Glasgow want second win of campaign against USAP

Glasgow Warriors' Ollie Smith, who has been recalled at full-back by Scotland

Glasgow Warriors seek a second win of the competition as they welcome USAP in the EPCR Challenge Cup on Friday.

The Scottish side got a victory on the road at Bath Rugby last week, edging a 19-22 contest.

USAP had less success on home turf, going down 5-19 to Bristol Bears.

The Pool A match kicks off at 20:00 (UK and Irish time) at BT Murrayfield in Edinburgh and can be watched on Viaplay-Premier Sports and FloRugby.

Key Quotes

Glasgow’s Cameron Neild: “It is important for the team to build on where we left off against Bath. That is our intent and where everything we did was purposeful. If we bring the same determination and the right attitude, we will be successful against Perpignan on Friday night. People are dying to improve, so personally, I believe results will be better than they have the first few games. It’s already started with the two away wins and then we have Perpignan and the double derby. It’s exciting times.”

Glasgow Warriors

Glasgow see off USAP

Rufus McLean opened the scoring for Glasgow against USAP

Glasgow Warriors secured back-to-back wins in the EPCR Challenge Cup as they held on for a 26-18 victory over USAP at BT Murrayfield Stadium on Friday night.

Scores from Rufus McLean, Huw Jones and Sebastian Cancelliere, plus a penalty try, did the business for the Scottish region as they followed up on their Round 1 win at Bath Rugby.

USAP briefly threatened a turnaround thanks to efforts from Jake McIntyre and Lucas Dubois, but Posolo Tuilagi’s yellow card hampered them over the latter stages.

Glasgow were in control with 23 minutes played as wing McLean and centre Jones finished off well-constructed moves, fly-half Duncan Weir adding the extras to both scores.

But USAP fly-half McIntyre dotted down following a fast break from the visitors, reducing the deficit to nine points at the break.

Centre Dorian Laborde nudged a penalty on 56 minutes to further eat into Glasgow’s lead, and USAP would snatch the lead on the hour mark as replacement wing Dubois raced over and Laborde converted.

However, Glasgow went back on the offensive and their pressure on the USAP line led to a penalty try and a yellow card for replacement lock Tuilagi.

That made the hosts’ mission somewhat more manageable, and despite a Laborde penalty moving USAP to within three points, wing Cancelliere crossed late on to wrap up their victory and secure the bonus point.

Glasgow and USAP clash again in Round 3 as the Scottish region travel to the Stade Aimé Giral on January 14.
