Speaking after the match Glasgow Head Coach Franco Smith said: "We're really pleased with this result. I know how tough Rodney Parade can be : which is why we approached this as a final.
"It was a difficult game with the expectation, but the squad stepped up, we scored some good tries and the Scotland boys all came through fine.
"We're on a good run, but I don't like to look back otherwise you can stumble over the next block in front of you."
