Glasgow Warriors face an anxious wait over their Heineken Champions Cup fate after Stade Rochelais claimed a 38-30 win at Scotstoun Stadium on Saturday night.
With Glasgow’s Pool A campaign now over, the Scottish region must hope that Montpellier Hérault Rugby don’t pick up a point when they welcome Exeter Chiefs tomorrow – or they will miss out on qualification for the Round of 16.
With Glasgow harbouring hopes of a win to secure their knockout stage spot, La Rochelle went over for the first try of the match on 19 minutes courtesy of Raymond Rhule.
Glasgow fly half Ross Thompson and La Rochelle counterpart Pierre Popelin took it in turns to display their kicking prowess throughout the first half, but the visitors went into the break six points up thanks to Paul Boudehent’s try in overtime.
There are 29 lads out there playing 🏉, while Brice Dulin is enjoying some football.
So impressive from the Frenchman.

Glasgow had been celebrating just a few minutes before, believing that a knock-on had put an end to the French side’s attacking intent for the first period.
The hosts came out firing at the start of the second half, with a try from Josh McKay within seconds of the restart putting them in front.
But after that the errors began to pile up, and tries from Pierre Bougarit and Pierre Boudehent, plus thee more penalties, two from Popelin and one from replacement Ihaia West, ensured a win for the visitors.
Glasgow will take some solace from two late tries scored by replacement Ollie Smith, scoring a brace on his European debut, but there was no miracle comeback for the hosts.
