Stirling 15-16 Heriot’s: An agonising end for County

There was more agony for Stirling County, going down to Heriot’s by the narrowest possible margin. The home team were winning with four minutes left but, put under pressure, they conceded a soft penalty and simply ran out of time. Stirling did however get a losing bonus point which took them off the bottom of the Super6 table for a day at least.

Edinburgh 16 - 16 Bordeaux Begles: Capital side foiled by French fightback

Last weekend’s French opposition, Agen, sit one place off the bottom of the Top 14 table while last night’s visitors find themselves one off the summit. Richard Cockerill must have anticipated a sterner test of his team’s resilience and he got one, Bordeaux Begles fighting back from a 16-6 deficit early in the second half to snatch a draw in this European Challenge Cup Pool 3 tie, thanks to a Mathieu Jalibert penalty two minutes from time.

Leinster are once again shorn of their long lock but will that be enough to swing the final the Warriors’ way? We take a look where this match will be won and lost.

Leinster have learned lessons from Saracens setback says Rhys Ruddock

Several of Glasgow’s players have pointed to that 56-27 shellacking at the hands of Saracens as the game that got them into this Pro14 final, such has been the desire to make amends after that stinker. Sadly for them, their rivals on Saturday are thinking along similar lines after finishing a somewhat closer second to the same opposition in the Champions Cup final only 11 days ago.
