Weekend Update

A first Guinness PRO14 win of the season, Scotland bow out of the Rugby World Cup and Canada win hearts and minds - it's all in our latest Weekend Update.

Warriors off the mark in the Guinness PRO14

It was a Saturday night to savour for the Warrior Nation, as Dave Rennie’s men claimed a hard-fought 17-13 victory over Cardiff Blues at Scotstoun to record their first Guinness PRO14 win of the new campaign.

Callum Gibbins and Nick Frisby touched down for early tries, before the Glasgow defence took over to secure the win.

Scotland edged out by Japan

In one of the games of the tournament so far, it was the host nation Japan who progressed from the do-or-die match in Yokohama yesterday, edging a thrilling match with Scotland 28-21 to secure a quarter-final against South Africa.

It means the tournament comes to an end for the men in blue, despite the best efforts of all involved.

Wow. What an atmosphere!! #JPNvSCO #AsOne #RWC2019 pic.twitter.com/wiGXtnyWTT

Canada win hearts of Japan and rugby world

Their final pool match against Namibia may have fallen foul of the weather, but Canada – including Glasgow Warriors’ very own DTH van der Merwe – ensured that their time in Japan wouldn’t be forgotten in a hurry as they helped out with the recovery effort in Kamaishi.

Siua gets first RWC start

It might have been Tonga’s last match of the tournament, but it was a memorable moment for Glasgow Warriors tighthead Siua Halanukonuka yesterday as he made his first start in a Rugby World Cup match in their win over the USA.
