Hello, welcome back to Glasgow at the 20th Commonwealth Games and
plenty of live sport is still going on. Red button for Ken you against
South Africa in the rugby sevens. Boxing and badminton. On BBC Two we
will go to a game that was played earlier in the rugby sevens between
Scotland and Canada. Scott Hastings and Andy Moore are your
commentators. COMMENTATOR Scotland will have the
kick-off. They are playing in blue against Canada, in white. A great
take by Harry Jones. Recycled. Sean juke. Going out wide. A real tussle
on that far side with Scotland now. Moonlighting. Canada with that early
exchange. And we can see the contact area is so key. He says that he was
holding onto the ball. Colin Gregor is quite happy to slow things down
for Scotland. Incidentally, there is a full tribute of him on the station
wall. I saw it the other day and it is absolutely enormous. Grant taking
root one for Scotland. Scott White, Gregor. A little show of the ball. A
tackle here by Canada's Sean Juke. Richie Burnett on. Getting trapped
in a number of players in that far side. They will have two stretch
this Canadian defence. Canada are very good. Wraparound play. This is
Lee Jones. A good pick-up by Jones. Good work on the wraparound. I
really like the look of this team. They have grown in confidence as
this tournament has gone on. A tackle coming in here! It was almost
away. A superb tap tackle high, trainer. Still on the attack. Lee
Jones. Lee Jones for the opening score. That is raising the roof at
Ibrox. Jones went over but go back a step and Batman, number five, Colin
Gregor, what a fantastic pass. -- can this man. Just drifting the ball
out inside. In on the inside. Moonlighting. Left stranded. Covered
for the corner. Jones coming inside. On his right foot. The opening score
and the game, much to the delight of the crowd and Gregor has got the
opportunity to add to the lead. Colin Gregor, the Scotland all time
points scorer in the IRB, in the sevens World Series, he has added
the additional two points. It is first blood here for Scotland. These
teams met in the semifinal of the sevens back in April. Only three
points separating the teams. Canada winning on that occasion 10-7.
Scotland on the attack. Lee Jones, the try scorer. He is up in support.
It is a great atmosphere. The crowd are willing every move by the
Scottish team. Nick Bryant with a loud blast of the referee whistle.
Scotland penalised for playing it on the ground. This will take a little
bit of edge out of this game. What often happens in sevens rugby is
that the flow of the game, the momentum can just switch in an
absolute second. Defence turns to attack and attack turns to defence.
Do I note a hint of excitement? I love my sevens. The game of course
was invented here. Winning the line-out ball from the Canadian
throw, Scotland. This is Bennet. Bennett is up against the excellent
Sean Juke. He is a strong runner. Growing in confidence as the
tournament is going on. And talking about strong runners, Grant taking
it up the middle. John moonlight with excellent technique here. --
Moonlight. He gets the support. A good tackle by Colin Gregor. The
defence has got to be goodbye Scotland. The first real opportunity
from Canada. -- has got to be good for Scotland. Dumped to the ground.
Juke stepping back in. Colin Gregor comes for the tackle. Advantage
being played. Scotland pushed offside. Great retention by Canada.
Just spilling the ball. Harry Jones wanted to get the momentum back into
the attack for Canada. Concentration from the Scottish players. It is
excellent at the moment. Canada have got the ball. They are keeping their
shape. Colin Gregor, the captain, snapping at their heels, calling the
shots, organising it. The eyes and ears of the team at the moment.
Harry Jones here. He miss read the play, Juke. It was a loose pass. One
here for Canada. That is a try. Power and pace here. He might well
have got that down despite the best efforts of the opposition. Yes,
confirmation from the officials. And here we can see, I think it was a
mix-up in play but how many times do you see that, a bouncing ball?
Sometimes the defenders standing off. He tries his best. Over the
touchline. Canada did exceptionally well. Power and strength. Slipped
over in the corner. He has won nine caps for the Canadian side. The
conversion has been missed. I have mentioned that these teams have
played each other this season on four occasions. Three times, Canada
winning and only once have Scotland, and the average
differential winning margin is 4.25. At the moment the deferential
is less than that. Just a couple of points. There is an opportunity.
Vernon goes in under the post. What a killer blow. Ten seconds on the
clock. Burnham scores. Scotland take one back and extend the lead. --
Vernon. It was a slightly flatter kick from the restart. Straight
through to Vernon. And when he got into his ears, a good effort with
the left hand. -- got into his stride. He did emerge at the end of
the sticks. Extras added again by Gregor. So, the crowd just take a
little bit of a breather. The excitement, you could cut it with a
knife around this famous Ibrox Stadium. Half-time score, Scotland
leading with a couple of converted tries. 14-5. One converted --
unconverted by Canada. Who is going to get through for the last
remaining spot? Will Scotland hold onto the lead? Can Canada come back?
