Mark Bennett enjoyed the stand-out moment and Finn Russell also impressed in Glasgow Warriors’ bonus-point victory over Leicester Tigers on Friday night.
With the Lions Tour to New Zealnd firmly on the horizon, Russell kicked 14 points as Glasgow Warriors enjoyed the perfect start to their European Champions Cup campaign.
Warriors scored a try bonus point as they downed Leicester Tigers 42-13, the largest number of points the visitors have ever conceded in Europe.
Scotland full back Stuart Hogg got the Warriors off the mark with a massive penalty kick from inside his own half at Scotstoun Stadium and looked threatening throughout the evening in attack.
A moment of magic
And after a second quarter blitz of three tries, Olympic silver medallist and Scottish international Mark Bennett scored the bonus-point try.
Bennett grabbed a wayward pass from Tigers full-back Mathew Tait and ran 80 metres to dot down under the posts after coming off the bench.
It proved to be a decisive try.
