Perfectly set up for us to get two late tries for another 1 point win now ...

Thought we were the better side but lacked composure at key moments and got reffed out of it at points.

Adamson really was brutal. Only reffed one side today.

Not disappointed we lost, a little disappointed with the final score very disappointed we didn't score.

Tried to play a little too much today and needed a couple more balls to go to hand

Non the less I'm confident big Dick will know how to deal with this

Very disappointing scoreline, I don't think it reflects the game at all.

On another day those passes would have stuck, and we missed our props.

Anyway, before last week's game I was looking for effort, staying in the game to the last, and we mostly got that over the two games, Glasgow played a professional last quarter to take the game out of reach and make us play 7s from our own line with 79 mins on the clock.

VDM looks a real find.

I've seen the Hoyland score a few times now and think it should have stood. The ball goes backwards initially and.in any case, came off Jackson's hand. Not sure why he didn't go to the TMO other than being a former Glasgow player and reluctant to use.

The question is would you have been happy with 4 points from these 2 games before they were played and its a yes from me

Whilst I agree that 4 points and 1-1 over the two games, I think we can/should be more ambitious. They are not that much better than us nowadays, imo.

Well okay, but put Nel, Bergs, Dicko/Sutherland/Dell/Marfo on the park and a lot would have changed, they got a fair bit of momentum from the scrum and maul.

I thought the main difference today was Russell.

That's not applicable to the question as to whether or not Glasgow are much better than us right now, which was my original point. Full squad v full squad they have a couple of game breakers in the backs that we don't have, but we have advantages in a few positions.

Once you get into injuries it's a lottery, but if you want to look at cold hard facts, we won four points last week, they won one, they won four points this week. They are one league point better than us over the two games.

Yes it is you brought up injuries. We’re not on the same wavelength on this one. Let’s not fall out.
