Warriors In Command In Champions Cup

European Champions Cup
Glasgow Warriors (7) 28
Tries: Hogg, Penalty, Seymour, M Fagerson Cons: Russell 3, Penalty
Exeter (7) 21
Tries: Simmonds, Armand, Whitten Cons: Steenson 3

Scotland full-back Stuart Hogg made a try-scoring comeback as Glasgow ensured Exeter’s pursuit of a Champions Cup quarter-final place came up short.

Hogg crossed within two minutes, before Sam Simmonds’ try brought Chiefs level at half-time.

Warriors took control with a penalty try and length-of-the-field scores from Tommy Seymour and Matt Fagerson.

But Exeter refused to give up, tries from Don Armand and Ian Whitten bringing them to within a score.

But a losing bonus point was not enough to preserve the English champions’ hopes of securing one of the three best runners-up spots.

For Glasgow, it was a first win from an otherwise bleak European campaign, but they lost two Scotland players, George Turner and Alex Dunbar, to first-half knee and head injuries.

There was also a worrying sight for England coach Eddie Jones with centre Henry Slade forced off in the second half clutching his shoulder, with the Six Nations a fortnight away.
