'Last year we got the better of them so I'd imagine they are coming here looking for a big win'

Glasgow defence coach Kenny Murray was delighted to make it two games without conceding a try but warned his side must improve their discipline when they face Leinster.

Warriors recorded a third consecutive United Rugby Championship win when they beat Zebre 17-6 in Italy on Saturday.

First-half tries from Lewis Bean and Sione Tuipulotu put the visitors in control and they limited their hosts to two penalties from Carlo Canna. A Duncan Weir penalty was all either side could muster after the break.

Murray told glasgowwarriors.org: “It’s good to see our defence has held strong – that’s two weeks in a row we haven’t conceded a try which is a real bonus going into the Leinster game.

“Zebre are a physical side but I thought we defended pretty well for most of the game. There were a couple of line breaks from our kick chase which put us under pressure but overall we stood up to them really well.

“We knew they had real threats across the park, our whole theme this week was around caging Canna and not giving him space which I thought we did well for most of the game.”

Murray added: “In the second half, our discipline let us down a little bit. We conceded around eight or nine penalties in the second half. We have to be a lot better there – particularly against Leinster who will put you under pressure.

“It’s going to be our toughest game of the season. They are playing well and are scoring a lot of points. This week they brought back in their British and Irish Lions so they have a really strong squad to pick from.

“At the end of last year we got the better of them at Scotstoun so I’d imagine they are coming here looking for a big win. We know what’s coming and we’ll have to be at our best to beat the best.”
