Glasgow win after poor start

Glasgow emerged winners in this challenge match with Scotland Under-21s, but not until a nightmare start saw the Warriors concede two converted tries in the first four minutes.

Tries from Jon Petrie, Michael Bartlett, Ian McInroy and three by replacement Andrew Wilson helped Glasgow run out 34-14 victors. The Under-21s tries came from Chris Cusiter and captain Andrew Hogg.

Warriors and Scotland also had the welcome sight of Jon Petrie playing throughout the game after there were fears he would be ruled out of the Six Nations Championship with a hand injury picked up in the Inter Pro clash with Edinburgh. Thankfully the injury was not so serious as first feared and the operation was a success. Hopefully there will be a similiar outcome regarding the injury to Donnie Macfadyen. Glasgow team doctor Gerry Haggerty said: "The x-rays have shown no fracture, but he has suffered ligament damage to his left foot. It's not possible to predict at the moment exactly how long he will be out, but we should have a better idea within three to five days."

Glasgow coach Kiwi Searancke said: "Thankfully, Donnie's condition is not as serious as some people initially feared. But with ligament damage it is always hard to know exactly how long the healing process will take. It is a strain rather than a rip or rupture and there is still the best part of a fortnight for him to shake it off."
