Glasgow Warriors 56 - 24 Zebre

GUINNESS PRO14 match played at Scotstoun on Friday February 14th 2020 | No comments

Peter Horne pulled the strings for Warriors
Warriors ran in eight tries in their win over Zebre in an entertaining match at Scotstoun this evening.

George Horne and Mesulame Dolokoto both touched down twice for the hosts, while Matt Fagerson, DTH van der Merwe and Tom Gordon also crossed the whitewash and the Warriors benefited from a second-half penalty try.

The Warriors did not have things all their own way, however, and led by just four points at half-time after tries from Daniele Rimpelli and Marcello Violi.

But the result was not in doubt by the time Pierre Bruno added Zebre's third five minutes from time.

This victory keeps the Warriors in touch with the third-placed Cheetahs in Conference A, with the South African side facing Leinster in Dublin on Saturday.

Glasgow Warriors head coach Dave Rennie said: "We got five points, so that's good. I found I was really frustrated throughout the game, mainly because we started well then decided we couldn't kick into that breeze and lost control of the game for 25 minutes.

"I thought we responded well after half-time, kicked better and were clinical when we got opportunities. We lacked a little bit of intensity when we needed it and let in a couple of soft ones so a bit to work on. We'll have to be better next week against Dragons."
