Scotland head coach Steve McCormack believes there is more to come from his side after overseeing yet another nailbiting World Cup encounter.

The Bravehearts followed up their thrilling 26-24 victory over Tonga on Tuesday night at Derwent Park with a 30-30 draw against Italy in Group C at the same venue to remain undefeated.

McCormack was thrilled with the effort of his side, but believes they are capable of improving ahead of their clash against the United States - a match they must win to boost their hopes of qualifying for the knockout stages.

“I’ve got to a stage now where I do enjoy it, probably a few years ago I wouldn’t have done but the older you get and the dafter you get you start enjoying it a bit more,” said McCormack.

“I enjoy watching a team that gives absolutely everything. As a team that’s twice in four days that we’ve given absolutely everything.

“If we can mix that with a bit of skill like we’ve shown, then we’ve got a chance of getting to the quarter-finals on Thursday without playing exceptionally well.

“We’re looking forward to what’s going to be a fantastic game, USA have been one of the outstanding teams of the competition so far, so that’s looking to be a magnificent game.”
