Tom Jordan's two penalties helped Warriors to the win Glasgow Warriors edged out Edinburgh 16-10 in this evening's URC meeting at Scotstoun.
Warriors went into the break with a 10-point lead after a try from Jack Dempsey with George Horne adding the conversion and a penalty.

Warriors extended their lead with two penalties by stand-off Tom Jordan but Jaco van der Walt's late penalty gave Edinburgh a losing bonus point.
Glasgow Warriors assistant coach Peter Horne, said: "We're chuffed. It was pretty scruffy, but derbies are never as glamorous as you hope they are going to be.
"It was a brilliant finish [from Jack Dempsey], and it galvanised us a little bit.
"We've brought a bit more resilience. That's shone through in the last few weeks. It's really satisfying. It comes down to desire, being technically sound and looking after the ball.
"I'm delighted for [brother George Horne]. He's been injured, so it's great to see him going well."
