The Qantas Men’s Sevens will meet Portugal in the Bowl quarter-final of the Glasgow Sevens as they look to bounce back from a disappointing showing in the pool stage of the tournament.

The Australians won just one of their three pool games in the penultimate round of the HSBC Sevens World Series, with losses to Argentina and Fiji, their only win coming against Spain.
In the opening match of the tournament the Qantas Men’s Sevens were starved of possession against a feisty Argentina, with the Pumas taking a 10-0 lead at half time before running away with a 17-10 win.
The Aussie men looked much stronger against Spain as they scored six tries to notch an impressive 42-14 win.
Their final match against Fiji was a tight contest, with Australia opening the scoring before trailing 12-10 at half time. The Australians scored first again in the second half to take a 17-12 lead but a late try sealed the 19-17 win for the Fijians.
Australia and Portugal meet in the Bowl quarter-final at 7:52pm (AEST) tonight, Sunday 5 May. 
The playoff stage of the tournament will be broadcast live on Fox Sports 3 from 7:25pm (AEST) tonight.
