleson

:13:19.:13:38.

joined in the fun as well. They are 12-0 up. We will go live to Ibrox

:13:39.:13:41.

and join the commentary team. The referees will not give a

:13:42.:14:12.

fraction of an inch on the breakdown. It is an area of the game

:14:13.:14:20.

that we saw yesterday. New Zealand are probably the most efficient,

:14:21.:14:22.

they are very efficient technically. in 1998, Manchester in 2002,

:14:23.:14:49.

Melbourne in 2006, Delhi in 2010. Short odds, Glasgow 2014. We had a

:14:50.:14:59.

real amongst us in the commentary box that none of us would ever

:15:00.:15:03.

mention that they had never lost a Commonwealth Games much because I

:15:04.:15:08.

cannot believe no one knows that. A further indication of how dominant

:15:09.:15:16.

they are. Since that opening try, they have enjoyed pretty much full

:15:17.:15:21.

control over the Kenyans, as the horn signals have time. Quite happy

:15:22.:15:29.

to get to have time. That will do, they will regroup. All New Zealand

:15:30.:15:36.

on the pitch, all New Zealand on the scoreboard.

:15:37.:15:50.

How many times has he strode out to deliver a few well chosen words?

:15:51.:16:00.

Let's see if we can pick up one or two Mac.

:16:01.:16:22.

Struggling to deliver his message. Let's see how the Kenyan courts

:16:23.:16:43.

does. -- coach does. I think he will probably be the happier of the two

:16:44.:16:50.

cultures. -- to coaches. Such a quick shift in the game, it only

:16:51.:16:58.

takes one ball on the ground. Apologies if one or two of you may

:16:59.:17:02.

have been offended by the language picked up there. It is a

:17:03.:17:08.

Commonwealth Games quarterfinal. There is a lot at stake. The boys

:17:09.:17:14.

are on edge, and you can understand why. Against Scotland, they were

:17:15.:17:27.

very comfortably. Where do these things can change extremely

:17:28.:17:35.

quickly, the coaches will know that. He was barking the message to his

:17:36.:17:39.

players. Do not be intimidated by the colour of the shirt. We know how

:17:40.:17:46.

intimidating best black shirt can be in the game of rugby. Have Kenya got

:17:47.:17:51.

the mental resolve to get amongst this New Zealand team and create

:17:52.:17:57.

something? They have never been beyond this stage. They are

:17:58.:18:01.

immediately on the attack. Oscar Ouma. Picked up by Monday. --

:18:02.:18:27.

Monday. That will do it! Loose play by New Zealand, unable to get the

:18:28.:18:34.

defenders in their and fill the gap. Kenya have paced and scored.

:18:35.:18:43.

Conversion to bring it within five. That is just the second tray New

:18:44.:18:48.

Zealand have conceded in Glasgow this weekend. Trinidad and Tobago.

:18:49.:19:02.

Let's say how they deal with the kick-off. The crowd are awake. They

:19:03.:19:07.

can sense the possibility something could happen. For word by Mikkelson.

:19:08.:19:22.

Black, scrum weights. Kenya have one as well. Just a little bit of black

:19:23.:19:41.

feather ruffling. This is Odhiambo. That was a risky pass. Superb

:19:42.:19:56.

counter ruck. Mikkelson picks it up. There is something of the Australian

:19:57.:19:59.

full-back about Mikkelson with that running style. Curry working hard,

:20:00.:20:14.

this is Kaka, Bryce Heem. Ben Lam, from Auckland. There is

:20:15.:20:26.

determination about the Kenyan team. Did very well. The tackle was made

:20:27.:20:37.

by Bryce Heem which nullified the action. Testament to the physical

:20:38.:20:49.

nature we have seen so far in this game.

:20:50.:21:00.

Reaching this stage in the match when it is time to bring on some

:21:01.:21:15.

fresh legs. Ayange's match is over. There was a real urgency from that

:21:16.:21:20.

New Zealand team in that defensive situation. You would hope so because

:21:21.:21:29.

with four minutes to run, this scheme is anybody's still. New

:21:30.:21:35.

Zealand can control the ball, and you can feel they will get points on

:21:36.:21:40.

the board. Oscar Ouma for the Kenyans, picked up by Injera, the

:21:41.:21:52.

man on the left-hand side is Odhiambo. That was speculative. They

:21:53.:22:00.

are not going to profit from the kick here. Kaka got back and clears

:22:01.:22:18.

long. Here is Injera. Injera raises his arms, but... Scrum. Interesting

:22:19.:22:28.

looking at the face of DJ Forbes, he has the look on his face when

:22:29.:22:34.

Scotland were suggesting unlikely things yesterday. He is the shop

:22:35.:22:39.

steward, he gathers his mates around him when it is starting to get dodgy

:22:40.:22:44.

and he is doing that now. That is the sign of a great leader. This

:22:45.:22:50.

team is built on players taking responsibility. The big players have

:22:51.:22:57.

got to stand up. Webber has got great feat. Let's see what he is

:22:58.:23:03.

going to try and create. He very nearly got away. Takes it over the

:23:04.:23:10.

halfway line. DJ Forbes, always in the centre of things. Kaka, neat

:23:11.:23:16.

little step onto the ten-metre line. Picked up by Bryce Heem, here goes

:23:17.:23:24.

Curry. Still going. Thought about the quick release but decided to

:23:25.:23:34.

hold onto it. Bryce Heem, DJ Forbes. Bryce Heem was very quickly to make

:23:35.:23:37.

sure the ball came back. Clever from Kaka. Curry, little hitch step.

