Kings Thumped By Glasgow Warriors

Eight-try Glasgow Warriors got their Guinness PRO14 season firmly up and running with a thumping 50-0 victory over winless and lacklustre Isuzu Southern Kings at Scotstoun.

First-half scores from Grant Stewart, Matt Fagerson, Callum Gibbins, Oli Kebble and Nikola Matawalu gave the hosts a 29-0 lead at the break, and scores from Zander Fagerson, Ratu Tagive and a penalty try after the break put the result beyond doubt.

Having conceded the fewest number of penalties in the Guinness PRO14 across the first four rounds, Kings were uncharacteristically ill-disciplined in the early stages of the game with Ruaan Lerm and S'bura Sithole sent to the sin bin.

The Kings rallied in periods but ultimately failed to ever get a foothold in the game, and defeat in Scotland leaves the South Africans still chasing their first Championship win since January.

Glasgow Warriors: Tries: Grant Stewart, Matt Fagerson, Callum Gibbins, Oli Kebble, Nikola Marawalu, Zander Ferguson, Penalty Trie, Ratu Tagive. Conversions: Adam Hastings (4).
