Scottish sides PROJECX Waterboys and the Bovril Boys have returned home from Sweden with silverware.

The Waterboys, led by Ayr skipper Pete McCallum, had won the Stockholm 10s event in 2016 and at the weekend lifted the main trophy again.

On day one they won their pool and then on day two they started off with a comfortable 62-0 win in the last eight against Sodertalje.

The last four tie against Baltrex-Siauliai was tougher, but they won 24-0 with Andrew Goudie, Kerr Gossman, Will Wardlaw and Blair Macpherson bagging tries.

In the final they managed to see off the Stockholm Exiles 24-5.

Once again PROJECX, International Power and Water Investments, JA Resorts & Hotels, Ace Property Management, Sarcogent Solutions and Ethigen are supporting the team. They also have a range of new sponsors including Kyloe Restaurant (Signature Pubs), Orion Systems, St. Julians Advisory, 4 Navitas and Bureau with Akuma Sports as the equipment supplier.

In the second level of the men’s tournament the Bovril Boys proved too strong, beating Linköping 19–0 in the final.

The Bovril Boys begun when two of the players, Euan Bowen and Blair Ward, were at university in Aberdeen and wanted to form a sevens team to play in the Aberdeen and St Andrews University Sevens tournaments.

The first squad they put together consisted of friends they knew and things have gone from there.

They are supported by First XV, The Whistlestop Barber Shop, Budgy Smuggler, Shanghai nightclub and Maximuscle.

Linköping won the Ladies event.
