The new captain scores the 4th try. They could not resist the onslaught!

Well we fell over the line in the end but a 5 pointer is a 5 pointer. There were some good signs there though, it could be starting to click.

Well done Blues for a very committed showing, well worth your bonus point and your season will improve if you keep playing with that spirit

Whew, that was close. Top marks to the Blues for never giving up. Top marks to the Warriors for another five pointer.
Must say, Big Thomas the Tacky looks suspect in defence at times; though not quite Visserish.
Blair looks set to start in Paris.
The pack all looked good.
Horne drifted in and out: more out than in today. Will Dunbar be fit?
Still, looking good for next week.

Sounds like a great game - sorry I missed it.
Sounds like Cardiff were as terrier-like and hard nosed as usual.

Light at the end of the tunnel i'd say. Happy with Wilson and I like the cut of his gib. Hope Uncle Pete helps him build a decent squad for next season.

It was solid, it was an area of the game where you would say there was parity. You would not say the Glasgow scrum was a weapon, but it takes a pretty good one to get on top of them. They are still short of a really top quality TH, it is probably our weakest position on the pitch these days, it is realistically still going to take Fargerson a couple more years to fulfil his potential.

I'm really enjoying Greg Petersen as well - watching the big guy smash through the line at pace before offloading in the tackle to a rampaging Sandy Fagerson is a beautiful sight.

The difference the two of them made in driving Glasgow up the field in the final quarter was huge.

Is Nina injured?

Apparently he doesn't care for shows and he doesn't care for clothes.

Agree with that, Peterson looks a very decent player, who will bring plenty to the squad. Looks born to play the Glasgow way.

They gave him the weekend off, it was his birthday!

The pecking order for the Glasgow OS role is going to be interesting and it won't be easy to keep them all happy.

I probably have Nina as top dog at the moment, with Fusaro as back up. Blake I suspect will be the back up option to get his gametime and experience (which is still very limited at this level) up a lot more. He is probably the one for the future though even if he does play a bit of sevens this year. Bordill unfortunately is going to struggle to get any games at all and will probably need to move on to give himself any hope for the future as a pro. I think Fusaro may need a move at some stage as well, when is his contract up?

Agree with Nina being first choice - he gives us a bit of bosh in the back row.

Cardiff gave a good account of themselves and aren't a million miles away from being a very good team.

That was a game that the Glasgow of a few years ago would have lost - that being said, still giving away too many penalties that we really need to fix or the big teams will cut us to pieces.

Should we be worried that Dunbar hasn't been seen since his return game back?

I would be more worried if it was the same injury. It is amazing how often players come back from a long term injury then get another one almost straight away, which probably shows just how physically tough pro rugby is.

I am not so worried about this one, there is no need to rush him back, as plenty WC players have now re-integrated anyway. The knee could have been a career ender, I don't think this one is. Maybe they need to leave him out of this round of Europe and then bring him back a bit more gently afterwards with a couple of runs of the bench. They did chuck him straight into a start this time, probably as we were a little bit in need of a good win and were reduced to playing back rows in the centre.

Grant Gilchrist said the same thing - you're so long out of the game that it us easy to have a random muscle tweak or something you wouldn't normally get.

Thanks BigGee - must admit to being worried about big French and English scrums come Europe and Ulster and Leinster for that matter. Fagerson absolutely the future but a big ask just now.

Glasgow's shortcomings in Europe last year were in the set piece and if anything the scrum isn't as strong this year.

I hope it won't be the case again this year!

I am not sure that there are to many in the Pro 12 that will really worry us, Edinburgh are probably the best around at the moment if they get their best players out. The French will be a lot harder though, I guess we will see next Saturday!

I do like Glasgow's ability to score tries, much Edinburgh can learn from that. Glasgow pack still a bunch of jessies mind you.

Didn't have the chance to see the game but although we have lost our last 6 games it's not all doom and gloom (unlike the stories the western mail have been running) as I have seen an improvement from last season.

Beginning of the season was always going to be difficult, zebra at home was too easy and then a break before all 4 irish teams away. Not to mention the away trip to zebre where last years crapfest if a blues team turned up, glad Wilson gave them the b0llocking they deserved. It seems to have worked and cardiff put up a much better showing against the champions.

I'm hoping the early signs of improvement continue and when we come to play the 4 irish teams in the new year at home we can turn them over. But we need to get some wins on the board soon, just to help morale in the squad

All I'll say is I'm happy to have played the Blues in Cardiff now, rather than when they've had a chance to gel. I saw lots of things for Blues fans to be optimistic with, and I know Cardiff aren't the first team to have trouble dealing with Nakarawa.

He just seems to defy the laws of physics.

I'm hoping we can do some shrewd recruitment and really get an ethos of being a difficult team to face and have a winning mentality.

Unfortunately we've been needing this for the last 3 seasons now.