:23:38.:23:50.

Webber was involved, and so is Ben Lam. He got the ball rolling in the

:23:51.:23:57.

first-half, he comes one or two New Zealand nerves. Certainly does.

:23:58.:24:06.

Webber has been influential here. Brings Ben Lam back in. You can

:24:07.:24:16.

ticket back to the influence of DJ Forbes. -- take it back. DJ Forbes

:24:17.:24:25.

has stood up and been the man here. New Zealand were showing signs of

:24:26.:24:31.

wobbling, great leadership from a charismatic leader of this New

:24:32.:24:36.

Zealand side. That really was outstanding. One of three survivors

:24:37.:24:45.

that won gold in Delhi. Mikkelson and DJ Forbes part of that. Kenya

:24:46.:24:57.

bringing on a substitute. The winners of this game will play the

:24:58.:25:03.

winners of Australia and Wales, after lunch. How brisk were

:25:04.:25:10.

Australia yesterday? They bullied England. Really impressed with

:25:11.:25:20.

Australia yesterday. Into the final 60 seconds. The growing sense that

:25:21.:25:33.

New Zealand have weathered the storm that was gathering above us here at

:25:34.:25:38.

Ibrox. It is brighter above the stadium as well.

:25:39.:25:53.

DJ Forbes, as he has all match, takes the responsibility. Mikkelson,

:25:54.:26:02.

he has been full of running all match, to Webber. This is Sam

:26:03.:26:13.

Dickson. There is the smell of a Glasgow bonfire from somewhere,

:26:14.:26:16.

smoke blowing across the pitch. Ben Lam, DJ Forbes! I am not sure he

:26:17.:26:28.

would have made that pass. However, it is DJ Forbes who has the final

:26:29.:26:34.

say. He might not have scored, but his influence was dominant in making

:26:35.:26:42.

sure they can contemplate yet another Commonwealth Games

:26:43.:26:45.

semifinal. They will have to take up their level some what. The Kenyans

:26:46.:26:58.

played very well. High standards are demanded by the courts. -- the

:26:59.:27:09.

coach. New Zealand have won by 19-7. New Zealand will play the winners of

:27:10.:27:14.

Australia against Wales, coming up very shortly here. Good afternoon

:27:15.:27:20.

from Andy Nicol and Jonathan Davies. Quick word on New Zealand. Not as

:27:21.:27:27.

impressive as yesterday. But they are better than anyone at the

:27:28.:27:31.

contact. The support lines are brilliant, so if they are there. If

:27:32.:27:35.

they do not breakthrough, the clear out. Especially against England,

:27:36.:27:43.

Australia looked very good. Very impressed with Australia. Good

:27:44.:27:47.

balance, hard-working and good pace as well. New Zealand have to step

:27:48.:27:57.

up. Wales need to keep the bowl. The match is coming fast and furious.

:27:58.:28:01.

The second quarter final of the Rugby Sevens at Ibrox. Back to the

:28:02.:28:05.

commentary team. Australia against Wales for the

:28:06.:28:15.

right to challenge the might of New Zealand in the semifinals here at

:28:16.:28:23.

Ibrox after lunch. The best weather of the day so far. The rain has

:28:24.:28:26.

disappeared. They lost the critical game to some

:28:27.:28:50.

or, 19-12. That was a high tackle. Just a little bit high, slipped up

:28:51.:28:55.

off the tackle. Getting the ball away to Williams. Taken on by Adam

:28:56.:28:59.

Thomas, the captain. away to Williams. Taken on by Adam

:29:00.:29:05.

to open the scoring for Wales! Great play from Williams. From deep inside

:29:06.:29:16.

their own half, that was Rugby Sevens at its best! Great running,

:29:17.:29:29.

good interplay, Lee Williams has been at the heart of everything.

:29:30.:29:37.

Adam Thomas the captain taking a little bit of treatment, took a big

:29:38.:29:43.

blow in the build-up to that try. The referee happy with all the

:29:44.:29:53.

challenges. Just the interplay, the passing, sharpness, awareness of who

:29:54.:29:59.

was around. Look at that. The try was scored by Harry 's. Wales

:30:00.:30:13.

leading. Against an Australian team who dominated England in the last

:30:14.:30:17.

eight minutes of their match late yesterday evening at Ibrox. The

:30:18.:30:22.

silver-medallists from Delhi four years ago have barely got started.

:30:23.:30:29.

Great take by the Australian captain, managed to stay on his

:30:30.:30:32.

feet. Wales did well to stop them getting the ball back. James Davis.

:30:33.:32:02.

The trial will be scored by Williams. I think he enjoyed it! It

:32:03.:32:12.

has been not all Wales. They lead by a dozen points. They will be

:32:13.:32:18.

ecstatic with the way this game has started. Australia have not really

:32:19.:32:23.

got their hands on the ball. The support play and the attack from

:32:24.:32:28.

Wales have been very good. Yet again, it is the diminutive figure

:32:29.:32:36.

of Lee Williams. Two tries against Malaysia. He adds to the tally.

:32:37.:32:46.

Wales take the extra points. Possibly surprisingly, Wales are

:32:47.:32:55.

leading Australia. 14-0. There is no question that they deserved. Gareth

:32:56.:33:03.

Williams was confirmed as the coach at the start of April.

:33:04.:33:28.

