Forbes proud of tough shift by Glasgow to win over Ulster
Glasgow Warriors defended Scotstoun once again to keep their unbeaten streak going on Friday night against Ulster. Cole Forbes spoke to glasgowwarriors.org about how the game was tough but showed how strong Glasgow can be.
He said “It was a really tough grind. We knew it was going to be a tough shift with Ulster above us on the table. Especially with this weather we know we would have to go out there and defend really well and be really accurate.”
The game on Friday was certainly a game of two halves. Despite Glasgow being first on the scoreboard, Ulster was leading at half time. Speaking on this element Forbes said, “ The first half we started really well and then our discipline let us down. But then in the second half we ground out a good win and the boys should be proud of that.
Speaking more on this change between the two halves, Forbes credits the talk at half time for what motived them to play the way they know they can do.
“The squad started really well in the first half but then Ulster showed up and did well in the last 20 minutes before half time.
“We knew that in the second half we would have to play more technical, play in the right end of the park and be more accurate. We did that, and we were able to get the win.”
With the squad heading to South Africa next week to play the Lions, Forbes said there is plenty to build on and be confident in their game.
“It’s going to be different conditions over there but the boys can build on it from this week and be confident going in.
Friday was a record breaking sell-out with the Warrior Nation out in force. Once again the squad credit the passion and encouragement that can be heard on the pitch.
“It’s incredibly good to see a sold out Scotstoun and we can definitely hear them on the pitch. Even in this weather they turned up, so big ups to the fans.”
