A player that made the most of what he had. I remember him joining as a project that couldn't crack the Ulster first 15 but had some tools. By the end his rugby nous was compensating for the loss of that top end speed and the general increase in size of winger that meant that his power was no longer a standout attribute. The sort of player you'd want in your squad no matter who you are. Sad that his last year sort of fizzled out due to health concerns.

Yeah. A shame he didn't get to go out on his terms. He was class.

It has been with an air of resignation regarding Glasgow’s Rainbow Cup prospects that I have been reading how the rugby cognoscenti think Munster are on fire. However, it appears I have got the wrong end of the stick.

Someone had the bright idea of using petrol to make the fire catch light, didn't they?

bit worse than carpet burns, so shouldn't be in this thread :?

Unlike the fire, someone there wasn't too bright

The way I read the initial story was that they were all burnt but nothing serious. Have since read that 2 of them are a bit more serious - should say that I hope they’re ok.

Also, surprised Lee Jones is leaving Glasgow - thought he might stay another year or so until the end of the next RWC season. Good luck to him.

Now confirmed as one of them being an idiot with a petrol can: https://www.bbc.co.uk/sport/rugby-union/57387445

Very lucky it wasn't worse, all things considered.

New attack coach from Connacht. Seems to be highly regarded.

This article is very encouraging - https://www.the42.ie/nigel-carolan-conn ... 1-May2021/

McCallum picks up a "short term" contract with Glasgow. Maybe a bit of cover if Faegerson gets some post tour time off, though obviously going to be behind Berghan again. It will be interesting to see if he can get some game time in a new environment.

Bruce Flockhart has retired - https://www.glasgowwarriors.org/news/fl ... from-rugby.

Sad for him and he had real potential. Good to see how much support he has had from the club though.

Kenny Murray bigging up Ally Miller but also (similarly to Blair) emphasising the importance of the Super6 - as well as how it can improve.

Team for the Ulster game is out. Looks quite decent, especially if you add the faegersons, price and miller in, when available. No idea about that front row though.

Thoughts on Weir starting ahead of Thompson? What's happening with McDowall? He's not on the injury report.

I was hopeful Thompson would start the season as number one but want Wilson to pick on merit both in games and training so no complaints if he thinks Weir is the better option. Not a huge amount of room for Miotti when he comes in.

Think McDowall started 15 last week but hope he doesn't drift. It wasn't that long ago he was one of Scotland's brightest prospects.

On paper the sub front row looks better than the starting one but we will see.

A win against Ulster first up would be huge.
