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.

How Maro Itoje terrorised the All Blacks lineout

Yeah England were much smarter, they put their much vaster experience to use in both the scrum (bending/not taking hit) and lineout (Itoje early sacks) law vagaries. Really though, I know what is there, I’m more worried about Englands locks. We only got to see Itoje and Martin, right? Depth allround in the England camp was probably the difference in the series and the drop off when Itoje reached his minutes limit for the season (it was like the plug was pulled from the charger) was up there with keeping Sexton on the park in that quarter final. What happened there? You have a lot of watching hours experience with locks come blindsides Nick, especially with a typical Australian player make up, have you see a six the size of Barrett absolutely dominate the position and his opposition? I can easily see Scott, and even Martin for that matter, moving to the blindside and playing like Tadgh Beirne with the amount of top locks we have coming through to partner Patrick. Still with the English mindset, because despite running the best All Black team I’ve seen in a long time close, they do need to find improvement, and although I thought they had a lot of good performances from their 7’s (over the years), I really like the prospect of Cunningham-South in his 8 spot and Earl on the open. Can you see Martin as mobile enough to take over Lawes? I absolutely loved his aggression when Jordie ran upto him to try and grab the ball. That alone is enough reason for me to try him there.
