“It was certainly a game of two halves.” | Max Williamson

A game of two halves, Glasgow went into half-time pointless. But the Warriors came out of the tunnel in the second half more energised after a disappointing first 40 against Cardiff.

Scoring his first try for the club, Max Williamson spoke to glasgowwarriors.org on the disappointing start but more promising second half.

“It was certainly a game of two halves. We really struggled in the first half: we were poor physically.

“We let Cardiff dominate us. When we came in at half time, we knew we had to turn it around and if we didn’t, they were going to beat us. We didn’t want to lose at home.

“Thankfully, we came out at the second half with a different attitude. We managed to grind out the win, but it was tough.”

A tough half-time discussion motivated the Warriors to come out in the second half stronger. The re-energised home side played exciting rugby, going through the phases, and making strong carries. After a series of phases, Williamson got over the line for his first try for the club.

“I wasn’t really thinking about scoring a try at the time,” Max said. “I just knew we had a job to do. It was good to get the try.

“I personally felt like I had a poor first half so scoring that try was a confidence booster.”

Glasgow came away with the win after a second try from Lucio Sordoni and a penalty scored by Duncan Weir.

Final score Glasgow 17-13 Cardiff.
