Glasgow Warriors kept their slim chance of securing a Pro12 play-off spot alive with a 45-10 bonus-point thumping of Zebre at Scotstoun Stadium.
However, Glasgow will need to be at their best at leaders Leinster in two weeks if they are to go into the final round of the regular season with a semi-final spot realistically in reach.
The Italian side lost scrum-half Carlo Engelbrecht and captain Valerio Bernabo to injuries before the first points were registered, and Sam Johnson and Matt Smith extended the hosts’ advantage after the restart.
Kayle van Zyl got Zebre on the board before Smith completed his double, with Kurt Baker’s score two minutes from time nothing more than a consolation for the visitors.
