Seven-try Warriors blow away lacklustre Zebre

There was every excuse not to show up at Scotstoun last night, a cold wind, modest opposition, the absence of several stars, but still the little ground was stowed out, a capacity crowd according to the official figures, even if a few empty green seats could be seen.

Glasgow Warriors’ quest to make the Pro12 play-offs for the sixth successive season is hanging by a thread.

Glasgow’s Greg Peterson chasing Pro12 and 1872 cup double

It must have been the very definition of the term “mixed emotions” when Glasgow lock Greg Peterson was whistled off the bench in the Saracens’ match Sunday past. The American international has been sidelined since September with a shoulder injury and the only rugby he had under his belt since then was two outings for Glasgow Hawks in the BT Premiership.

Allan Massie: Glasgow capable of troubling mighty Sarries

You struggle to reach a Wimbledon quarter-final for the first time and you find you are up against Roger Federer or Andy Murray. This, as it were, is where Glasgow find themselves tomorrow, playing the European and English champions, Saracens, at Allianz Park. Saracens have never lost a European match there: played 12, won 12. In the Champions Cup, as in the Six Nations, it’s hard to win away from home. Few do so, nobody yet at Allianz Park.
