Glasgow win again, Leinster thrash the Dragons
Ali Price scored two tries and Adam Hastings contributed 22 points as Glasgow Warriors beat the Cheetahs 52-24 to secure their third straight win at the start of the Pro14 season.
The Warriors are the only team to have won each of their opening three fixtures, though they had to come from behind to maintain their 100 per cent record having trailed 19-14 at the interval.
Glasgow scored seven tries in total, all of which were converted by Hastings, who was the first Warriors player to cross and also booted over a penalty in a fine all-round display.
Tommy Seymour, DTH van der Merwe, Callum Gibbins and George Horne were the others to go over for a Glasgow side that took advantage of Malcolm Jaer’s yellow card early in the second half.

Leinster also scored seven tries as the returning Johnny Sexton and Rob Kearney helped them overcome the Dragons 52-10.
Of those points, 35 were scored in the second half, with scum-half Jamison Gibson-Park contributing two tries.
Cardiff Blues threw away a three-try lead as Zebre claimed a dramatic 26-24 victory to leave the Welsh region still winless.
Olly Robinson, Kristian Dacey and Gareth Anscombe all touched down inside the first 11 minutes and Zebre only went ahead for the first time all night when Oliviero Fabiani crossed in the final stages.
The Scarlets handed Benetton Treviso their first defeat of the campaign, with a 38-29 success that was achieved against a team who played with a one-man disadvantage for nearly an hour.

Gavin Hastings, was playing was he? 🤔Go to comments
Let Moana go and setup Timi Samoa and a Timi Tonga. I guarantee you that the support will be even stronger than that for the Fiji Drua. You only have to remember the support from The respective communities for Mate ma Tonga and Toa Samoa in Rugby League and also the national teams in Rugby Union. Both teams would be able to field teams equal to The Fiji drua or even better.Go to comments
