Bath and Glasgow produce a classic at the Rec

Glasgow travelled to the Recreation Ground on Sunday to take on Bath in the Heineken Cup, with very few having anticipated the type of match that was to be on display.

Scoring five tries away from home, Glasgow came oh so close to winning as a late interception went wrong, but if it had come off, would have resulted in a famous victory.

Lying second in the Magners League, Glasgow were actually missing their first choice halfbacks, but the youth stepped up and fared excellently against the experience of Bath.

The 35-31 win to Bath in the end though sets up a mouth watering return meeting between the two sides in Glasgow, with Bath coach Steve Meehan well aware of the dangers that the Scottish side posses, with his teams defence having to be spot on.

“Defence is a reflection of motivation and attitude,” Meehan said. “We need to do some work on that. To get a result there, our attitude will have to be spot on. The game goes to the final bell, sometimes beyond that.”

"At 35-19 ahead, we had the game under control, but it goes until the final bell, which is a question for the players individually and collectively. Holes opened up in our defence because guys were lazy.

"If we are going to go through, then we need to win in Glasgow next weekend. We need to continue nipping at Toulouse's heels."

Glasgow coach Sean Lineen promised no let-up next Sunday. “Perhaps in the past Scottish teams have just been happy to compete, but these boys are a team of winners,” he said.

"We are very frustrated. The guys had a lot of belief coming down here. They are an exceptional bunch of players, and they want to win.

"It would have been fantastic to get a result here, but ultimately we need to tighten our defence and we've got to learn when to play - and when not to play.”

  • Great match. After years of under-achieving Scottish regional sides, it's great to see them competing with traditional powerhouses like Bath (even if Bath have slipped over the last few years).

    Heineken Cup and 6 Nations need a competetive Scotland and Scottish clubs.

    Next step: to convert five tries into wins. They must be gutted.

  • I didn't like this match...both sides did too many mistakes...it's not funny to see a match like this

  • Bloody hell Banahan, flattened!

  • Looks like it was a great match. Thanks for the extended highlights. But jesus is the sound annoying.

    Was that Rolland refereeing? He certainly took a far more liberal view of the breakdown than in the England/NZ game. The final Glasgow score comes after a blatant side entry to the ruck, and Bath players were constantly sealing off the ball - makes a mockery of the irb's notion that more vigorous refereeing of the technicalities of rucking will open the game up.

  • At last could this be a new dawn for Scotland?! Godman and Jackson - both exciting attacking fly-halfs (the end of Parks and Paterson disasters). Pace provided from the Evans brothers.

    Scotland back-row is looking very competitive now with Beattie, Brown, Barclay, Strokosch, White, Hogg, Taylor, Rennie all in the mix - a glut of talent. Very exciting.

    ps why Banahan is not ahead of Sackey is beyond me

  • The Sound is off by 9 seconds

    open the video in youtube and play it to 9 seconds and then pause it

    then press play on both as quickly as possible

  • I m just wondering, why banahan is not normally selected for england? is he not good enough or something?

    By Anonymous adrian, at December 10, 2008 10:54 pm  

  • Aye, it was a great game. I'll definitely be heading to Firhill on Sunday now. First real chance I've had to see a Glasgow game in ages (Friday-night games conflict with work).

    Both Evans brothers are looking great at the moment!

  • i would agree with the whole 9 second bit, really annoying bannahan one dimentional and has little allround skill that is why he is not in the England team. the Evans brothers did look good though

  • Jaysus, it looks like some of the people who commented here share a rare affliction where the eyes do not function without the ears.

    It's weird, since most people can remember what they saw less than 10 seconds ago and match it up with what they hear, but it seems like some people can't.

    You guys must have a God-awful time during storms when the lightning appears a few seconds before the thunder.

  • Rolland was awful. The number of times that Bath came in from the side at the break down was horrendous. Also, how they gave the first try given the Bath player wasn't bound to the scrum and was therefore in an offside position.

  • Doesn't surprise me to learn Rolland was awful, he single handedly stopped England from taking NZ to the cleaners

  • keep laughing Rolland didn't want England to win so kept them to 13 for most of the match. NZ got out of jail

    By Anonymous Anonymous, at December 12, 2008 11:38 am  

  • @anonymous

    why didn't Rolland want England to win, are you saying he was bribed?

    poor rugby kept England to 13 for a small part (not "most") of the match.

    NZ were never in jail, they were odds-on to win because they are currently a much better side and they proved that by playing better rugby and winning the game.

    the truth can be simple
