Cardiff Blues 29 - 19 Glasgow Warriors

Celtic League match played at Arms Park on Friday February 13th 2004 | 2 comments
Glasgow's attempt to pull themselves clear of the Celtic League basement was dashed again when they suffered a second-half collapse at the Arms Park.

The Scots led at the interval only to be overhauled by three quick Cardiff tries after the break.

Glasgow made a slick start, and, after Colin Gregor narrowly missed a 40-metre penalty attempt, Glenn Metcalfe and Jon Petrie combined to send centre Alan Bulloch across for the opening touchdown in ten minutes.

The Blues hit back to level seven minutes later with a converted try from Jon Vaughton, but the visitors edged back in front against the run of play thanks to Bulloch's second score of the night. Sean Lamont did the initial damage with a surge out of defence, and the ball was recycled from Graeme Beveridge to Bulloch via Gregor with home tacklers nowhere to be seen.

Vaughton then displayed his pace again to complete his own double, and when Nick Walne cruised in eight minutes later there was no way back for the Glasgow. Nick Robinson converted his own try soon afterwards, making sure of the bonus point. Sub Joe Beardshaw managed a late consolation try for the visitors.

Gordon, just a quick word of congratulations (and thanks!) for this outstanding website. Being so far away, it gets a lot of attention from us. We appreciate it. Go Glasgow - it is just a matter of time before they turn the corner.

Regards

Ray
