Exeter Chiefs 42 - 0 Glasgow Warriors
Champions Cup match played at Sandy Park on Sunday December 13th 2020 | No comments
Dannyy Wilson lamented Glasgow's poor discipline Glasgow Warriors endured a miserable afternoon at Sandy Park as they went down to a 42-0 thumping at the hands of Exeter.
Two big favourites with Glasgow supporters got on the score sheet on Sunday - sadly, Stuart Hogg and Jonny Gray are now earning their crust for the hosts - as Warriors were dismantled by a ruthlessly efficient Exeter team.
Sam Simmonds crossed in a maul and Jonny Gray went over from short range for a 14-point lead at the break.
Gray's fellow former Warrior Hogg also scored against his old side.
Jack Yeandle's try sealed a bonus point which could prove crucial in this season's shortened group-stage format.
Wing Olly Woodburn and returning England lock Jonny Hill gave Exeter's points difference an extra boost with a try each before the final whistle.
The heavy loss could be extra costly for Glasgow as they lost Peter Horne, George Turner and Tommy Seymour to head knocks.
"It was very frustrating and very disappointing," said Warriors head coach Danny Wilson afterwards. "If you give 10 penalties away in the first half against a team that you want to keep out of your 22 then you're going to kill yourself, which is what we did.
"We were downwind for the first half but we were stuck in our own 22, and for the wrong reason: discipline. That led to the second half going into the wind and they kicked well to pin us back.
"We were chasing the game from inside our 22. I think we had 37% of the territory and yore not going to challenge the European champions with that while conceding as many penalties as we gave away."
