Nicely done Glasgow. Two Irish provinces to the sword in two games is good going.

What's going on with Scotland wingers?? Two tries for Maitland and four for Seymour. We're a long way from Roland Reid.

Glasgow produced a composed comeback in the end and the performance in the second half was very good. It is worth remembering, however, how many starting Leinster players were missing from the team that ran out on the weekend.

I will echo the general thoughts of others that this years Pro 12 is looking very competitive. Blues and Ospreys both look to have improved and crucially, the Italian teams look much better.

                      12/13. Henshaw

Those would be the starters we were missing although if Healy continues on the form he's shown so far he'll get the no.1 shirt back imo.Boss has left so Mcgrath and Gibson-Park are fighting it out for the 9 shirt.

How many of those are likely to be back for this weekend's game against Edinburgh? I'm hoping none...

Just to provide some balance, Glasgow were also missing a number of starters:

Russell for Horne
Bennett for Johnson
Strauss for Harley
Ashe for Wilson

As well as those four played, their replacements are a step up, especially the backs!


Glasgow were sloppy in defence on Saturday, poor missed tackle for the first try and defensive brainfart for the second. They won't do that very often throughout the season. Saturday could easily have been another big victory for the Warriors if they'd been on top of their defence. Yet they still came out of it with 5 points to nil.

Next two games are absolutely key. Win at Cardiff and then beat Ulster at home, and there is then very little excuse for not winning the next 10 matches after that. We have none of the big Irish teams away until Ulster in round 15, and we should be backing ourselves to win all our home games, as well as away to the Italians, Edinburgh and Scarlets.

Somehow I just can't imagine a 14-game winning streak though...

Indeed. Although not quite far enough away for comfort from Dougie Fife, Lee Jones and a 97 year old Sean Lamont.

Hush now. I wonder if he's still the fastest player in the Glasgow squad?

Only if the thing being chased wears a skirt. Allegedly.

My favourite bit of the game was when Stuart Barnes tried to claim the credit for leinsters defence for Stuart Lancaster
