Matt Fagerson hopes Glasgow will benefit from injury lay-off

Matt Fagerson won’t celebrate his 21st birthday until July so time is very much on his side, but the back row is not going to use that as an excuse for failing to drive forward with his rugby career as if there is no tomorrow. Rather than look back at satisfaction with what he has achieved so far – three full Scotland caps and key player status at Glasgow Warriors – the forward is frustrated that he hasn’t managed more.

Glasgow coach Jason O’Halloran: Injuries can sometimes be a blessing

It is unrealistic for a team to expect to go through a full season without a few bumps in the road, and Glasgow Warriors were knocked off target towards the end of December and into January when they lost four games out of five, with a growing cast of injured players adding to the feeling that the Scotstoun outfit had suddenly become pretty vulnerable after a rampant start to the campaign.

‘One game’ and Glasgow’s Zander Fagerson will be ready for Scotland

Zander Fagerson will play his first game of rugby since undergoing surgery on a broken ankle last September when he lines up for Glasgow Warriors against Cardiff Blues this evening, and head coach Dave Rennie has backed the tighthead to use this game as a launchpad to jump straight back into the Scotland squad for next week’s Six Nations clash against France in Paris.