Momentum is certainly with Scotland. Canada straight out of the blocks
for this second half. As you said, sometimes it is about just stopping
that momentum. I think Gregor will say that he probably got away with
that one. A great kick in the end and the result is fantastic.
Probably, I think he was very fortunate. He knows his game inside
out, he really does. Every single team had a captain's round yesterday
and the one team that had what we call a blow out was Scotland. They
knew the intensity they would have to play at here. This is Mark
Bennett. Jones. Then it gets the workaround. Can he get the corner?
Juke has got it. Mark Bennett going for the corner first of all instead
of going for the hit step. Yes but you have to credit him for getting
across. This is good sevens from either team. This tie is very much
in the balance. Canada will have to get on the scoreboard next if they
are to challenge this Scottish door. -- scoreline.
Nathan, he will have the throw. It is a pressure throw where they are,
Scotland. Oh, early jumpers catching, the try will not be
allowed. John moonlight called it for himself. -- Moonlight.
Richard Vernon, the try scorer for Scotland. Lee Jones coming back very
well. Colin Gregor, playing the sweeper role. He always looks so
assured. Like he has got plenty of time. On the counterattack. Grant!
Grant does not have the legs to go in at the corner. Recycled
possession. On the try and mountains. Has scored! Surely
Scotland now into the quarterfinals. -- on the try and
Bennet has scored. He only knows one way and that is forward. Retaining
possession. And a lovely step. Here we see Grant. He has tied up a
couple of defenders. Moonlight coming up. Stepped off the left
foot. And then it over for the try. And -- and then Bennett over for the
try. Which you would hope would take Scotland through. And he has slotted
the extras. Colin Gregor has slotted eight conversions against Barbados.
One against New Zealand. And he has got three here. Canada can still get
back into this tie. But they will have to do something quick. Three
and a half minutes. Plenty of time still. Douglas. Brought down.
Scotland will just play the clock. He will stick that into the main
stand at Ibrox, surely. He knows very well that at this moment the
clock is your friend. Just eating up the seconds. Just checking where the
mark was. Oh... Was that a little bit greedy? A bit of a mistake by
Gregor. Possibly the first mistake that he has made. Just looking at
the clock. Canada have got to score three times. I have seen it done
before. 90 seconds. It is possible. It was a loose pass. Canada take the
ball away. Coming off the bench, this man. This time, I think you
will see that Colin Gregor will make his touch. Great play. Great steel
by, sure. Opportunity. -- great stealing. Here is Stuart Hall. A
great play on that far side from the Canadian player, Justin Douglas. At
sprinting Stuart Hogg. -- he has outsprinted Stuart Hogg. Stepping
back into the tackle. Moonlight, the Canadian skipper. Justin Douglas.
Justin Douglas, an experienced campaigner. He has played in 11
events on the IRB circuit, scoring 12 tries. He has got plenty of is
pace. -- plenty of pace. Harry Jones is on that far outside. Scotland
have got numbers back. Great defensive work. Scott White having
to meet the tackle. And Scotland will be through to the
quarterfinal, to the knockout stages here at Ibrox. Big play from Lamont.
Scott Waddell comes off. Just making a couple of changes. They are really
pumped. They have played well. Scotland had a real opportunity to
take New Zealand early on. New Zealand just took that game by 17
points to 14. 21 points -5 the scoreline at the moment. And they
will play either South Africa or Kenya in the quarterfinals. South
Africa and Kenya have still to play each other. That will be coming up.
So if you are at home stay with us for all the action here at Ibrox.
Moonlight. Symptomatic perhaps of the frustration. Full-time, says the
referee. And the crowd are standing in Ibrox. 50,000 supporters.
Cheering going around this wonderful arena. And the respect between these
teams. But it is in Scotland who have come away with the victory.
Fabulous performance from Scotland and a great atmosphere. This is how
the quarterfinal line-up looks. New Zealand will play against Kenya.
South Africa have beaten Kenya by 20-nil. South Africa now face
Scotland. Those matches are from midday tomorrow on BBC Three.
Tomorrow is also the first day of the athletics which gets underway
with the men's and women's marathon bright and early tomorrow. Before
that Clare Balding and Mark Chapman will be on BBC One with a fun packed
look back at all the best bits of the day. Earlier this evening
19-year-old Adam Peaty took a memorable goals with the new
Commonwealth Games record in the 100 metres breaststroke. Ross Murdoch
took the bronze. What a wonderful night. A wonderful moment for Adam.
Well played, young man. A big future lies ahead of him.
And look at the medals table. Making interesting reading. Australia and
England now have 17 gold medal. Scotland got four gold medals today,
their best ever tally in the Commonwealth Games, it equals that.
That is all from us at BBC Two. I hope you will join us tomorrow to
find out who will be in sevens heaven.
