Scotland were beaten in the Bowl tournament semi-final clash at the Glasgow Sevens after Spain upset the odds to clinch a 10-7 win.
The hosts had won the previous two meetings between the sides but they couldn’t make it three in a row.
The Spaniards took an early 5-0 lead after taking advantage of a gap in Scotland’s defence.
Things nearly got worse with the visitors coming close to a second try only to be penalised for a knock on.
Scotland replied through moments later through a speedy break from Andrew Turnbull, who was stopped yards from the line.
Despite a disappointing display, Scotland got their try when Turnbull powered over to give the hosts a 7-5 half-time lead.
However Spain continued to attack after the break and their pressure paid off when a missed tackle allowed them to score their second try of the match with two minutes remaining.
And they held on to secure a famous victory infront of a disappointed home crowd.
Scotland coach Graham Shiel said: “Overall I'm happy with the four out of the five performances this weekend but ultimately the outcome was to get to a final and to give the crowd something to cheer for.
“The crowd have been fantastic all weekend and we are disappointed that we can't give them more to cheer for.”