Morgan has gone and Wales will score a third. It has been the perfect

:33:29.:33:36.

first half for Wills at Ibrox. Australia are in tatters. We'll

:33:37.:33:42.

stood exceptionally well to turn the ball over. The kept their wits and

:33:43.:33:49.

the possession. They push the ball to the far right-hand side, into the

:33:50.:33:57.

hands of Morgan. He goes over in the corner.

:33:58.:34:10.

You wonder if things like that, in tight games, big game, could that be

:34:11.:34:21.

the difference? The Australian team, they look so accomplished. You know

:34:22.:34:26.

that they will have their purple patch.

:34:27.:34:54.

Australia have the penalty. Tom Foley was hate before the ten metre

:34:55.:35:06.

line. That was a very good tackle. Australia, this is the first chance

:35:07.:35:12.

with the ball in hand. I am sure they will be glad to see the first

:35:13.:35:14.

half over. Australia score before half-time.

:35:15.:35:55.

The skipper has got it, Ed Jenkins. That puts a different complexion on

:35:56.:36:02.

the game. After the gone at the end of the first half, the sneak over

:36:03.:36:08.

for a try. The captain, leading from the front. Simon Mannix said it in

:36:09.:36:18.

the commentary, but that try may have changed the match completely.

:36:19.:36:23.

It might have, but you expect that in rugby sevens. Wales played an

:36:24.:36:29.

open game. They did not look for contact. They created opportunities.

:36:30.:36:38.

Perhaps the missed conversion will play a big part. That is the best

:36:39.:36:43.

performance that they have put in the tournament so far. Can we just

:36:44.:36:48.

listening to the conversation? INAUDIBLE

:36:49.:36:54.

I think there are INAUDIBLE

:36:55.:36:56.

I think probably going to say more of the same. They were not

:36:57.:37:05.

intimidated by the Australian team. We said yesterday that Australia

:37:06.:37:11.

were impressive. This proves that today is a different day. What

:37:12.:37:16.

happened yesterday as relevant in many ways. This is about winning

:37:17.:37:21.

games. Wales had the ball in the first half and they scored three

:37:22.:37:26.

tries. You saw at the end what sevens rugby is all about. This is

:37:27.:37:36.

going to be a great second half. The first try is important. If Wales can

:37:37.:37:41.

get it and push on, it will be a long way for Australia to claw-back.

:37:42.:37:48.

If Wales scored again, it will be up to Australia to score three. As the

:37:49.:37:52.

clock ticks down, that gets more and more unlikely. Great stuff.

:37:53.:38:22.

Greg Jeloudev, taking the ball up to halfway. The penalty goes the way of

:38:23.:38:26.

Australia. Jesse Parahi and Cameron Clark

:38:27.:38:47.

coming together in the centre of the field to create a moment of hope for

:38:48.:38:49.

Australia. Ifan Evans was thrown into touch in

:38:50.:39:36.

the end. We have had one minute and 30 seconds without scoring in the

:39:37.:39:40.

second half. Australia were resolute, the line was solid.

:39:41.:40:45.

What about that from Wales? Great covering from Lee Williams. He is

:40:46.:40:59.

playing the sweeper role. The big hit was to no avail. The trial will

:41:00.:41:07.

be scored by Sean McMahon. Good skills from Jesse Parahi. You have

:41:08.:41:13.

to take the man and the ball. You have got to stop the move. -- the

:41:14.:41:27.

try. There are three and a half minutes to go. It is game on. The

:41:28.:41:36.

Wallabies have got to the two points. It is all getting a little

:41:37.:41:53.

bit nervous. Three minutes or left. There are five points in it.

:41:54.:42:29.

There is nothing in this game. Those are the things that turn games. The

:42:30.:42:37.

line-out was not straight for Wales. It gave Australia the

:42:38.:42:43.

opportunity. Now we have a chance for Wales the reading -- to take

:42:44.:42:56.

possession. They are bringing on Liam Gill.

:42:57.:43:22.

Jason Harries is doing his career no harm at all. He is currently

:43:23.:43:25.

unattached. You have to give credit to Jim

:43:26.:43:55.

Stannard. That was fantastic. Wales made hard work of that. It should

:43:56.:44:02.

have been a try. If Morgan had placed the ball immediately, could

:44:03.:44:07.

he have stretched out. He would have lost possession, I suppose. 60

:44:08.:44:13.

seconds to go. Jim Stannard saved the day for Australia. It was great

:44:14.:44:16.

defence. 50 seconds to go. I am getting a

:44:17.:44:24.

little bit excited! takes five or six seconds to get up

:44:25.:45:10.

to the other end. Driving it for. The future has gone.

:45:11.:45:14.

to the other end. Driving it for. The -- the hooter has gone.

:45:15.:45:23.

Australia will get a second chance. The Welsh coach is needing his side

:45:24.:45:36.

to get this done. Australia have got to get on with this and come up with

:45:37.:45:42.

something special. One last mighty defensive effort from the Welsh

:45:43.:45:49.

team. Gill getting the ball off the floor. This is where Australia will

:45:50.:45:56.

be very strong. This is Gill. Out to Clark. Clark is going! Clark has

:45:57.:46:05.

found the pass, Jenkins held up just short, the danger is still there!

:46:06.:46:14.

The Australian attack against Welsh defence for a place in the

:46:15.:46:21.

