Key Quotes

  • Dave Rennie (Glasgow): “It’s obviously a big thing from a Scottish perspective, both us and Edinburgh making it through to the final eight. It’s a tough competition, obviously we’re pretty keen to build on what we did last year, so we’re going to have to play really well but we’ve got a tough pool.” 
  • Steve Diamond (Sale): They play a quick style of play – it’s not in the ruck for more than two or three seconds and [it’s] multi-phased – so if your D isn’t right, if you’ve not got your line-speed right, then we could have a hard day at the office. So, we’ve got to make sure we have those principles in place.” 

Key Facts

  • These two sides have faced each other twice previously back in 2002/03 with both home sides winning in their two pool stage meetings.
  • Glasgow have won eight of their last 10 home games against Premiership opposition in the Heineken Champions Cup, although one of them came against eventual champions Saracens last season.
  • Sale will be back in the Heineken Champions Cup for the first time since the 2016/17 season.
  • Adam Hastings played more minutes than any other Glasgow player in the Heineken Champions Cup last season and finished with 61 points.

Glasgow hold on despite Sale’s late charge

Glasgow opened their Champions Cup Pool 2 campaign with a hard-fought but deserved 13-7 victory over Sale at Scotstoun despite a late charge from the Sharks.

Glasgow dominated the opening period with Sale hardly able to get out of their own territory in the first half-hour.

Fly-half Adam Hastings made the pressure count with two penalties inside that period to put them 6-0 ahead before Sale enjoyed their best spell of the half without being able to make it count on the scoreboard.

A penalty eased the pressure on the home line and from a midfield move centre Sam Johnson took a poor pass and timed his delivery to winger Daniel Van der Merwe superbly and he strode in to score. Hastings again converted as Glasgow held a 13-0 half-time advantage.

Sale brought on Chris Ashton and Rob du Preez in a bid to increase their threat in attack and they were back in the game on the hour mark.

Glasgow full-back Tommy Seymour lost possession near his line and from the resulting scrum replacement Coenie Oosthuizen forced his way over with AJ MacGinty converting.

The Sharks visibly lifted but Glasgow, whose defensive effort was magnificent throughout, held on in a tense finish to score a richly deserved success.

Glasgow travel to Exeter Chiefs next Saturday as they bid to keep up the momentum while Sale will try and kick-start their campaign when they host La Rochelle on Sunday.
