Rennie proud of Glasgow attitude

Glasgow head coach Dave Rennie believes his side were unlucky not to win both their pool matches against Montpellier in the Champions Cup.

After going down to a narrow 36-26 defeat at Altrad Stadium on Saturday, the Warriors' record in the pool now reads played four, lost four.

But Rennie thinks December could have been a very different month for his team and will take some positives into the return to PRO14 action.

“I certainly felt that last week we did enough to win that game but didn’t and I feel the same again today," he told the Warriors website.

“I was really proud of the attitude and effort. We wanted to take the game to them and play at a really high pace and I thought we were really physical with and without the ball.

“We had an opportunity just after half time to score, made an error and a minute later they’d scored twice within five minutes. I’m sure the neutrals will have enjoyed it; it was a good game of footy to watch."

Despite struggling in Europe, Glasgow are flying high in the PRO14 and Rennie refused to be overly upset with how their Champions Cup campaign has played out.

“It’s been a challenging campaign and we’re 0/4 but every game we’ve been right up amongst it," he said.

“We’ll take some learnings from this but that attitude coming in was that we were going to make a statement that we are a better side than the results have shown so far.

“When we got behind we tended to chase it and needed a bit more composure in the last ten minutes, playing at the right end of the field etc. But like I said, the attitude was excellent.”
