LIVE: DHL Stormers v Glasgow Warriors

PUBLISHED: January 8, 2023



The DHL Stormers are in Glasgow for their first-ever Vodacom United Rugby Championship match at Scotstoun Stadium against the Glasgow Warriors. You can follow all the action live, right here with our updates.

The DHL Stormers claimed a comfortable 32-7 win when the two teams met at DHL Stadium last season, but today will be a different prospect altogether against a Glasgow team that has won their last five matches and have a formidable record at home.

Blue skies at Scotstoun, so conditions look good for an early kick-off. It is chilly but we should see a good game of rugby.

0 – Kick-off at Scotstoun where we are up against the Glasgow Warriors.

2 – Great defence early on as Glasgow take it through the phases but the ball is knocked loose so we have the first scrum on the 22.

4 – Carried up to halfway, but it is knocked on by Dayimani so Glasgow have a scrum this time.

6 – We get it back and Willemse breaks up the middle. Cross-kick from Libbok and Glasgow taken into touch in the 22.

8 – Glasgow push the maul into touch and then kick long. They get it back and score on the counter-attack in the corner to make it 5-0.

11 – Blommetjies taken out in the air and Glasgow shown a yellow card for that.

13 – Penalty at the maul and we kick to the corner again. Dweba comes off the back of the maul and goes over for the try. The conversion from Libbok puts us 7-5 up.

17 – Glasgow respond with their second try as skipper Kyle Steyn scores to give them the lead back at 10-7.

19 – Knock-on from Glasgow under a high ball so we have a scrum near halfway.

27 – High tackle in the 22 so we kick it into the corner again. Pressure building on the Glasgow defence.

30 – Great ball control and eventually a long pass puts Blommetjies through for the try to put us back in front at 12-10.

42 – We win the ball back early and take it up to the 22, but Hartzenberg is taken into touch. In at the side at the maul, so Glasgow can clear.
