Glasgow Warriors 52 - 24 Cardiff

United Rugby Championship match played at Scotstoun on Friday September 23rd 2022 | No comments

George Horne was a standout performer for Glasgow
Glasgow turned things around after the disappointments of last weekend with an emphatic win over Cardiff at Scotstoun this evening.

In Franco Smith's first game in charge, Glasgow were beaten 33-11 by Benetton but the South African will have been pleased with how they hit back at Scotstoun tonight.

Despite a slow start, which saw Josh Adams cross the whitewash for the visitors, Warriors were 28-10 ahead at the interval thanks to Fraser Brown, Cole Forbes, Matt Fagerson and George Horne tries.

Kristian Dacey did briefly give Cardiff hope at the start of the second period but Zander Fagerson and Brown scored before Tom Gordon and Stafford McDowall rounded off an impressive win for the Warriors.

The win may have come at a cost, however, with Warriors losing Rory Darge early on with a nasty looking ankle injury.

Glasgow coach Peter Horne told BBC Radio Scotland: "We're delighted. I think what was pleasing is that we got back to playing rugby. Guys were out there expressing themselves.

"[Head coach] Franco (Smith) spoke about drawing a line in the sand after last week, and I think people will be leaving the stands pleased with what they saw.

[On brother George Horne]: "It's been a tough couple of years for George. Every time he seems to get any momentum he gets injured. He's got a massive chip on his shoulder, a point to prove. He's desperate to show what he's got and I think he was at his best tonight."