Commonwealth Games semifinals. You have got to credit both teams. Great

:46:22.:46:25.

attacking play from Australia, superb defence... File, and under

:46:26.:46:37.

the post. And the simplest of convergence. --, versions. No words

:46:38.:46:46.

to express Welsh pain or Australian joy. The penalty taken quickly,

:46:47.:46:56.

little stamp of the right foot then underneath the posts. Australia did

:46:57.:47:02.

exceptionally well, penalty in their own 22. The conversion, the glory

:47:03.:47:15.

and the place in the last four to Australia. What a mighty comeback,

:47:16.:47:20.

they got a try just before half-time, they developed some

:47:21.:47:26.

amends, and Wales, who dominated the first minutes of the match have got

:47:27.:47:28.

to lift themselves somehow. Jonathan! That has to be the most

:47:29.:47:41.

exciting piece of sport in the Commonwealth Games so far. That is

:47:42.:47:46.

what the Rugby Sevens are all about. Until the final whistle goes, you

:47:47.:47:50.

have to play it. Wales, with 59 seconds to go, had a three on one,

:47:51.:47:57.

and they should have scored. That has cost them the game. Heroic

:47:58.:48:00.

defence at the end, but Australia new. They kept going, this is it,

:48:01.:48:06.

this is the three on one. You have got to scored. The game is over, the

:48:07.:48:13.

clock is running down. That is the game. But credit to Australia to go

:48:14.:48:19.

the length of the park. Three penalties, but you can see it here.

:48:20.:48:25.

That is the game, that is the semifinal, and a potential medal.

:48:26.:48:31.

That was a game for a medal, that was. That had to be scored. But if

:48:32.:48:37.

you keep possession, Australia were aware of this, eventually you will

:48:38.:48:43.

have an opportunity. Heroic defence, but Australia kept going and got the

:48:44.:48:47.

try under the posts. The conversion was easy. It does not necessarily

:48:48.:48:54.

mean it is the end of the match, you can play for another five minutes as

:48:55.:48:59.

long as you keep possession. It had to be a good minute before Australia

:49:00.:49:03.

scored. The biggest difference is the breakdown. The southern

:49:04.:49:07.

hemisphere sides at the breakdown are dominating the northern

:49:08.:49:12.

hemisphere sides. They are winning 70% of the tackle area. We are now

:49:13.:49:21.

about to move on to England against Samoa. We think it is all about

:49:22.:49:30.

running in this game, but it is also about kicking. What about this much?

:49:31.:49:36.

It'll be interesting to see who takes over from as the playmaker. He

:49:37.:49:41.

he was injured yesterday. -- from younger Mitchell. Second day rugby,

:49:42.:49:54.

this will be very physical. We have had to Mac fantastic quarterfinals

:49:55.:49:57.

so far. Scotland against South Africa still to come, and here we

:49:58.:50:05.

have England against the big tackling some organs. -- Samoa.

:50:06.:50:17.

Two cracking games coming up, Scott Hastings alongside me. The

:50:18.:50:29.

atmosphere and intensity has risen a few notches. It has, great rugby.

:50:30.:50:39.

Great atmosphere within the stadium. The Wales versus Australia game,

:50:40.:50:42.

that is the sort of game the crowd wants to watch.

:50:43.:50:44.

that is the sort of game the crowd wants Top-class rugby. These teams

:50:45.:50:51.

are used to each other on the IRB sevens World Series circuit. They

:50:52.:50:56.

have played three times over the last season. Samoa Have won twice.

:50:57.:51:04.

The last one in Wellington back in February, England one 21-5. Ellery

:51:05.:51:14.

on the attack. England up to the 22. Play on! Pinched at the back by

:51:15.:51:27.

Samoa. Attacking run. Off your feet, leave it. Almost got away with that.

:51:28.:51:38.

Mitchell really was a playmaker for England. Who will step up? Burgess

:51:39.:51:47.

on the outside mix the tackle. -- makes the tackle. Advantage being

:51:48.:51:56.

played. Samoa On the attack. The ball is just there. A little gap

:51:57.:52:03.

down the blindside, tried to exploit it. Drag down short of the line.

:52:04.:52:14.

Come across, come across. This man has already scored five tries in

:52:15.:52:17.

this competition. Two against Wales, two against Papua New Guinea. One

:52:18.:52:25.

against Malaysia. He is wearing the number two jersey. Popping up like a

:52:26.:52:35.

champagne cork in that line-out. Watson with the shark feet. -- shark

:52:36.:52:48.

feet. The counter rock was good. Philip Burgess playing well on the

:52:49.:52:57.

deck there. Mark Bright was... Interesting decision to users for

our. -- to use his four or. More to do with Samoa's defence. England

:53:06.:53:14.

have left Daniel Norton on the bench. Mitchell, not kitted out for

:53:15.:53:30.

action. England's captain is out of the tournament. He is one of the

:53:31.:53:33.

most outstanding players on the circuit. He is the master of this

:53:34.:53:42.

England team. The scrum-half will feed the scrum. Packing down. Picked

:53:43.:54:00.

up. Boots the ball out. Touch and go. Great pressure. Great pressure.

:54:01.:54:15.

Samoa, they beat Papua New Guinea 33-14. The game was tight yesterday,

:54:16.:54:26.

they beat Wales 19-12. Samoa, right up for this one, physicality and

:54:27.:54:41.

skill set excellent. Quick ball. You can see him calling for the ball.

:54:42.:54:47.

Stopping the wide pass going out towards two lower. Tackled on this

:54:48.:54:54.

occasion by Mark Bright. Not afraid to play the tight channels, Samoa.

:54:55.:55:02.

You have to credit England's defence. Great turnover by Mark

:55:03.:55:14.

Bright. He has got to bring the ball this site, which he has done. Mike

:55:15.:55:20.

