Zebre 17 - 45 Glasgow Warriors
United Rugby Championship match played at Stadio Sergio Lanfranchi on Saturday December 3rd 2022 | No comments
Stafford McDowall went over for Glasgow's third try Glasgow Warriors went over for six tries in a 45-17 win over Zebre in Parma this afternoon.
In contrast to their fine home form, it was the Warriors first away win for 11 months in the URC.
Glasgow tries came from Sintu Manjezi, Sebastian Cancelliere, Stafford McDowall, Jonny Matthews (2) and Domingo Miotti. George Horne kicked 15 point sin a flawless display from the tee.
A Pierre Bruno try gave Zebre an early lead with Jacques Du Toit grabbing a late double for the hosts.
Matt Fagerson was yellow-carded as Glasgow came under early pressure on their own line, before brother Zander was forced off through injury soon after.
Zebre pressure eventually told when Geronimo Prisciantelli's cross-field kick found Bruno wide on the right to touch down.
Prisciantelli added the extras, but Glasgow were level soon after.
Manjezi gathered his own charge down to go over, with Horne adding the conversion.
Prisciantelli missed an opportunity to nudge Zebre back in front from the tee on the half-hour mark, and it was Glasgow who had the advantage at the interval thanks to Horne's penalty.
The visitors took control of the match after the break with Cancelliere going over in the left corner before McDowall picked up a loose ball to add a third try.
Horne converted both and was on target again when Johnny Matthews went over with 12 minutes left to play to secure the bonus point.
Du Toit scored his two tries either side of Miotti's first in Glasgow colours, but they mattered little in the end as Matthews doubled his own tally and Horne maintained his perfect record from the tee to give the scoreline a convincing gloss.
