Glasgow Warriors 17 - 7 Newcastle Falcons

Friendly match played at Firhill on Friday August 12th 2011 | One comment

Tommy Seymour marked his debut with a try
A quick two-try burst from Glasgow was enough to edge out Newcastle 17-7 at Firhill last night.

Tries by new boy Tommy Seymour and Stuart Hogg in a three minute spell, both converted by Duncan Weir, capped a promising performance from the Warriors.

Glasgow started brightly with Troy Nathan, Tommy Seymour and Henry Pyrgos looking particularly sharp but Newcastle opened the scoring with Redford Pennycook, the openside flanker, going over after a scrum near the Glasgow line.

Another debutant Scott Wight got Glasgow on the scoreboard with a penalty after 20 minutes and the former Melrose man was settling in well with a couple of neat breaks and fine kicks to touch.

The Warriors were putting together some nice phases of play and they were rewarded ten minutes into the second half when Pat MacArthur picked up a loose ball on halfway and after some fine running and handling Tommy Seymour went over for the score.

Duncan Weir converted and the home support were back on their feet minutes later when Stuart Hogg ran a perfect line to connect with a crossfield move to go over for another converted try.

There was no further scoring as both teams made numerous changes. For Glasgow there were plenty of positives with Nick Campbell and Rory Pitman also catching the eye.

Glasgow Warriors head coach, Sean Lineen told glasgowwarriors.org: "It's great to get a win on the board first up. The guys showed a great level of fitness to hit back in the second half and closed the game out.

"I was impressed with how quickly the new boys got to grips with playing in a Glasgow jersey and it was great to see two good scores from Tommy Seymour and Stuart Hogg.

"It's a positive start and we will take confidence from it going into our next game at Sale [Friday 26 August]."
