Glasgow Warriors handed Paul Gustard’s Harlequins a heavy defeat in a pre-season friendly in Perth today.


The performance of the son of Scotland great Gavin Hastings caught the eye as the Warriors ran out 57 – 17 winners.

The Warriors proved just too hot to handle for the Londoners, with a deluge of second-half tries securing the win in front of 5,918 fans at the pre-season venue.

In fact between the sides there were 11 tries scored including 5 pointers for Niko Matawalu and new signing Nick Frisby.

Adam Hastings, son of Gavin, impressed in a 15 minute second-half cameo, setting up Matawalu for a try and having a ‘huge impact’ on the game according to Harlequins match report.

Following the game Harlequins Paul Gustard reaction was circumspect. “That wasn’t a good enough performance, that’s not acceptable and we need to show more fight and urgency.”


“That is a very disappointing result for us. That wasn’t a good performance. We are Harlequins and that is not good enough. We made too many errors and those two tries just before half-time and just after half-time killed us.

“The changing room is very disappointed and there are a lot of lessons to learn. We need to show more fight, we need to show more urgency and I’m sure we’ll get a good response next week.”