Ellery has a little goal. Marcus Watson from the ten yard line. He

:55:21.:55:25.

has got real pace, he is getting chased! Almost had him, Marcus

:55:26.:55:38.

Watson's brilliant footwork! He has pace to burn. From a penalty within

:55:39.:55:45.

50 metres of their own line, a couple of white bowls. -- wide

:55:46.:55:57.

bowls. You felt that he had done the hard work, a little shuffle of the

:55:58.:56:04.

feet, change of direction, themed the step back inside, Watson goes

:56:05.:56:12.

over for the opening try. He is really maturing as a Rugby Sevens

:56:13.:56:16.

player. Having a real input in England's performance. The

:56:17.:56:22.

additional two points mailed. -- mailed. Marcus Watson, younger

:56:23.:56:32.

brother Anthony played for England under 20s. You consider that Marcus

Watson, 25 tournament under his dealt, he is an attacking threat. --

:56:40.:56:50.

under his belt. Great kick-off, not able to be regathered. Samoa Really

:56:51.:56:59.

quick on the ball. Sprinting all the way back.

:57:00.:57:07.

The Pas had to go to hand. Getting the support. Men over here for Samoa

:57:08.:57:24.

and they are in for a try. His sixth try of the tournament. He used feet

:57:25.:57:33.

when he went into tackle him. Now, you finished him off! You finished

:57:34.:57:44.

him off was called from the referee. Defended so well in that passage of

:57:45.:57:53.

play. Making the tackle. Samoa, working the phases. In the corner.

:57:54.:58:03.

Two minutes in the Sydney bin for him. The restart will be with a

:58:04.:58:12.

penalty -- this in then -- the sin bin. It is not directionally right.

:58:13.:58:27.

The referee has called the penalty. In the interim, Samoa have broken

:58:28.:58:39.

away. Cart by Philip Burgess, they have got men over if they can move

:58:40.:58:44.

quickly. Another one! Within the space of a minute. Brilliant play!

:58:45.:58:55.

All about the passing. He did not have to check his stride whatsoever.

:58:56.:59:01.

Brings the player onto the ball. Two came outside the defender. -- took

:59:02.:59:09.

him outside the defender. There was nothing Michael Ellery could do

:59:10.:59:15.

about that. Fantastic. Up to seven tries for the Commonwealth Games.

:59:16.:59:25.

It has been an expensive couple of minutes. He misses the conversion.

:59:26.:59:34.

Scintillating response from Samoa. Thrills a minute. Thrills a second,

:59:35.:59:56.

you can see 10-7 to Samoa. The key element may have

:59:57.:59:56.

you can see 10-7 to Samoa. The key element may been this sin -- the sin

:59:57.:00:04.

binning decision. What did you make of the decision? It has been a very

:00:05.:00:11.

physical game, nothing in it. This is the opportunity, the ball is

:00:12.:00:17.

bouncing. Number five, just watch him. There is nothing in that,

:00:18.:00:22.

really. He is unlikely to get the yellow card. They have scored a try

:00:23.:00:26.

from it and he is offer another minute. A big cold from the referee

:00:27.:00:33.

which I did not think was that bad. We thought he might have gone in

:00:34.:00:37.

with his feet. That was a harsh cold from the referee. Samoa Have already

:00:38.:00:52.

scored five. Two players in this sin then. Samoa, they have missed both

:00:53.:01:04.

conversions. In the knockout stages they are crucial. England have got

:01:05.:01:09.

to last for a minute before Rodwell comes back. England have got gas,

:01:10.:01:19.

but so have Samoa. It is about the big guys creating space. They will

:01:20.:01:26.

take the ball a couple of times. Then they will go wide. That's what

:01:27.:01:32.

they will try to do. This match could be decided in the next 60

:01:33.:01:34.

seconds. England are one man short. integrate sevens players with the

:01:35.:02:26.

normal game, working with the senior management team. James Rodwell is

:02:27.:02:38.

back on. He is one of the most experienced players in this England

:02:39.:02:39.

setup. That was a close call. Lewis-Pratt

:02:40.:02:52.

takes it quickly. Lio Lolo, into the corner, it might

:02:53.:03:43.

go. Acrobatic! That was brilliant. What is going to happen? We will

:03:44.:03:46.

need to have another look at that one. Was the player in touch? I will

:03:47.:03:57.

have to check. Can we see this on review please.

:03:58.:04:08.

That is fantastic! As he was running across, he had the ball in his wrong

:04:09.:04:19.

hand. The ball in his wrong hand. He knew what that should be in the

:04:20.:04:32.

gymnastics. -- he knew what he was going to do. That was magical. From

:04:33.:04:53.

Lio Lolo, we go to Lolo Lui. He misses the conversion of the try,

:04:54.:05:01.

and that was from Lio Lolo. You can see the value of the conversions,

:05:02.:05:03.

Wales losing by two points. see the value of the conversions,

:05:04.:05:09.

Wales losing That, from Lio Lolo, you have to say, is fantastic.

:05:10.:05:15.

England will have to score two more tries in the remaining three minutes

:05:16.:05:17.

and 50 seconds. Magnificent, magnificent. That was

:05:18.:06:26.

all about individual skills. The outside of the left boot. The bones

:06:27.:06:34.

was favourable. The conversion is to come. It is a 1-point game. At this

:06:35.:06:44.

stage last time, two points separated the teams in Delhi. Now,

:06:45.:06:49.

it is down to one point, separated the teams in Delhi. Now,

:06:50.:06:52.

it is down to because of this individual brilliance by Dan Norton.

:06:53.:06:56.

