Young Warriors catch the eye

Adam Hastings impressed at Bridgehaugh
A number of young Warriors caught the eye in Saturday's last-gasp defeat to an experienced Northampton side.

Speaking after the game, Dave Rennie said: "I thought Adam Hastings did a really good job at ten running the ship. We will go through the footage and we will see a lot of things that we can do a lot better but I was happy with the attitude."

Asked which of the other young players caught his eye the new head coach brushed off the question. "I probably shouldn't have mentioned Adam. I don't 
really like singling people out, you know.

"Right across the board the attitude was good. Everything else we can work on."

Adam joined up with Glasgow from Bath and his display at Bridgehaugh - along with Patrick Kelly, George Horne and Stafford McDowall among others - showed lots of promise for the future.

Speaking in the Scotsman, Adam said: "It's always difficult in pre-season games because you're still a bit rusty even though you've been doing a lot of training.

"It's a mixed bag. I think we could have put them away a bit earlier but you let a team like Northampton back into the game and they are always going to push you.

"I felt a bit more confident coming in here. It was nice to get a full 80 minutes so I could play my way into the game rather than just coming off the bench. They said, 'it's a trial' before the game, 'you are all playing for places'.

"He [Rennie] said as soon as he came in at the start of the week that he is going to pick boys on how they are playing and not reputation so, as a youngster, that is good to hear.

"Obviously, going into that game you're thinking, if I do something half decent I might get a shot in the future."
