Rugby Union Pro14/1872 Cup [ Game 2 ]
Glasgow Warriors (3) 17
Try: L Jones Pens: Russell 4
Glasgow Warriors battled to victory over rivals Edinburgh in an interrupted 1872 Cup derby at Scotstoun.
In the 39th minute, with Glasgow 3-0 ahead, the stadium was evacuated due to a fire alarm in the North Stand.
Play resumed after a lengthy delay with the start of the second half – the remaining one minute, 59 seconds of the first was written off.
Lee Jones’ late try and Finn Russell’s four penalties propelled Glasgow to their 11th Pro14 win of the season.
Following Edinburgh’s victory last weekend, Warriors’ home triumph levels the 1872 Cup series, which is played over three fixtures this term, with the decisive final meeting taking place in late April.
