Glasgow Warriors 21 - 7 Newcastle Falcons

Development match played at Burnbrae on Friday August 18th 2006 | 4 comments

Ruaridh Jackson capped a fine display with a well-taken try
Glasgow's development squad got the Burnbrae double header off to a great start with a well-deserved 21-7 victory over Newcastle's second string team.

The Warriors dominated in the first half, spending most of it camped in Newcastle territory. In an impressive early spell Glasgow opened their account with a 7th minute try when Colin Shaw out-paced Scotland 7s wing Cameron Johnston to touch-down Sean Marsden's chip-kick. Stand-off Ruaridh Jackson converted.

It was level pegging at the interval as in a rare foray upfield Falcons flanker Brent Wilson rounded off a driving maul with a try which Toby Flood converted.

In the second-half, Ruaridh Jackson, who showed some great touches throughout, kicked beyond a flat Falcons defence to claim Glasgow's second try, adding the extra points for good measure.

And Warriors secured the win with a drive over try from prop Moray Low, after James Eddie and Andy Dunlop had been involved in the build-up with a sustained forward rumble. Mike Adamson converted and not even the departure of skipper Graeme Beveridge with a bump to his thigh could dent Warriors' satisfaction at the successful outcome to part one of proceedings.

Did anyone else see the tackle put in by Andy Rennick in second half of the development game? Absolutely fantastic - already a contender for tackle of the season! The guy couldn't believe the knock he had taken!

When he tackled their No.8 with the headguard? It was a screaming hum-dinger! The guy kinda wandered in a semi-circle for a second or two then fell over. He looked like Bambi on ice. Great tackle.
