Weekend Update

The Rugby World Cup gets underway, the Warriors touch down in South Africa and the squad put smiles on faces - catch up with what's been happening with our Weekend Update.

Scotland downed in Yokohama

It was a less than ideal start to the Rugby World Cup for Scotland in Yokohama yesterday, as Ireland showed their strength in the opening match of Pool A for both sides.

Fiji into action early

Glasgow’s Fijian contingent are already well into the swing of this year’s tournament, as they play their opening two matches in the space of five days. Niko Matawalu came off the bench as John McKee’s men were eventually edged out by Australia in Sapporo, whilst new signing Mesu Dolokoto will join his new club-mate in the squad to make his first appearance of the competition against Uruguay on Wednesday.

Uanivi captains Namibia

It’s not just current Warriors making their mark in Japan – in addition to the 16 members of Dave Rennie’s squad representing their respective countries, 11 further former Warriors are strutting their stuff on the game’s biggest stage. One such player is former Glasgow second row Tijuee Uanivi, who captained his Nambian side in their pool opener against Italy on Sunday morning.

Warriors land in South Africa

There are now just four days to go until the first game of the new Guinness PRO14 season, with the Toyota Cheetahs lying in wait in Bloemfontein on Friday evening. The squad touched down safely in South Africa over the weekend, and were straight into the thick of things as preparations continue for the new campaign.

Squad help out at Rainbow House

Prior to their departure for the Rainbow Nation, the squad was chipping in at Rainbow House in Irvine, helping to construct a community support garden at Ayrshire Central Hospital.

Business Club event details confirmed

The club confirmed the details for their opening Business Club event of the 2019/20 season at the end of last week, with members invited to ScottishPower’s headquarters to cheer on Scotland as they take on Samoa.
