Preview: Glasgow’s internationals return for Zebre trip

Avatar Nicola Kenton 8 Nov 2019

Winless Zebre will be hoping to spark their 2019/20 Guinness PRO14 season into life with a victory over Glasgow Warriors.

Despite a defiant performance against Leinster and a strong showing in defeat to Ulster, Zebre still remain bottom of the pile in Conference A.

Glasgow have had an inconsistent start to the season with just two victories to their name but one of those was a dominant 50-0 win over Isuzu Southern Kings in Round 5.

Four more members of Scotland’s Rugby World Cup squad return to the Glasgow side this weekend, as Dave Rennie names eight changes to the starting XV.

Ryan Wilson will captain the side for the first time this season, Fraser Brown comes in at hooker while Scott Cummings returns to the second-row and Tommy Seymour starts at full-back.

Zebre have made nine changes for the contest which sees Italian internationals Johan Meyer and David Sisi return in the back row and there will be a completely new front three with Alexandru Tarus, Luca Bigi and Andrea Lovotti all in the side.

Kick-off: Stadio Sergio Lanfranchi, Parma | KO 15:00 (UK), 16:00 (ITA)

How to watch: Live on eir sport 2, DAZN, PRO14.tv

Players to watch out for: Mattia Bellini (Zebre), Adam Hastings (Glasgow)

Against Ulster, Mattia Bellini got off the mark quickly for Zebre, dotting down from close range in the second minute.

Despite going on to lose the game, Bellini has been a bright light for the Parma side this season with his pace on the wing.

Fly-half Adam Hastings put in a solid performance against the Southern Kings in Round 5 kicking four conversions in the convincing win.

The Scotland international will be hoping to pull the strings against Zebre, who are still without a win this campaign.

Key stat: Zebre haven’t won a game in the Guinness PRO14 since 26 October 2018 when they beat Edinburgh Rugby.

Zebre: Michelangelo Biondelli, Charlie Walker, James Elliott, Enrico Lucchin, Mattia Bellini, Carlo Canna, Joshua Renton; Andrea Lovotti, Luca Bigi, Alexandru Tarus, Mick Kearney, Ian Nagle, Giovanni Licata, Johan Meyer, David Sisi

Replacements: Marco Manfredi, Danilo Fischetti, Giosue Zilocchi, Leonard Krumov, Renato Giammarioli, Marcello Violi, Tommaso Boni, Pierre Bruno

Report: Warriors turn on style for bonus win in Parma

Avatar Rich Dore 9 Nov 2019

George Horne struck a first-half double as Glasgow Warriors continued their resurgence with a dominant bonus-point win over Zebre in Parma.

Glasgow lost their first two matches of the season but have now won three in four as their World Cup stars contributed to a powerful away victory in Italy.

Key moments

Just as they did a week prior at home to the Isuzu Southern Kings, the Warriors dominated possession early on and were made to work hard for the opening try – right up until the telling play when Horne smartly took a quick-tap to fire over the line.

Giovanni Licata saw yellow and Carlo Canna continued to kick for territory, but the Warriors waves kept coming and a lovely move off an attacking lineout saw Fraser Brown find Ratu Tagive, who in turn found the waiting Horne for his second.

Zebre desperately tried to find a way back into the match but the third blow came on 36 minutes, a Glasgow spell of pressure eventually seeing Hastings with space in the corner to reach over.

Dave Rennie’s men led 19-0 at the break and soon set about getting the crucial bonus point on the restart, they didn’t have to wait long as a scything move saw Tagive with a huge gap to sprint through on 45 minutes.

Zebre’s challenge got harder on 55 minutes as Johan Meyer saw red for a shoulder charge, but Michael Bradley’s men responded admirably as Pierre Bruno muscled over in the corner.

Another try almost came in the same style minutes later but Alex Allan got in the way on the line, before Zebre thwarted one at the other end.

A strong second half for the Italians was undone five minutes from time as Canna’s no-look pass gave Glasgow the opportunity to kick through for their fifth from Nick Frisby.

Man of the Match

Horne made a surge for this award but was pipped on the day by his half-back partner Adam Hastings.

The No.10 pulled the attacking strings all day but did most of the damage with his boot, a series of measured kicks pinning Zebre back at many a turn.

Play of the Day

There were sumptuous hands from the Warriors all day in unfavourable conditions in Parma, but the move of the match came with their second try on 22 minutes.

Straight off the training ground hooker Brown rampaged in-field off a lineout, switched back to Tagive, who in turn fed Horne for a simple score that he’s become so renowned for in 2019.
