Five-star night for Matthews

Five-star night for Matthews

It's a night that neither Johnny Matthews nor Glasgow Warriors will forget in a hurry.

Records were sent tumbling at Scotstoun on Saturday night, as the Warriors booked their place in the last-eight of the EPCR Challenge Cup in style with a 73-33 victory over the Dragons in front of the Warrior Nation.

73 points set a new mark for the most points ever scored in a match by a Glasgow Warriors team, breaking the previous best of 70 in victory over Zebre Parma at Scotstoun in 2016.

The 11 tries registered by Franco Smith’s men also set a new club record, beating the 10 scored in the same win over Zebre Parma seven years ago.

Yet the evening belonged to one man, as Johnny Matthews became the first Warrior in club history to score five tries in a single match.

Here are some of the best stats and reactions to Johnny’s record-breaking night…

Of course, however, the king of stats had the deep dive ready to go.
