Scotland centre Alan Tait remains in World Cup contention after an injury scare proved less serious than initially feared. Tait suffered a lateral ligament strain of his left ankle in Tuesday's 40-20 win against the Edinburgh Reivers at Netherdale. Following treatment, Tait's swift recovery suggests he will contend a place in Scotland's World Cup opener against South Africa on 3 October.

Canada, who face France in their World Cup opener on 2 October, cruised to a 54-18 win over British Columbia in Vancouver on Tuesday night in their latest World Cup warm-up match.
