Seven Reivers make National Sevens squad
November 22, 1999
Chris Paterson is one of seven Edinburgh Reivers named in the 12-man Scotland squad for the Dubai Sevens next month.
Paterson, Scotland's most recent cap, will provide the pace at stand-off as the Scots look ahead to the tournament in the United Arab Emirates.
Reivers winger Conan Sharman is another speedy player named the squad which meets Morocco, Japan and Samoa in the group stages on December 2 and 3.
Manager Arthur Hastie said: ``Sharman not only has pace but has had a lot of sevens experience with London Scottish.''
Glasgow Caledonians pair Rory Kerr and James Craig, who have both starred in Dubai in the past, are unavailable due to injury.
Scotland: D Burns (Glas Caledonians), G Burns (Edin Reivers), C Sharman (Edin Reivers), S Lang (Edin Reivers), D Lee (Edin Reivers), C Mather (Edin Reivers), S Nichol (Melrose), C Paterson (Edin Reivers), N Penny (Watsonians, captain), M Di Rollo (Edin Reivers), A Roxburgh (Kelso), M Waite (Glas Caledonians).