There are two minutes left on the clock. This is sevens rugby at its

:06:57.:07:03.

scintillating best. That is all, the maul first. -- that

:07:04.:07:54.

is a maul. You can see, the players from Samoa were desperately trying

:07:55.:08:00.

to hold the ball up. The England players were desperately trying to

:08:01.:08:04.

get the ball down. Anything can happen. One minute left on the

:08:05.:08:05.

clock. That was a good tackle. He got the

:08:06.:08:37.

turnover ball and the penalty. Dan Norton is attacking. Tom Powell

:08:38.:08:50.

spilled the ball. It will be a scrum and they take out by Samoa. Tom

:08:51.:08:58.

Powell will be distraught. Was that England's last chance? Samoyed just

:08:59.:09:09.

have to boot the ball out of touch. -- Samoa.

:09:10.:09:49.

That was a good tackle. Look at the physicality of Samoa. Tom Powell

:09:50.:10:03.

came in from another side position. That was the last play. Dan Norton

:10:04.:10:09.

got isolated in the contact. That is where Samoa have won the game.

:10:10.:10:17.

England will be distraught. Lolo Lui just kicks the ball out. It was

:10:18.:10:28.

another great game. We have had three fantastic quarterfinals. It

:10:29.:10:35.

has been really magnificent in terms of spectacle and skills. In a way,

:10:36.:10:41.

that is where England lost it? Yes, England did well when they were down

:10:42.:10:48.

to six men. Samoa did not score. But the southern hemisphere, the contact

:10:49.:10:52.

alia, when the ball goes to ground, they are in there. That has been the

:10:53.:10:59.

crucial area for me. Without a doubt. The difference between rugby

:11:00.:11:05.

and rugby sevens is that a lot of the time your skills are exposed.

:11:06.:11:10.

Nowhere more than in the contact. You have got to be effective. Dan

:11:11.:11:18.

Norton got isolated. Samoa were able to get the ball. The cheer was for

:11:19.:11:30.

England. Before that, they were chanting for Wales. Now this is the

:11:31.:11:36.

big moment for Scotland. This is a big task for them against South

:11:37.:11:42.

Africa. But they can win this? Yes, in the quarterfinal of the rugby

:11:43.:11:47.

sevens a few months ago, in the quarterfinal Scotland beat South

:11:48.:11:50.

Africa. They know that they can do it. I reckon Scotland can do it with

:11:51.:11:59.

the help of the crowd. They will draw from their performance against

:12:00.:12:02.

New Zealand. They could have won that game. They have gone with tried

:12:03.:12:15.

and trusted seven aside. It will be a massive game. They are is the

:12:16.:12:24.

cheer for Scotland. This is the fourth of the quarterfinals today to

:12:25.:12:28.

decide who will join Samoa, Australia and New Zealand in the

:12:29.:12:29.

quarterfinals. How about that? Cornal Hendricks

:12:30.:13:15.

with the cutest of passes. The Springbok, the test player, scores

:13:16.:13:23.

first in the quarterfinal. Cecil Afrika drew both men. Keep up the

:13:24.:13:29.

code to Cornal Hendricks. I think that South Africa might have to much

:13:30.:13:32.

pace for Scotland in the quarterfinal. Scotland have to stop

:13:33.:13:38.

the runners, and one of them is that man, Cornal Hendricks. He made his

:13:39.:13:44.

debut for the Springboks a couple of months ago. He is still making an

:13:45.:13:48.

impression in this boil down version of the game.

:13:49.:13:56.

-- boiled down. Branco du Preez with the drop goal. This was similar to

:13:57.:14:18.

the game against New Zealand. Scotland went down, but they managed

:14:19.:14:20.

to claw their way back. again. They are going. Taken by Mark

:14:21.:14:59.

Bennett. Chris Dry was absolutely superb there, put Roddy Grant under

:15:00.:15:02.

pressure. The Rugby Sevens specialist, he came up against him.

:15:03.:15:12.

Chris Dry's reading of the situation and the contact got the turnover

:15:13.:15:24.

ball. Three minutes played. South Africa with the first try. Twice

:15:25.:15:30.

told medallist at the Commonwealth Games, at Manchester and Delhi. They

:15:31.:15:45.

know what it takes to win. They have got their noses in front, Branco du

:15:46.:15:50.

Preez up for the fight, he has watched his way under the posts. A

:15:51.:15:57.

moment of individual brilliance from Branco du Preez. He has got a better

:15:58.:16:04.

step than Fred Astaire! This man is absolutely electric. The ball into

:16:05.:16:12.

Mac hands. Taking on the sweeper -- in two hands. Scotland conceding two

:16:13.:16:18.

early tries. Branco du Preez, not the biggest

:16:19.:16:47.

rugby player in the world, five feet six, but here's a pocket dynamo and

:16:48.:16:56.

showed a clean pair of heels on that occasion to outstrip the Scottish

:16:57.:17:05.

defence. The restart goes long, forcing Scotland to try and rebuild

:17:06.:17:08.

from almost back on their own try line. Colin Gregor does likewise.

:17:09.:17:24.

Picked up by Cecil Afrika. Seabelo Senatla, we have talked about his

:17:25.:17:31.

pace. Kissing the whitewash as he streets towards the try line. They

:17:32.:17:40.

tend to kick along at the restart. A lot of the teams we have seen, they

:17:41.:17:43.

will challenge the ball on the ten yard line, but South Africa are

:17:44.:17:47.

happy to push the ball deep into Scotland's half. Branco du Preez got

:17:48.:17:57.

a little bit of a knock. He has not been able to run off the muscle

:17:58.:18:02.

tweak he was feeling after that conversion. He has gone. South

:18:03.:18:11.

