Warriors sticking to the plan

Scott Cummings says Warriors are sticking to what they normally do
Glasgow Warriors meet Toulon in the Challenge Cup final on Friday with both clubs looking to add a fresh chapter for their storied history.

The French side have yet to win the second-tier competition, despite reaching the final four times and taking the Champions Cup on three occasions in the last decade.

The Warriors, in their first continental final, they are chasing both a first trophy since winning the PRO12 league in 2015 and Scotland's first European success.

Incoming Head Coach Franco Smith has revitalised Glasgow fortunes and May 6's United Rugby Championship play-off loss to Munster was only their second defeat since November in any competition.

"We're sticking to what we do normally, but obviously there is that added wee bit of excitement going about," Glasgow lock Scott Cummings told the media on Monday.

"We've talked about the effort we've put in throughout the year and having something to show for that.

"Franco has always said 'You've not won anything yet'.

"We want to come home with a bit of silverware, that's the most important part," he added.

Scotland's Cummings is set to come up against former Glasgow colleague and fellow lock Brian Alainu'uese.

The 132kg Samoa forward spent two seasons at Scotstoun before heading to the Cote d'Azur in 2018.

"Big Briz was really good quality here as well," Cummings said.

"He had a couple of knee issues when he was here and that maybe meant he didn't get some of the game time he was hoping for, but he's a top-quality player.

"I haven't messaged him, but I'm sure I'll share a beer with him after the game," he added.
