Bourgoin ended a run of eight successive Heineken Cup defeats with a much needed home win at Stade Pierre Rajon.

In front of a near capacity crowd the home-side just did enough to keep their noses in front of a stubborn Glasgow outfit, who shocked their hosts by notching the first points of the match with a penalty from outside half Dan Parks, but that proved to be their only time they made a mark on the scorecard.

Benjamin Boyet levelled moments later before moving Bourgoin into a 6-3 lead at the interval with another penalty.

The fly-half was also the creator of the night’s only try in the second half – making a lethal break before looping a long pass to try scorer David Janin.

Glasgow were unfortunate not to add to Parks’s earlier penalty and came within a whisker of a first-half try, when a Colin Shaw chip to the right-hand corner left Bourgoin’s defence in disarray.

Graeme Morrison emerged from the subsequent melee of players, but the try was ruled out after being referred to the television referee.
