Glasgow Warriors

Rugby U


A very good afternoon all, Rob Sutton here for what I think is the tie of the round in the Champions Cup quarter finals, Saracens v Glasgow, the defending champions against the most improved team in the tournament.

Saracens are trying to win back-to-back Champions Cups and came out of their group with flying colours. Glasgow produced four sparkling performances home and away against Racing and Leicester to finish second behind Munster in Pool 1.

Let's take a check on the team news, Saracens: Goode, Ashton, Bosch, Barritt (C), Maitland, Farrell, Wigglesworth, M Vunipola, George, Figallo, Itoje, Hamilton, Rhodes, Wray, B Vunipola Replacements: Brits, Lamositele, Koch, Brown, Conlon, Spencer, Lozoswki, Taylor.

Glasgow: Hogg, Seymour, Dunbar, Horne, Russell, Pyrgos, Reid, Brown, Fagerson, Alainu'uese, Gray (C), Harley, Wilson, Ashe Replacements: Flynn, Allen, Puafisi, Petersen, Fusaro, Price, Grigg, Hughes

The winners of this game will face Munster in the semi finals, if Saracens win the game will be staged in Dublin, if Glasgow win the game will be played at Murrayfield.

Saracens are strong favourites especially at Allianz Park where they haven't been beaten since March last year but if any team can stop them then Glasgow must have a chance, they also play on a 4G pitch at home.

Stunning day for rugby in North London, terrific atmosphere with many of thousands of Glasgow fans having made the journey down, teams are coming out.

Jerome Garces from France our referee, excellent man for the job, off we go.

1- First penalty to Glasgow and Pyrgos goes quickly, Glasgow over halfway but turned over.

2- Good line from Jackson Wray, Saracens up to the Glasgow 22.
