Sale Sharks 28 - 0 Glasgow Warriors

Friendly match played at Edgeley Park on Friday August 26th 2011 | 3 comments

Stuart Hogg put in a good display at full-back
Glasgow's second and final pre-season fixture showed they still have some work to do before the start of the new RaboDirect Pro12.

The Warriors went down to a 28-0 defeat to Sale Sharks at Edgeley Park tonight and will have to be more clinical and disciplined if they want to take anything from next Friday's campaign opener against Ulster at Ravenhill next Friday (ko 7.05pm, live on BBC ALBA).

Both teams were evenly matched in the opening stages and it wasn't until the 28th minute that Sale stand-off Nick MacLeod gave his team the lead with a penalty from near halfway.

Glasgow went further behind with a try by Sale full-back Rob Millar. MacLeod missed with the extras but landed another penalty to give the Sharks an 11-0 lead at the half.

Glasgow made a raft of changes at half-time and started the second period well but mistakes ruined the chance to turn pressure into points.

MacLeod struck another penalty before Sale skipper David Seymour went over for a converted try to take the score to 21-0.

A disapointing night was complete when Ed Kalman was sin-binned and from the resulting scrum Glasgow conceded a penalty try for collapsing.

I thought we would be over this. Play well one week then be appalling the week after.

After Newcastle game SL said he was happy where we were etc etc etc. Now we appear to have gotten worse (overnight)?!

Season ahead, hmmm, really worried!

Really not the result we needed at this stage. Losing badly is one thing but failing to score? No excuse for that.

Fortunately however we have a big televised game on Friday and a good result should go some way to erasing this one and encouraging folk to part with their cash and get along to the Munster game.
