Glasgow lock Lewis Bean felt their stunning win at Bath was evidence of head Franco Smith’s plans coming together.


Warriors began their Challenge Cup campaign in impressive fashion with a 22-19 victory at the Recreation Ground.

Bean crossed along with George Turner and Huw Jones before Duncan Weir’s late penalty proved decisive for Glasgow, who host Perpignan in their second game in the competition on Friday night.

The former Worcester and Northampton player said in a Warriors club video: “We have talked a lot about our away performances and we came up with a plan and stuck to it. I think we are seeing the plan come into action.

“I have never won at the Rec as well so it’s brilliant for the club. I am proud of the boys and it’s a special moment.”

Scotland centre Jones was making his first appearance since his summer return to Scotstoun while Cameron Neild, Jack Mann and Angus Fraser all made their Warriors debuts, the latter two also making their professional breakthroughs.

“It’s always great to integrate new players and young blood in the team,” Bean said. “It was great to have them and to get an away win.”
