Warriors win thriller in La Rochelle

It was a game that shredded the nerves of the Warrior Nation, but it was Dave Rennie’s men that were singing on Saturday night after edging a titanic tussle in La Rochelle.

Dave Rennie’s men overturned a half-time deficit to claim a 27-24 victory at the Stade Marcel Deflandre, with Callum Gibbins, Niko Matawalu and Kyle Steyn all crossing in a vital win for the Warriors’ quarter-final aspirations.

A remarkable win yesterday for @GlasgowWarriors. With 40 minutes on the clock they were 12 points down against La Rochelle with the scoreboard showing 18-6. Only once in the club’s history have they overturned a bigger deficit to win a @ChampionsCup match. #WeAreWarriors
