Weekend Update

A bonus-point win in Treviso, the Warrior Nation out in force and a fan favourite touches down - back for the New Year, catch up with everything that's been happening with our Weekend Update.

Winning start to 2020 for Warriors

It was a super six for the Warriors in Italy over the weekend, as Dave Rennie’s side claimed a bonus-point victory over Benetton to kick-start the new decade.

Two tries from George Horne – in addition to scores from Sam Johnson, Pete Horne, Niko Matawalu and Andrew Davidson – and a resolute defensive shift gave the men from Scotstoun the victory, moving them up to third in Guinness PRO14 Conference A.

Petrus makes club history

Saturday also saw a piece of club history made at the Stadio Comunale di Monigo, as Petrus du Plessis became the oldest player to appear for Glasgow Warriors in a competitive league match.

Safe to say the man himself enjoyed the occasion…

Warrior Nation out in force

It wouldn’t be a Glasgow Warriors away match without the vocal support of the Warrior Nation, as the club’s supporters once again showed why they’re so highly regarded by the club and across Europe.


All the action in Treviso came at the end of a week that saw the return of one of Glasgow’s favourite sons to Scotstoun, much to the delight of the Scotstoun faithful.

Leone Nakarawa arrived in Glasgow after signing a short-term contract with the Warriors, marking a return to the club he left in the summer of 2016.

Next up…

The Warriors return to Heineken Champions Cup action at Scotstoun this weekend, as English Premiership leaders Exeter Chiefs travel north for round five of Europe’s premier club competition.

A sold-out Scotstoun will provide a top-quality atmosphere on Saturday afternoon, so why not get in the mood by listening to the latest episode of Warriors Weekly and watching the highlights from last weekend?
