PARKER CONFIDENT

Gary Parker says that he is upbeat despite Scotland Women Rugby Union’s defeat. Wednesday’s defeat means the Scots missed out on a play-off place for fifth place and face Ireland in a play-off for seventh and eighth.

“We’ve only been together as a squad for eight months and are a developing side,” said Scotland coach Parker.

“If we can finish seventh, it will be a big achievement for this squad and give us a platform to build on.”

The Scots had already lost to the Canadians as they finished third in the opening group games.
