Warriors Win As Popham Sent To Bin

Sean Lineen experienced his first win in charge of Glasgow Warriors this evening as they beat Llanelli Scarlets 17-10 at Firhill._Llanellia?'s hero from their match on Tuesday against Munster, Alix Popham, turned villain as two yellow cards saw him automatically gain a red and he spent the latter part of the game on the sidelines.A feisty Glasgow attack saw the Warriors look more lively than last weekenda?'s outing against Leinster but their own mistakes still caused them problems._Lineen said: a??I was really disappointed with the way we handled the ball._Ita?'s very frustrating that all the effort from training can then be thrown away on the pitch, but in saying that, it was a great try!a??The try he was referring to came from club captain Jon Petrie who was on the end of the eveninga?'s best move to cross in the corner._Colin Gregor started the move which continued with Spencer Davey and an impressive line break and gallop from sub Craig Hamilton. Colin Gregor claimed quick ruck ball and passed onto Man of the Match Dan Parks who swung the ball out to Petrie.Glasgowa?'s remaining points were all kicked by Parks while The Scarletsa?" were scored through a try by Aled Gravelle and a conversion and penalty from stand off Craig Evans. Some staunch defending from the Warriors, who kept their strong defensive line and even when The Scarlets were battering their try line, maintained their composure, most impressively when Scott Lawson and Kevin Tkachuk held up their opponent over the line, denying them another try.Both Hefin Oa?"Hare and John Beattie had big games in both attack and defence and the Glasgow crowd showed their vocal appreciation for their sidea?'s vigour in this last home game of the season._Prop Ben Prescott, starting in only his second game of the season following long term injury, looked solid and gained some valuable ground going forward but was unlucky to have to leave the field with a leg injury.With news of the Borders final score of 63-17 in Ulster, ita?'s all to play for in the race for a Heineken Cup place as the teams head into the final round of the Celtic League.Scorers: Glasgow: Tries: Jon Petrie; Pens: Dan Parks (4).
