THE MAGNIFICENT SEVEN! LEE IN TOP SCORING FORM FOR SCOTLAND AT IBROX

FORMER Selkirk player Lee Jones did the club and his country proud in the Commonwealth Games Rugby Sevens at Ibrox at the weekend, scoring a total of seven tries as Scotland battled bravely for one of the medal positions. Although winning through to Sunday’s quarter-finals, the Scots had to give second-best to a super-charged South African team, who went on to defeat New Zealand in a hard-fought final.

Speaking to the selkirkrfc.com web site on Monday, Lee had mixed feelings about Scotland’s performance over the two days. “Day one was good for us, as we pushed New Zealand all the way and pulled off a convincing victory over Canada to keep us in medal contention going into Sunday.

“Against South Africa we gave them too much of a head start, and although we managed to pull things back either side of halftime, they finished really strongly to end our medal hopes. I thought the South Africans were one of the best sevens teams I’ve ever played against, and after they beat us I knew they’d prove a handful for New Zealand.”

Scotland suffered further disappointment in the plate semi-final against England, being pipped 15-12. “This was the third time we’d given our opponents a three-try lead,” said Lee, “and at this level it’s always hard pulling back that kind of deficit. Still, the boys competed really well in each of these ties, but when you’re up against the world’s two top sevens sides you can’t afford to let them get away early on.”

As well as being in Scotland’s starting line-up for each of their five ties, Lee also scored in every game - notching two tries against New Zealand, two against Barbados and scoring one try in the matches against Canada, South Africa and England. His seven-try total equalled the seven tries he scored in Delhi four years ago, making him Scotland’s top Commonwealth Games try-scorer of all time.

The Ibrox two-day tournament also went into the record books by attracting the biggest ever crowd for any world sevens tournament, with the two days of the competition attracting 180,000 spectators. “It was an amazing atmosphere,” said Lee, “with an incredible noise level for every tie, regardless of who was playing. The whole crowd seemed to be having a great time, and it was a brilliant showcase for international sevens.”

Away from the on-field action at Ibrox, Lee was able to chat with former Selkirk 1st XV captain Scott McColm and his son Aaron, while Lee’s parents met up with Selkirk Rugby Club president Mick Craig and his wife Audrey, also in Glasgow to watch the sevens. On Monday at the Merchant City, Lee met another ex-Selkirk player - Jim Jackson, twin brother of Selkirk committee member Bill Jackson.

Lee, who is rooming with Stuart Hogg in the athletes’ village, has also been keeping an eye on the progress of Scotland’s ladies hockey team, while also following the fortunes of girlfriend Charline Joiner in the cycling competition. “It’s been an incredible experience,” said Lee, “and the atmosphere at every venue is fantastic. I’ve got to know one or two of the boys in Scotland’s boxing squad, and this kind of camaraderie is what makes the whole event so special.”

Here’s hoping Lee enjoys the rest of his week in Glasgow, and can help cheer on Scotland to its greatest ever Commonwealth Games medal haul.

ONE MAN & HIS DOG – JAMES KEEPING FITNESS LEVEL UP BY TAKING IT TO THE MAX!

TAIL OF THE UNEXPECTED. Selkirk 1st XV hooker James Bett doesn’t believe in taking things easy at weekends during the summer, and most Sundays can be found running up the Corbie Linn track on his way to the Three Brethren. Invariably accompanying him is family pet Max, who doesn’t seem to mind joining the 21-year-old player in a spot of pre-season training. Keep up the good work James! [Photo: JOHN SMAIL]