African ball. Flicked back by Frankie Horne, this is Cornal

:18:12.:18:19.

Hendricks to Seabelo Senatla. South Africa have three. They have the

:18:20.:18:25.

tightest of grips on this quarterfinal at Ibrox. Seabelo

:18:26.:18:35.

Senatla up to eight tries. Just using the ball so well, South

:18:36.:18:42.

Africa, this team is full of peace. -- full of pace. Bryan Habana might

:18:43.:18:53.

have been drafted in at the last minute. It would have been wonderful

:18:54.:18:58.

to see him here at the Commonwealth Games. They have not needed him.

:18:59.:19:06.

Seabelo Senatla has pace in bag full is. People ask me who the star names

:19:07.:19:13.

are, and you mention the names to people, and because these players

:19:14.:19:18.

are not exposed we do not see them week in and week out, but we are

:19:19.:19:21.

watching some of the best Rugby Sevens players in the world. Seabelo

:19:22.:19:27.

Senatla, Cecil Afrika, they are legends. The South African team are

:19:28.:19:36.

very well drilled. It is all part of the wider debate as we head into the

:19:37.:19:41.

Olympic Games as to how many of the more established and bigger known

:19:42.:19:47.

names, the likes of Stuart Hogg and Sean Lamont, will make it to Rio de

:19:48.:19:56.

Janeiro. It is a different game, and the gap between the 15th and the

:19:57.:20:02.

Sevens has not become unbridgeable but it is a formidable step. We are

:20:03.:20:10.

just getting a little preview of the names that will be entertaining us

:20:11.:20:16.

in Brazil, and we hope Seabelo Senatla will be one of those. Justin

:20:17.:20:24.

Geduld will be there as well, and Cornal Hendricks. An opportunity

:20:25.:20:29.

just before the break to give Scotland some hope. Scott Wight

:20:30.:20:36.

providing the link. Can the profit from the turnover that was hard-won.

:20:37.:20:45.

Bennett. Goes beyond Frankie Horne. If Bennett can get the ball away,

:20:46.:20:47.

Bennett. Goes beyond Frankie Horne. If Bennett can get the there might

:20:48.:20:51.

be problems for the Springboks. Colin Gregor was up in support. It

:20:52.:20:56.

comes back towards us. Lee Jones runs away. , two Bennett. Scotland

:20:57.:21:06.

lost their shape. South Africa have so much more width on the ball.

:21:07.:21:12.

Grant with a couple of hops and a step wins a couple of metres. Time

:21:13.:21:18.

is up at the end of this first-half, is this Scotland's time? Bennett.

:21:19.:21:29.

Jones. Scott Riddell, not far away, opening up for Bennett! Ibrox in

:21:30.:21:38.

full sail. Scotland going for the first time in this Commonwealth

:21:39.:21:47.

Games quarterfinal. Bennett was involved in that movement for times.

:21:48.:21:53.

His tackle led to this try. He had three runs and three attempts. He

:21:54.:21:57.

got back on his feet in support of Lee Jones. Recycled himself well,

:21:58.:22:04.

and Bennett, the Glasgow Warriors, has certainly impressed. The

:22:05.:22:14.

conversion goes over, who knows how important that might be in the end?

:22:15.:22:23.

21-7. The executives watching this must be thinking this was a very

:22:24.:22:28.

good decision to put the Rugby Sevens on. How brilliant has this

:22:29.:22:31.

entertainment been? Who knows what the next seven minutes might hold?

:22:32.:22:39.

That try has given Scotland hope. Yes, but I think they struggled with

:22:40.:22:43.

the aggressive South African defence. The contact was good.

:22:44.:22:51.

Scotland defended very narrowly, and the width of the South African

:22:52.:22:57.

passing cars them a lot of trouble. But how crucial could this be? This

:22:58.:23:03.

was the first time Scotland had any sustained pressure or possession.

:23:04.:23:09.

That is a lifeline. Without that, I do not think Scotland could get back

:23:10.:23:18.

into the game. It can turn quickly. That has given Scotland a breath of

:23:19.:23:23.

life. We talk about the impact players, how crucial will Stuart

:23:24.:23:31.

Hogg and Sean Lamont be? That was a tough first half, they had to defend

:23:32.:23:35.

hard. I think we will see the bench being used. We have already seen

:23:36.:23:41.

Branco du Preez go off, so Scotland are still in this. Scotland have got

:23:42.:23:46.

to keep the width. Spread the South African defence. The point was made

:23:47.:23:54.

in commentary that Scotland lost their shape very badly and had

:23:55.:23:58.

nowhere to go. That is what we keep talking about the difference, that

:23:59.:24:04.

is the discipline of the game. That's it. He we go, Scotland still

:24:05.:24:08.

in this. The next try could be crucial.

:24:09.:24:14.

South Africa in control, Scotland have given themselves a lifeline.

:24:15.:24:29.

Can they really the big fish? They have the vocal support of the

:24:30.:24:34.

Scottish crowd. But the South Africans are mighty powerful team.

:24:35.:24:42.

Stuart Hogg. A penalty against Frankie Horne for playing the ball

:24:43.:24:47.

in that situation. Stuart Hogg is on. To try and inject some piece.

:24:48.:24:56.

Scotland have a penalty from further away.

:24:57.:25:00.

