Benetton Treviso 19 - 38 Glasgow Warriors
GUINNESS PRO14 match played at Stadio Monigo on Saturday January 4th 2020 | No comments
George Horne went over for two tries Warriors ran out 38-19 winners over Benetton in an entertaining PRO14 encounter at the Stadio Monigo this afternoon.
Scrum-half George Horne scored two of Glasgow's six tries as the Warriors claimed an impressive victory but the Italians were in it for the majority of the game.
Sam Johnson, Peter Horne, Nikola Matawalu and Andrew Davidson also crossed with Peter Horne adding four conversions.
Glasgow's bonus-point win leaves them third in Conference A on 24 points, 12 behind second-placed Ulster.
Sam Johnson put Warriors ahead inside two minutes on Saturday, going over after fine work from Nick Grigg and Kyle Steyn on the right hand side.
A try from Peter Horne put Warriors further ahead after Steyn cut a great line off a maul before feeding the stand-off.
Benetton were proving a handful at set-piece and hooker Hame Faiva was driven over from a five-metre maul before Warriors struck back through George Horne courtesy of a pass from brother Peter.
Again Benetton came back and, despite resolute Glasgow defence, Braam Steyn muscled over from close-range, Allan converting to make it 19-12 at the interval.
With Aki Seiuli in the sin-bin Warriors weathered the storm early in the second-half and started to impose themselves on the game.
In the 56th minute a powerful run from Bruce Flockhart put man-of-the-match George Horne in for another score.
Dave Rennie's men found themselves having to dig deep after seeing their lead reduced to seven points and also losing Nick Grigg to injury, the Scotland centre carried off on a stretcher after a clash of heads with Cherif Traore.
However, Glasgow regrouped and a late score from Matawalu after a fine long pass from Huw Jones, and sharp work from Andrew Davidson ensured they would be returning to Scotland with a maximum points haul.
