Rennie pleased with Glasgow’s attitude

Rennie pleased with Glasgow’s attitude

The bonus point victory against the reigning League and European Champions returned Rennie’s men to the top of Conference A with one game to play and could turn out to be a “big moment” in Glasgow’s quest to reach the Final at Celtic Park.

“This time last year we limped into the play-offs – we had a massive lead,” Rennie said

“I wasn’t that upset seeing Munster get home [by beating Benetton] Friday night because it kept the pressure on us. I think it brought the best out in us.

“We’re aware of what it’s going to take to win a title. So, we’ve got three big games left hopefully.”

The victory comes off the back of a 30-7 win against Ulster at Scotstoun less than a week before and Rennie is pleased at the way his team has reacted to being knocked out of the Heineken Champions Cup Quarter Finals.

“We were pretty embarrassed by the Saracens performance, especially defensively,” He said. “So a couple of big Irish sides who carry hard has been a good test for us, and it’s about attitude.”

Next up for Glasgow are Edinburgh at Scotstoun in two weeks’ time. The Warriors are yet to record a win against their neighbours from along the M8 this season but know if they do win they will guarantee themselves a home semi-final.

“They’re the type of team that can choke you,” said Rennie. “They don’t play an enormous amount of footy, but they defend very well and they’ve got a good kicking game. We know what’s coming.”
