Warriors have room for improvement

George Turner says Warriors have room for improvement
As the URC heads into the sixth weekend of the new campaign there's a general satisfaction around Scotstoun with the Warriors results so far but an acknowledgement that there is room for improvement.

Ulster will provide a big challenge to Franco Smith's men in tomorrow's Scotstoun meeting so the onus will be on securing the win, but bonus points could be vital come the end of the season.

"That's what Franco's been saying - a win's a win but we need those bonus points and we need to stop other teams getting bonus points," said George Turner in The Scotsman. "It's tight at the top at the moment and we've got another massive game against Ulster. If we can get five points and deny them getting a point it'll be a big event in the league.

"It's been a really good start. We're joint top at the moment, although Franco's not happy that we dropped a few points at Connacht away. And I think that's the message so far: we're doing really well but there's a lot to improve, a lot to shore up. We can still have better performances."

Turner expects Ulster to test Glasgow's impressive home record. "Ulster are nice and physical but can play when they need to. It'll be a good test but we back ourselves at home," said Turner.

South African World Cup winner Steven Kitshoff is set to make his Ulster debut.

"Kitshoff came last year with the Stormers and we beat them here," added Turner. " He'll be wanting to right that wrong. Zander [Fagerson] will want to get back into him again, if he's playing. It'll be a good challenge for him."
