Warriors know what to expect

Cole Forbes expects a tough challenge at Sandy Park
Glasgow Warriors are back in European action on Saturday when they travel to Sandy Park to take on Exeter

Warriors had the edge on the 2020 champions with a 22-7 win at Scotstoun in December but Danny Wilson's men are under no illusions of the size of the challenge they will face in the return fixture.

Speaking in The Scotsman, Glasgow wing Cole Forbes said: "I'd say that was the best 80-minute performance this season. The boys knew what was coming, put the gameplan out there and executed it perfectly for the full game."

Repeating the feat at the home of Exeter will require something special and Forbes is braced for what lies ahead.

"It will be similar to last time. But they'll have a bit more of an edge after losing the last one," said the winger.

"They'll want to come back harder and show the team they really are. We know what's coming. We just have to play tactically and right into the pitch and take our opportunities like we did the last time."

It's coming up for a year since Forbes pitched up in Glasgow, initially on trial, and the former New Zealand U20 international is now a key member of the squad.

"It's definitely gone a lot better than I had hoped when I first got here," said Forbes, who is Scottish-qualified and has been involved in a couple of Scotland camps. "When I arrived I was only here on trial so I thought it would only be for three months and would struggle to get gametime. But I'm lucky that Danny has given me an opportunity and I've loved every minute of it."
