Glasgow Warriors

Leicester Tigers

Rugby U


Hello friends, Rob Sutton here to take you through the opening game of this season's European Champions Cup, it's Glasgow Warriors v Leicester Tigers

We are playing of course on the new 4G surface in Glasgow so perfect conditions this evening with the rain having passed

Here is the Glasgow team for this evening.

And for the Leicester Tigers, who give a debut to Matt Toomua

This game tonight is coming from Pool 1, Racing 92 and Munster are the other two. The rest of the draw sees matchups such as Wasps v Toulouse, Toulon v Saracens and Leinster v Northampton

This should be a belter, Leicester's record on artificial pitches is not great and Glasgow have started well in the Pro12 this season so it's a tough one to call.

The final is in Edinburgh and we start in Glasgow, the Warriors have made a late change, Alex Dunbar is out and Mark Bennett is in at 13.

Here we go then, the teams are heading out onto the field, it's a sell out crowd so a great atmosphere

Mathieu Raynal from France is our referee, Glasgow in black, Leicester in their garish green and off we go.

2- Very nice kick from Finn Russell pins the Tigers right back in their own 22. 0-0
