Apologies, no match report this weekend but here’s a thread to discuss Edinburgh’s great win over Agen away in France and Glasgow’s faltering defeat to Northampton and their utterly dominant scrum.
Agen 6-27 Edinburgh
Match report on Edinburgh Rugby website
Glasgow 15-26 Northampton
Glasgow made too many basic errors chasing the game and the Saints’ scrum was just too strong a source of penalties and even turnovers after Pat MacArthur went off within the opening minutes. The visitor’s lead at half time was really too much to overcome, and Northampton line speed in midfield put the half backs and centres under too much pressure to conjure any magic save Horne’s try near half time.
New father Stuart Hogg will want to forget one or two of the crucial errors that let in tries, and Finn Russell has had better days in a Glasgow shirt too.
We can at least be thankful Jonny Gray kept the approach right for most of the game, but the execution was poor.