This is Vernon. Up to the 22. Gregor, the skipper, Haag is on his

:25:01.:25:17.

way. -- Stuart Hogg. It is a different Scottish team, Stuart

:25:18.:25:30.

Hogg! How close, that close! The complexion of the game is changing.

:25:31.:25:34.

We talked about the lifeline that time. Scott Riddell, such a great

:25:35.:25:46.

work or is. -- work horse. Lee Jones, his sixth try of the

:25:47.:25:49.

tournament. Steps inside the South African defence. What is crucial is

:25:50.:26:00.

the additional two points. He did not make the connection. However, we

:26:01.:26:12.

have what seemed unlikely when South Africa were streaking ahead with

:26:13.:26:17.

their tries. We actually have a contest.

:26:18.:26:26.

That is brilliantly taken. Absolutely brilliantly taken. Justin

:26:27.:26:36.

Geduld, rising the highest. Tackle only, yes! Kyle Brown involved in

:26:37.:26:50.

the move, releasing Senate life -- Seabelo Senatla.

:26:51.:27:04.

Usain Bolt and Seabelo Senatla are not going to face-off on the track

:27:05.:27:09.

at Hamden, but it would be nice to watch. Nine tries in four games. He

:27:10.:27:17.

is going to get another couple of games under his belt the way he is

:27:18.:27:19.

going. Stuart Hogg gave him a novel lot of

:27:20.:27:29.

room. -- and awful lot of room. bit steeper for Scotland, but they

:27:30.:28:05.

still got their climbing boots on. He will not give up. Vernon will

:28:06.:28:15.

never give up. They have a penalty. Three minutes. To try and ease their

:28:16.:28:22.

way back into this contest and perhaps into the semifinals. Scott

:28:23.:28:29.

Wight, going around in circles, enveloped by the green shirts. Kyle

:28:30.:28:37.

Brown on the floor, the captain, unable to gather. Colin Gregor to

:28:38.:28:48.

the player down and was penalised. Whiteley wins the penalty, South

:28:49.:28:53.

Africa will take all the piece out of this. Cecil Afrika is not wearing

:28:54.:29:00.

a number on the back of his jersey, he will kick the ball. South Africa

:29:01.:29:05.

have won this game. They are in control of the Rugby football.

:29:06.:29:11.

Emphasising the gap Scotland are trying to bridge, South Africa were

:29:12.:29:15.

the closest challengers to New Zealand in last year's tournament

:29:16.:29:21.

between October and May that goes around the globe. South Africa led

:29:22.:29:27.

it for a while before New Zealand eventually won once again. Scotland

:29:28.:29:34.

finished 12th. As much as they are competitive, on a month by month

:29:35.:29:40.

basis, South Africa have proved their mettle in the smaller version

:29:41.:29:45.

of the game. They are in control of this quarterfinal, Cecil Afrika

:29:46.:29:49.

makes your that may well be enough to conclude business... Makes sure.

:29:50.:29:58.

I just wondered, if Scotland could attack or defend this fast defence,

:29:59.:30:06.

it is all set piece play, isn't it? The players know each other inside

:30:07.:30:07.

out. The applause once again. Cecil Afrika enjoyed himself at

:30:08.:30:23.

Celtic Park in the middle of the week, enjoying himself at Ibrox

:30:24.:30:30.

today. IRB's World Player Of The Year not so long ago. These are the

:30:31.:30:38.

kind of Rugby Sevens star is that will be stars in the front room by

:30:39.:30:43.

the time we get to Rio de Janeiro. These teams last met in the cup

:30:44.:30:59.

quarterfinal in Delhi. Stevie Gemmill knows it is a long-term

:31:00.:31:02.

process. It is about finding the formula that works when Scotland

:31:03.:31:10.

maximise the resources. Perhaps this is as good as it is going to get,

:31:11.:31:15.

Stuart Hogg. Looking for one last dans before we called time. He has

:31:16.:31:22.

been brought in from the fifteens into the sevens squad. He will be

:31:23.:31:29.

disappointed, has not quite clicked for Stuart Hogg. Still very much

:31:30.:31:36.

part and parcel of the future of Scottish rugby. Is that the party

:31:37.:31:47.

stand? The stand has been turned into the party stand. We are

:31:48.:31:58.

watching on the ancient old main stand, a listed building. Even if

:31:59.:32:06.

Scotland's adventure is ending, the memories of what they have achieved,

:32:07.:32:09.

and what Scotland has achieved in hosting the Rugby Sevens will be

:32:10.:32:12.

remembered for a long time. Will this end in a Scottish try?

:32:13.:32:28.

Johnston has the opportunity. He could have just messaged it, then

:32:29.:32:32.

there might have been a scorer. Off the field, off the field! A

:32:33.:33:00.

little bit of argy-bargy to round off what has been a fantastic Sunday

:33:01.:33:06.

lunch time's entertainment. You have got to give credit to South Africa.

:33:07.:33:12.

The try before half-time gave Scotland a chance, but South Africa

:33:13.:33:18.

stepped it up. Really impressive. A very southern hemisphere teams to

:33:19.:33:22.

the semifinals this evening. Both matches promised so much. We look

:33:23.:33:25.

for to seeing you back at Ibrox later on tonight.

:33:26.:33:27.

matches promised so much. We look for to seeing you -- look forward.

:33:28.:33:33.

Thank you very much indeed, disappointment England, Scotland and

:33:34.:33:37.

Wales. We are now going to break through the news. Shooting and

:33:38.:33:41.

boxing still to come. Every sport is live on the website. BBC .co 8/
