Horne converts, 22-10


Glasgow try

Glasgow playing some lovely rugby in loose play here. The backs and forwards working well in support to move it around the fringes of Edinburgh’s on coming defenders. Finally, a wide ball to Ally Miller who is sitting on the North Stand wing, is wide open and he runs in for his second club try in two weeks.


Glasgow penalty

Another opportunity to attack the line out maul.


Ben Afshar comes on for Kyle Rowe. He goes to scrum half and George Horne moves to the wing. Other recent changes.

Edinburgh gather and clear under pressure. Line out, halfway.


Horne slots the conversion and Glasgow move back in front. 15-10

Glasgow’s patience pays off. The maul try is successful on the fifth attempt, and there is no doubt who is appearing from the bottom of that pile of bodies.

Gilchrist sin bin

Another two penalties handed to Glasgow on the five metre line and it’s second row Grant Gilchrist who is sent to the bin.

Ross Thompson pins Glasgow right into Edinburgh five metre line after, the Edinburgh forwards are caught of side defending George Horne’s box kick.
