Cardiff 32 - 28 Glasgow Warriors

United Rugby Championship match played at Cardiff Arms Park on Saturday March 26th 2022 | No comments

Kyle Steyn and Sebastian Cancelliere impressed, but Warriors couldn't see out the win
Glasgow Warriors lost out to Cardiff in this evening's URC meeting at the Arms Park.

Warriors leave Wales with two bonus points but there will be frustration as a second half slump, once again, saw them lose a match they really should have won.

Glasgow looked set for victory as they led 28-15 early in the second half but were unable to counter the momentum Cardiff gained to come back to snatch the win.

Sebastian Cancelliere, Sam Johnson and Fraser Brown claimed first-half tries for Glasgow. Jason Harries opened the scoring early on for Cardiff and Theo Cabango grabbed a try before the break.

Cancilliere's interception extended Glasgow's lead early in the second half but, when he was sin-binned, Willis Halaholo reduced the deficit for Cardiff.

Cabango's try second and Jarrod Evans' conversion completed the comeback.

Evans then added a late penalty to seal victory, denying Glasgow the chance to return to third place in the table.

"Cardiff are a good side at home, they have beaten Leinster this season and only lost once here, but when you have a comfortable lead at 50 minutes you should see that game out," admitted coach Danny Wilson after the game.

"For fifty minutes it was the best rugby we have played away from home this season, and then for the last 30 it was the worst we have played.

"We need more mental toughness and ruthlessness away from home, though I am not taking anything away from Cardiff who dominated the game for that last 30."
