The 1872 Cup is Glasgow's, Zander becomes a centurion and a brand new magazine - catch up on everything that's been happening in the latest Weekend Update.
1872 Cup secured
For the first time since 2016/17, the 1872 Cup will be staying in Glasgow during the off-season after the decider went the way of the Warriors on Friday night.
An inspired Glasgow performance saw the home side run out 29-19 victors at Scotstoun, much to the delight of players, staff and fans alike.
That was a classic!
?️ “Mate it was a nail-biter towards the end there.”
?️“We felt we owed the supporters a real Glasgow performance and they delivered that.”

⚔ Cole Forbes bursts through and that’s the fast start that @GlasgowWarriors would have been hoping for!
It’s the fact he just seemed to pop out of nowhere, moving so fast he was almost invisible. ? had to watch in slomo to see that one come together.
It’s been a full-blooded match at Scotstoun so far, with Fraser Brown’s try giving @GlasgowWarriors the advantage ⚔️
Unbelievable defence from @GlasgowWarriors‘ Ratu Tagive! ?
100 up for Zander
It was an extra special evening for Zander Fagerson, as the tight-head became the youngest prop in club history to reach his 100th appearance for Glasgow Warriors.
The 25-year-old put in his usual industrious performance, with co-captains Ryan Wilson and Fraser Brown insisting on him lifting the trophy to boot.
For the first time in four years, @GlasgowWarriors have regained the 1872 Cup! ⚔
Congratulations on a very hard fought win, nice to have that wee cup back over here! ? Big raps to @kylesteyn on a great performance and a try after so long out, and to centurion @ZanderFagerson ?? #WeAreWarriors
