Ally Miller made his Scotland Sevens debut after joining up with the squad for the Las Vegas and Vancouver tournaments.
The back-rower scored against Canada, Kenya, France and Japan to make an impressive mark for the Scots, helping them sit eighth in the overall standings heading in to next month's Hong Kong tournament.
Drawn against the hosts, New Zealand and Russia Scotland failed to record a victory in their pool leading to them competing for the Challenge Trophy on day two. Despite being knocked out in the semi-finals, Scotland found their form to win their final two games, finishing in 13th picking up valuable series points.
Scotland 7s Head Coach Calum MacRae said: “Ally Miller showed how dominant a ball carrier he can be. For his further development as a XVs player he will have taken a lot from playing at this level of competition. It’s a tough schooling but he coped well.”
He added: “We now set our sights on Hong Kong and know we have improvements to make before then.”
