G.r.A.N Rugby Parma 17 - 47 Glasgow Warriors

European Challenge Cup match played at Sergio Lanfranchi on Saturday January 13th 2007 | 2 comments

Sam's first half double set up the Warriors for a bonus point win
A bonus point win for Glasgow in Parma means that next weekend's game versus Saracens could see the Warriors make it through to the quarter finals of the Challenge Cup.

Without a published match report available, we have patched together the text updates received from the supporters out in Parma.

After 20 mins, Glasgow were 3-13 up, with Sam Pinder scoring in the third minute, and Dan slotting 4 penalties.

Glasgow went in at half time, 21-3 up, after a second score by Sam.

In the 41st minute, a break by Stevie Swindall leads to a Rory Lamont try, converted by Dan. At 47 minutes, Sam picks up loose ball and feeds to Rory again, who goes through hole in defence and scores under the posts for Dan to convert. Bonus point secured and the score stands at 3-35.

Thom scores in 53rd minute as a result of a Sam Pinder break, following a late tackle on T-Bone.

Parma score from a pick-up at scrum and convert it. Bevvy and Budgie replace Sam and Thom. Fog coming down.

A wayward pass from Budgie to opposition leads to their second try. Glasgow appear to be getting slack.

Sean Marsden scores in the 77th minute from a Bevvy chip ahead, after shrugging off his opponent.

Final score from our man in Parma - 17-47!

A good peformance, on the road, without really excelling. Next week will require a step up. Still great to see the guys putting themselves in a position to win the group next Friday. A splendid weekend.
