    Bath v Glasgow
    </div>

    So both sides are riding high in their respective leagues so we could be in for quite a decent match on Sunday.

    Bath will have been slightly dissappointed not to have done better against the Dragons after their losing bp in the opening match in Toulouse but it now looks like Toulouse are in control of this group and failure to get full points this weekend especially if Toulouse do so could prove costly in the final shake up.

    Glasgow will be hoping to take their domestic form with them to the Rec as they flattered to deceive so far despite a spirited effort at home to Toulouse, they ultimately weren't good enough, they can't afford a similar performance this weekend. It'll be interesting to see whether Glasgow have thrown the towel in completely as Lineen hinted they might following the Toulouse game or whether they'll give this match a proper go.

    Not the start that everyone was expecting. Not the best defence from Bath to be fair.

    This is reminiscent of the Stade game yesterday, with Bath taking Paris' role.
    Seriously, they're gifting Glasgow opportunities... 0 -7 currently.

    Well Bath certainly did their best to screw up that scoring opportunity, nicely done on their part, although great last ditch tackle from Stortoni

    Another chance missed.
    Penalty to Bath though.
    James to score another three... Nope, they're going for a scrum.
    Lawl. Knock-on with the try begging. Penalty to Glasgow in their own 22.

    Well Glasgow now doing their best to mess up their chances, should have been in there for a second try but he went the wrong direction with the pass.

    That's superb covering by Max Evans. Banahan was in there.... Again. <_<
    What a game this is!
    Hm, Beattie may have just scored from the resulting five-metre scrum.
    He has! 8 - 7
    Glasgow on the attack. EVANS SCORES! 8 - 12 to Glasgow.
    Conversion makes it 8 - 14. Interesting match this certainly is.
    A Glasgow win puts Toulouse in control of the pool.

    That looks like it could be given.

    and indeed it was, I think that's the right call, Fa'atau lost control of it over the line so good call imo.

    That's a classy try, good hands all round and a decent line from Evans to finish it off.

    14-8

    Penalty for Bath. A good time for a Bath score to be honest. They're on the back foot at the moment; Glasgow are really tearing them apart.
    Good kick. 11 - 14. Now.

    Timely score indeed, Bath really need to pull their finger out in the second half or their European campaign will be well and truly over.

    Wow - grrreat fun to watch.

    Glasgow were denied five points by the posts - could have won.

    Abendonon is lethal in attack.
     
  18. Best pool game of the year. Who loses a game scoring 5 tries :lol: Bath were superb after half time but they let their foot off the gas a bit and Glasgow deservedly took it to the wire. If only it was Evans who intercepted at the end the Warriors would have won. Wonderful match, Abendanons a wonderful attacker.
