  1. The Warriors will need to play better than of late and rediscover their earlier form, but the Stormers look fallible and home advantage should tell. First things first, mak sikkar of the win by playing some form rugby. But I reckon that the semis will be a tough ask, having surrendered that clear path from Scotstoun all the way to the final. Loftus has been avoided but let’s not kid ourselves if we think Thomond Park is going to be any easier. It’s all down to the Weegies now, Edinburgh having failed so abjectly.

    • I wouldn’t get so ahead if yourself with the Edinburgh chat. Glasgow had a home semi in their grasp and blew it. Current form isn’t great and their history knockout games it sketchy at best.

  2. The wee man id best as a super-sub in fairness. Next season Hastings, Jordan and super-sub would leave RT hanging. If Scotland want home grown talent in yhe national side the SRU cannot keep importing. Who are the next gen Scots? Damn few homers that’s for sure. SRU and Townsend so short sighted. Ross T should / has to, kick on as rotation with Healy at Edinburgh. Why Savala was let go is a mystery – short sighted money saving decision.

  3. Actually a much better path than it could have been. Stormers and Munster are beatable and if Leinster can knock out the Bulls there’s a better chance in Dublin than SA. Imagine having to play a final at the bottom of the African continent and countless fans missing out because they simply can’t afford the travel to the SH. Glasgow need to up their game and judging by last night keeping Weir and getting rid of RT is a massive mistake.
