Warriors rout Ospreys as Scarlets survive Kings scare

By Peter Hanson
Adam Hastings of Glasgow Warriors

Unbeaten Glasgow Warriors cemented their position atop Conference A by battering Ospreys in Pro14, while Southern Kings’ long wait for a first win goes on as they were downed by Scarlets’ second-half revival.


It has been a superb start to the season for the Warriors, who made it nine from nine with a 47-6 rout away to an Ospreys side that are bottom of the pool.

The visitors ran in seven tries, with George Horne scoring twice and Adam Hastings, Scott Cummings, George Turner, Brandon Thomson and Leonardo Sarto also dotting down.

Munster remain second in Conference A, after running out comfortable 36-19 winners at lowly Zebre – Alex Wootton scoring twice in the second half.

South African franchise Southern Kings appeared to be heading for a shock victory against Conference B leaders Scarlets as tries from Michael Makase, Yaw Penxe and Martin du Toit had the hosts 23-10 ahead just after half-time.

Ioan Nicholas and Werner Kruger’s converted tries put the visitors ahead and, although Harlon Klaasen’s score had the Kings briefly back in front, Daniel Jones completed a dramatic 34-30 win for Scarlets with nine minutes remaining.

Jean de Villiers' three word response to 'best in the world' debate

This ‘raging’ debate is only happenning in media circles and has never been a topic in Ireland (although SA media are interested). It makes the media companies money I guess. SA are RWC champions and #1 ranked team although Ireland are back within a point there. The facts point to SA. For a lot of 2021 France beat ALL their rivals and Ireland similar in 2022-2023. It is not wrong to say that on such form either can be deemed to be the current best team if they have beaten all their rivals and ranked #1. The ‘have to have won a world cup’ stipulation is nonsense. The world cup draw and scheduling has been tailored to the traditional big teams since the start. The scheduling also which sees the big teams sheltered from playing a hard pool match the week before has also been a constant. It is extraordinary that for example France have made so many finals. Ireland who were realistically only contenders in 2023 were in a Pool with two other top 5 teams and had to play one of them 7 days before a quarter final against France or New Zealand. Always going to be a coin toss. Scotland’s situation was worse. New Zealand had great chances in 1995, 1999, 2007 but they could not win a tight RWC match. The first tight match they ever won was versus France in the 2011 final, literally they lost every other tight match before that. Some of those NZ teams around that era were #1 surely?
