Stuart Hogg makes his presence felt on Glasgow return

Glasgow finally notched their first European win of this campaign at their last attempt in front of their home fans who will have been delighted by the performance but may just wonder where this form has been hiding these last few months.

Glasgow Warriors 28 - 21 Exeter Chiefs: Stuart Hogg returns in win

With nothing but pride to play for, Glasgow displayed heaps of the stuff, producing their best performance of this European campaign to thwart any hopes Exeter had of progressing in the Champions Cup.

Allan Massie: England haven’t ‘stolen’ our players

A lot has changed in rugby in the last 20 years, but some things remain the same. This was evident in Dublin last Sunday. Glasgow were in the match for almost 20 minutes. Then they were right out of it. In that opening quarter 
Glasgow’s Ali Price was buzzing and full of vim; but it was his opposite number Luke McGrath who was named man of the match. Well, we’ve always known that in attack a scrum-half is dependent on the quality of ball he receives. Leinster delivered clean front-foot ball and McGrath revelled in the opportunities
granted him. Glasgow struggled to win ball and when they did so were often already going backwards. So McGrath ran free while Price was in chains.

Stuart Hogg returns as Glasgow coach focuses on performance

Scotstoun’s answer to the Seventh Cavalry came thundering over the hill, too late to save Glasgow’s woebegone European campaign but perhaps still able to salvage some pride against the Chiefs. The 
Warriors last went without a win in Europe 13 years ago, in season 2004/05.

Scotland’s Stuart Hogg ‘itching to play for three weeks’

If Scotland supporters are 
feeling a flutter of anxiety over the fitness of star player Stuart
Hogg as his injury absence lingers on and the Six Nations opener fast approaches, it is nothing compared to the frustration of the man himself.

Leinster v Glasgow: Why home side are overwhelming favourites

Glasgow play Leinster today in the Champions Cup although there is only one side with anything other than pride at stake. After an appropriately brave start at Exeter Chiefs, the Warriors have yet to land a blow in Europe, out-muscled and out-fought, despite Callum Gibbins’ best efforts, and how Glasgow could do with some of his dog in today’s fight.

Stuart Hogg still missing for Glasgow as Six Nations looms

Dave Rennie wanted to talk about the team he had selected to play Leinster tomorrow afternoon in the Champions Cup tie that means nothing to Glasgow but plenty to the hosts. Instead he found himself fielding any number of questions about the man who wasn’t there.

The trip to face Leinster in the European Champions Cup on Sunday is meaningless for Glasgow but there is as much chance of them lifting the trophy in May as there is any of the Warriors players or coaching staff describing the remaining pool games in such terms.

Zebre 20 - 40 Glasgow: Warriors pick up bonus point win

Dave Rennie, the Glasgow Warriors head coach, is a pragmatic soul. He knows this was a far from perfect performance from his side, but they still came away with a bonus point win and a lot of players getting valuable game time as they gear up for the period when they have to cope with both injuries and players off on Scotland duty.
