Glasgow overpowered Scotland U21s at Murrayfield in horrendous conditions
A Glasgow XV ran in seven tries as they overpowered Scotland U21s 43-0 at Murrayfield tonight.

Despite constant rain and strong winds Glasgow's mixture of pros and club players put together some attractive rugby and scored some great tries.

Rory Couper gave Glasgow the lead after some good work by Sam Pinder and the Boroughmuir wing went over for another try with a strong run from halfway. Watsonian's Colin Gregor converted the second, and mastered the swirling wind to kick three more after the break.

Glasgow ran away with the game after half-time with tries from Boroughmuir's Olly Brown, Kenny Sinclair, Glenn Metcalfe, Forrester's Jamie Fowlie and Colin Gregor.

Joe Naufahu played for the opening 40 minutes in his first appearance since September and Glenn Metcalfe looked sharp after a lengthy absence.

Glasgow XV – Glenn Metcalfe (captain). David Millard, David Arneil (Heriot's), Joe Naufahu, Rory Couper (Boroughmuir), Colin Gregor (Watsonians), Sam Pinder, Mark Thomson (Kirkcaldy), Simon Gunn, Matt Proudfoot, Fergus Pringle (Hawick), John Stewart (Stirling County), Andrew Wilson, Paul Dearlove, Olly Brown (Boroughmuir)

Replacements – Graham Kiddie (Boroughmuir), Alan Bulloch, Kenny Sinclair, Jamie Syme (Heriot’s), Roland Reid, Ian Dryburgh (Watsonians), Chris Sinclair (Heriot's), Danny Wright (Watsonians), Jamie Fowlie (Forrester).
