A LOCAL rugby development officer has won a place in Scotland’s sevens squad.

Scott Riddell, Midlothian Council’s Rugby Development Officer, has been selected for the squad for this weekend’s inaugural Emirates Airline Glasgow Sevens and also for the Marriott London Sevens on May 12 to 13.

Scott – who already has 18 caps and 16 tries for the national sevens team – joined the council’s sports development team last year.
