Megan Gaffney scored two tries as Scotland suffered a last-gasp 24-20 defeat to Japan at Scotstoun.


Gaffney opened the scoring in the second minute and grabbed her second try in the 56th minute before Rachel Malcolm powered over from a rolling maul to put Scotland 20-10 in front.

However, Makoto Ebuchi’s try in the 71st minute was converted by Ai Hirayama to reduce the deficit and substitute Ayasa Otsuka glided over in the 79th minute to seal victory for the visitors, with Hirayama converting from in front of the posts.
