FT: Benetton 9-19 Glasgow Warriors

Glasgow penalty

Ben Afshar comes on at scrum half. Dobie moves to the wing and Weir puts Glasgow on the Benetton 22 for a line out penalty and final chance to attack.


Glasgow scrum

Just five minutes to play and  Glasgow win another scrum, following an unforced error knocked on from another Dobie kick.


Glasgow try

Jamie Dobie has slotted a number of chips over the top of the Benetton defensive line, and they have not all come off.

But, this time. It bounces perfectly for Stafford McDowall, he breaks away from his opposite men, and has Tom Jordan in support who dives in under the posts.

Try number three for Glasgow. And, the extras added by Duncan Weir.


Umaga scores
