Analysis
Colin Gregor, former Scotland Sevens captain: "I think Ben Toolis and Lee Jones will feel very hard done-by."When you run New Zealand so close, to be dropped - Lee Jones is out the squad completely - is a real shame."He was looking very sharp over the last couple of games, but Sean Maitland is a quality winger that's come in."It is definitely a strong-looking squad again."
