Dave Rennie signs new Glasgow deal and plays down Australia link

Dave Rennie has insisted that his decision to renew his Glasgow contract for only a year was based on family considerations rather than an interest in taking charge of the Australian national team, and that he might yet be open to agreeing a longer stay at Scotstoun. Speaking after the extension to June 2020 was announced, the Warriors head coach also revealed that he will lead a smaller coaching group next season, with a replacement due to come in for Jonathan Humphreys but not for Mike Blair.

Scotland 7 - 28 Italy: Positives for women despite defeat

Scotland’s Six Nations campaign began with a defeat, but Shade Munro’s team 
can take considerable heart from the substantial improvement they have made in recent months. They lost 38-0 to Italy as recently as November, but, while at times under heavy pressure last night, they showed resilience in defence and uncompromising competitiveness at the breakdown.

Alarm bells ring for struggling Glasgow Warriors

The festive season is over now for the rest of us, but for Glasgow Warriors it never began. Saturday’s narrow defeat in Treviso was their third loss in a row in the Pro14, and from enjoying a double-figure lead at the top of Conference A they are now down to second, a mere five points clear of fourth-placed Connacht.

Richard Cockerill urges senior players to ‘step up’for Edinburgh

With only three changes from last week, there is a settled look to the Edinburgh side that will take on Scarlets tonight – but only in the sense that so many players remain unavailable. Between Scotland call-ups and injuries, more than 20 members of Richard Cockerill’s squad have been ruled out of the Pro14 match, meaning that, as against Zebre last week, sections of the team are severely lacking in experience.
