Even though everyone says that the Weegies are favourites for this one, I would think that we'll overcome our poor run of form to get a win. The win is the most important thing. I might shoot through to the land of poverty after work to see this one.

I wouldn't have thought that Glasgow would be favourites, I know they're playing at gome and everything but the league table alone is enough to convince me that it should be an away win despite recent European form.

Well yeah, I mean I'm not reading into the stats. We've played better opposition with a weaker side in two of our 4 defeats, the first defeat to Glouscter was honourable (the 2nd one we were pants though).

but Glasgow are hardly up to Gloucester's standard now, and it's not been a bad start 10-3 up already despite Setanta teletext saying the game had been called off. :wacko:

Shame for the Gunners that they couldn't continue their good start but Glasgow played some decent rugby, will be dissappointed that they didn't get the bonus point as it was there for the taking, shouldn't make much of a difference though as they're that far ahead of the Borders in the race for the HEC spot.

Still ahead of Glasgow...tis a poor run of form we're on but at least we've got the break to regroup.
