Well both sides got off to a winning start, though they were very different games. Glasgow grinding out a tough old win in biblical weather conditions in Galway, while Ospreys beat possibly the weakest team in the league at home without gaining an extra point. Neither game probably giving much away in terms of clues about how their respective seasons will pan out. Both team will be looking for improved performances this weekend. Hopefully the weather will oblige.

Soft yellow for Davies. Him and Tips been involved a lot with Glasgow forwards especially Z Fagerson. O's can feel hard done by. They have played better than the scoreline.

They did manage to get nothing from 23 phases of attack in the 22 earlier so not overly inspired on the attacking side. Defensively unfortunate. At least 1 try too many for Glasgow.

Dunbar seems to have lost a bit of bulk and gained some speed which is no bad thing - he looks a similar build to Duncan Taylor now.

A pretty good first home game for Glasgow

31-10 and a try bonus point to start the Dave Rennie home era.

Am happy enough with that, only slight downer was Oli Keeble hobbling off, having looked pretty handy this week after he came on.

Well really the same as last week then, pretty even first half, but blown away second half, why all the changes just after h/t? Hope Olly recovers, apparently knocked flat out.

There has been a topic started on our Forum in the last week, our next 8 games, most are saying we might win 2 of them, but as the 2 wins are against Treviso away and Dragons, it probably will be 8 straight losses with this same regime in situ.

Just interviewed Dave Rennie, he sounds a hard man to please as well. Did not sound ecstatic about a bonus point win against one of the top teams in the league.

You get the feeling he wants there to be a lot more to come

Gibbins is a handy player. Really good signing. Dunbar is in the form of his life as well. Warriors looking handy this season, making the Ospreys looking very average at times.

How the hell did Ross Ford keep George Turner out of the Edinburgh team. Thats 2 weeks in a row he has been really excellent.

Yes, yes and yes. Though, despite blitzing them in the first 10 mins we went into our shell and watched as they threw it side to side without really going anywhere. Try scored by O's Dan Evans was so soft after such stalwart defence. Card to Davies in last 10 gifting us the TBP was really harsh imho. Number of high tackles by O's was worrying esp the guy stretchered off - think that saved him from a card. As BG says above - happy with points, worried about Kebble, who in the short time he was on destroyed 2 of their scrums. Marius Mitrea remains a very poor referee !

Yes, yes and yes.   Though, despite blitzing them in the first 10 mins we went into our shell and watched as they threw it side to side without really going anywhere.   Try scored by O's Dan Evans was so soft after such stalwart defence.   Card to Davies in last 10 gifting us the TBP was really harsh imho.    Number of high tackles by O's was worrying esp the guy stretchered off - think that saved him from a card.   As BG says above - happy with points, worried about Kebble, who in the short time he was on destroyed 2 of their scrums.    Marius Mitrea remains a very poor referee !

Schiz, I wouldn't take what Kebble did in that game as anything, he was propping up against probably the worst tighthead to play any time in the Pro 14 this season, (there has only been 2 series of matches, and I'm quite confident that what I put above will still be the same at seasons end), as I put earlier in this thread I couldn't see any of this game and have only the people on here and the Ospreys Forum to guide me, a couple on our Forum reckoned Cracknell was our best player, and if it hadn't have been for the 17 points that were gifted to you, by especially our 10, it would have been a lot closer, although none of our posters reckoned we would have got anything out of this game anyway.

As for Mitrea, he never has been top notch and would have expected criticism from one set of supporters, if not both.

I just hope our Coaching staff will somehow soon become to realise that Rhodri Jones will never become a decent tighthead, and start to play him in his natural position of loose head, even Paul James could do a better job anchoring our scrum, next weekend would be a good time to put this experiment to bed.

ford was playing the best I have seen him last season. Really on top of his game and looked a different player to the tortured soul of a few years ago

FES, I think putting together two good games is a bit early to be talking about form. We're not the MFL, you know.

As we say in Scotstoun, Form is temporary: Class is permanent.

Will take any win over the Ospreys - the scored almost certainly flattered us given that we lost out quite seriously on possession over the match. However, we are nowhere near the finished product (to say nothing of having a much less than full strength squad available) and that is an exciting prospect.

Is this the season that Adam Ashe decides that he is not a Johnnie Beattie one season wonder?

Glasgows defence was decent but the attack looked very rusty

Any update on Kebble's injury, looked bad. Bloody unlucky on his home debut

Wayne, thought your best player on Saturday was Dan Evans. Looked good and gave a sound FB performance. My criticism towards Mitrea was for his handling of the game - i.e. unsure and hesitant, which I am sure confused both sides. Any way good luck for the rest of the season esp. this week v Munster furious and will see you down in Swansea later this year (Nov ?)

I'd probably settle for that. Always hard to see exactly where they are limping from as they hobble off, but I was worried it was a knee, which may have been a whole lot longer.

Yep. I thought it was his knee / ACL too. He and Fagerson looked solid together, so I hope he's back soon
