FT: Glasgow Warriors 43-25 Leinster

Well well well, welcome back Warrior Nation. The BKT United Rugby Championship 2023/24 is underway.


Glasgow penalty try

Surely, that secures the win. It’s a penalty try after a 15 metre maul drive from the Warriors. 43-25


Glasgow penalty

A break from scrum-half George Horne and pass wide to Sebastian Cancelliere gets Scotstoun on their feet. However, the cover defence holds firm and a loose ball needs gathered.


Glasgow try

He’s back after making his Scotland try-scoring debut with another signature try, it’s Johnny Matthews crossing the whitewash three phases from his own line out. Horne converts. 36-25


Glasgow penalty

Approaching the last five minutes Glasgow win a line out penalty ten metres from the Leinster line. Johnny Matthews hits his target.


Leinster try

The visitors are relentless with their attack though and quickly work their way back up to Glasgow’s line. A pass out wide to winger Tommy O’Brien and a dive over the line needs reviewing, though referee Evans is satisfied and awards the score. 29-25


Glasgow snub another attack

More than ten phases trying to snipe Glasgow’s line, but a final momentous clear out from Scott Cummings saw the home side end another Leinster skirmish.


Glasgow penalty

Glasgow gather a great deal of territory from the boot of Jordan winning a penalty that the stand off sends to the Leinster 22. Glasgow are now also back to 15 players having not allowed Leinster to score any points while depleted.


Leinster miss out on try

After a long review of the TMO footage the referee, Craig Evans, deems a covering tackle from Stafford McDowall has pulled centre Liam Turner in to touch as he is about to place the ball down in the corner.


Glasgow try

Absolutely beautiful, Tom Jordan gathers a Leinster up and under perfectly amongst four of his opposite men. Space then opens up in front of him, and then what followed couldn’t have been more perfect.

In support is George Horne for his first touch of the match, which is also his 100th time pulling on the Glasgow Warriors jersey. Horne turns the pace on and it’s a foot race to the corner. The scrum half makes it and scores Glasgow’s fifth try of the night. 29-20


Glasgow line out

The home side are managing the clock well so far, forcing an over pass from their opposition and winning a line out on their own ten metre line.


Held up

Off the back of the carding Leinster’s subsequent attack is ferocious, hitting phase after phase. However, Glasgow hold firm with Rory Darge and Oli Kebble holding up the Leinsterman crossing the whitewash.


Cancelliere sin binned

A blow for the home side as winger Sebastian Cancelliere is handed a yellow card for a deliberate knock on.


Leinster try

Leisnter open the scoring in the second half through a try from Lee Barron off a line out penalty. Byrne converts. 24-20


Back underway

We’re back underway at Scotstoun Stadium. Glasgow lead the charge 24-13. It’s a beautiful still night, perfect for another 40 minutes of fast paced rugby.


HT: Glasgow Warriors 24-13 Leinster

After an onslaught from Leinster’s forwards Glasgow end the half winning a penalty and clearing their lines.


Leinster penalty

Glasgow hold firm on their line, but the referee hands Leinster another penalty and they opt for the tap and go.


Leinster line out

Leinster will have the last chance at an attack in this half winning a line out deep in Glasgow territory.


Bonus point try

This time it’s the forwards turn at scoring. An impressive maul that couldn’t be contained by Leinster trundles over the whitewash and hooker Angus Fraser emerges from the pile claiming the spoils. That’s his first try for the club too. 24-13


Glasgow try

In one of the most opportunistic moments of the URC yet, Glasgow score their third try of the game. First a scrum collapsed, then Jamie Dobie gets caught trying to clear the ball away, but still managed a loose pass. Then a chip, more like something from a game of football, from Stafford McDowall and a perfect bounce into the hands of Huw Jones saw the outside centre dive in for try number three.

Jordan converts. 19-13


Glasgow scrum

As we approach half time Glasgow win the scrum just outside Leinster’s 22.


Leinster try

A penalty and then a close quarters battle on the Glasgow line, Leinster break ground scoring their first try of the match through prop Jack Boyle. Byrne converts and Leinster edge in front. 12-13


Leinster attack

Leinster work through a handful of phases looking for routes through the Glasgow defence. The host’s keep them held to the middle of the park however.


Glasgow try

It’s a quick turnaround on scores here. Glasgow scoring their second try of the night through Sebastian Cancelliere.

It was a lovely break out wide in front of the north stand, Cancelliere then got the ball away to Gregor Brown who made 15 metres. Cancelliere, able to continue his run at pace, reappeared in support and the try line opened up in front of him. He had to dive for to the whitewash, and Leinster were in about him on the covering tackle but the touch down was good and after review the try is given. 12-6


Leinster double score

Byrne takes another strike at the posts and slots three more points for the visitors. 7-6


Leinster respond

It’s a quick response from the visitors with Harry Byrne slotting a penalty, adding Leinster’s first points.


Josh McKay opens the scoring

The set piece unfolds perfectly. A clean take at the line out and the ball threaded into the middle of the park to Rory Darge who then makes the initial break and offload to the supporting Josh McKay. The full back turns on the afterburners and runs in under the posts, for the opening score of the night. Tom Jordan converts. 7-0


Glasgow penalty

Tom Jordan gathers more territory for the Warriors. A big hit and covering tackle from Zander Fagerson then Oli Kebble winning the penalty.


Glasgow scrum

Glasgow then match the defence efficiency, and winning a scrum on halfway.


Leinster clear

Leinster look effective on their own five metre line, putting in big pressurised hits on their opponents. Glasgow can’t find a way through and loose the ball at the ruck.


Glasgow scrum on five

Leinster disrupt Angus Fraser’s throw into the line out but can’t gather the loose ball, handing possession back to the hosts. Jamie Dobie feeds the scrum.


Glasgow scrum

Glasgow match the pressure though and immediately force the knock on out of the scrum and win their own set piece and then a penalty. Tom Jordan slots into the corner.


Jones and McKay link up

Huw Jones showing some quality skill breaking the line getting behind his defender and offloading the ball to Josh McKay, allowing him to make yards out wide.

Leinster cover well though and force an error and win the scrum.


Penalty reversed

The line out is won on the five metre line, but Glasgow are penalised for obstruction and the penalty is reversed. Leinster clear.


Starting with intent

Glasgow Warriors’ opening exchanges are full of momentum, with Sebastian Cancelliere making a break on the wing in front of the main stand. A wide pass back inside from Henco Venter then allows the forwards to gather territory in the short battles. All leading to a penalty win and kick to the corner.



It’s Tom Jordan who gets the 2023/24 season underway!
