Matt Taylor argues case for the Glasgow defence

However disappointed Matt Taylor was at the end of the 80 minutes against Munster 
last Saturday, Glasgow’s defensive guru conceded a professional admiration for the way that the Irishmen went about stopping one of the best attacks in the competition from crossing the whitewash.

Glasgow narrowly fail high-intensity test

Glasgow 12 - 14 Munster: Warriors lose to late Saili try

In a match of tiny margins it is perhaps appropriate that the only try earned Munster a somewhat fortuitous victory and a place in the Champions Cup quarter-finals. Whether Glasgow can join them there depends upon winning next weekend at Leicester and other results elsewhere, their destiny no longer in their own hands.

Allan Massie: Tough task for Glasgow Warriors

It’s crunch time for both Glasgow and Edinburgh today. Victory would almost secure them a place in the knockout stage of their respective European Cups. Defeat wouldn’t necessarily eliminate them, but would come close to doing so, especially in Glasgow’s case, since their last pool match is against Leicester at Welford Road. They might go into that needing a four-try bonus point win to earn one of the best runners-up spots – a very tough proposition.

Glasgow 29 - 15 Cardiff: Peter Murchie at double for Warriors

As a warm-up for one of the biggest matches in Glasgow’s history this performance was a tad underwhelming, at least in the first half, before someone lit the blue touch-paper under the Warriors who then produced the goods, and three tries, in the second 40.

Allan Massie: Law-makers must make it profitable to go low

Glasgow were well below their best in Italy last week, yet came away with a bonus point win. Some of their play was surprisingly sloppy, and weak defence gave Treviso an easy try in the first minutes of the match. Glasgow of course raised their game when they had to, though Stuart Hogg’s try was fortuitous. If Tommy Allan’s grubber hadn’t bounced conveniently into Hogg’s grasp, Treviso might well have run on to it and scored. That would have been 12-0.
