Northampton v Glasgow - Live
80 That is that as Lamb boots the ball out. Five points for Northampton, who join Ulster at the Pool summit after Round One. Next up, we have Toulouse v Leicester. Don't go anywhere!
78 Play is on halfway with Glasgow set to pack down again. This one is drawing to a close but can the Warriors get down into the red zone in order to pick up a losing bonus-point?
76 Ken Pisi has been named the official man-of-the-match and rightly so, with his brother also impressive with his two tries. Saints are looking comfortable here as they defend a scrum in Glasgow territory.
74 Northampton aren't done yet either as they look for a fifth but the pass from Lamb is forward on the 22 so possession is coughed up. Entertaining finish at the Gardens.
72 LAMB CONVERSION! 24-15! An important two points.
71 ARTEMYEV TRY! 22-15! There it is. Northampton have the bonus-point as number on the left saw Myler draw the last man to find the Russian.
69 Saints fans thought they had the bonus-point try as Hartley went for the corner with a man on his back. But the hooker spilled the ball when reaching out so it's now a defensive scrum five out.
66 Excellent positional kick from Lamb puts Saints in a promising position as they await Glasgow's throw from Hall. Northampton managed to force an error so it's now a home scrum, fifteen metres out.
63 Oh boy... Myler has missed again! That's his fourth miss of the match...
61 Lawes pinches one off Glasgow's throw! Good work there by the England lock, who is starting to regain his form. Now the Saints give the ball some air, and Myler takes a long pass out wide by Lamb. But Glasgow are deemed offsides. Penalty to Northampton, and chance for the hosts to extend their small lead.
58 Penalty to the Warriors - Tonga'uiha pinged for early engagement. Jackson tries to find territory with a decent touchfinder to set up play on Northampton's 10m line.
57 Oh dear, Lamb puts down his very first touch of the ball. So Glasgow will have the put-in at the scrum...
55 Myler is having the best of games for the Saints - one feels it's only a matter of time before he's replaced. But instead, James Wilson makes way for Ryan Lamb. So Myler goes to full-back. And there's another change for Glasgow - Chris Fusaro on for Barclay.
52 Change for Glasgow now as they look to get some fresh legs on the ptich - Tom Ryder replaces Tim Swinson in the second row.
50 Glasgow a bit over-eager as prop Ryan Grant gets called over for coming in from the side and taking a Saints player out. Just a warning for now from the man in the middle.
48 Northampton hunting a bonus-point try... they've certainly clicked into a higher gear. Strong run from Soane Tonga'uiha who had a quiet first half. The game is being played at a frantic pace - both sides not holding anything back.
45 Myler attempts to convert his own try from far out. But once again, he can't find his target. However, the Saints take the lead for the first time in this match! 15-17!
44 TRY, NORTHAMPTON. Now the Saints are just 5m out and can sniff another try! Glasgow's defence is stretched... out the ball comes, and it's Brian Mujati who takes a low pass but hangs on and shows quick hands to get the pigskin to Dylan Hartley. The Saints skipper then puts Myler over for the easiest try the pivot will ever score. Good work by the Northampton front-rowers who could've been mistaken for a pair of centres!
42 Henry Pyrgos breaks blind, puts in a grubber kick and gets taken out, but ref waves play on. He's overcooked it and James Wilson is under no pressure to run back and dot down for a 22m drop-out.
Second half Welcome back! Glasgow with some work to do in the second half after fading somewhat before the break.
Half-time NORTHAMPTON 12-15 GLASGOW
40 CONVERSION, NORTHAMPTON. Now Myler makes no mistake from bang in front. And the Saints, who were trailing by 15 points at one stage, close the gap to just three points. Highly entertaining first half! Stick around for the second folks...
39 TRY, NORTHAMPTON. The Saints aren't done yet - this time Ken Pisi exploits some weak defence between Jackson and Horne. The winger has one man to beat, but takes the safe option and passes inside to his brother George who runs in under the posts for his brace and the Saints second on the stroke of the half-time!
38 Myler's conversion attempt drifts wide, so Glasgow now hold a 10-point lead. But Saints fans will beath a sigh of relief that their team are on the board as half-time approaches...
37 TRY, NORTHAMPTON. Glasgow on the backfoot - George Pisi with ball in hand, puts his head down and charges for the corner... he gets hit from behind in a tackle, but has the momentum to take him over. Try!
34 The Saints need to score next if they are to stay in this match. The crowd haven't had very much to cheer about thus far. But they're on their feet now as Samu Manoa goes on a bulldozing run up the middle - making 30-odd metres for his team.
30 This time the conversion attempt from Horne is no good. But Glasgow certainly have their tails up thanks to a surprise 15-point lead!
29 TRY, GLASGOW. Dougie Hall finds his target, Ruaridh Jackson fires a skip pass to Tommy Seymour who has drifted off his wing. He then finds Lamont on his outside and the Scotland flyer evades four would-be Northampton tacklers for superb touchdown in the corner. Another try to Glasgow!
28 Stephen Myler kicks the little possession Northampton have had into touch, setting up a line-out just outside the Saint's 22. Glasgow will have the throw-in...
26 CONVERSION, GLASGOW. Horne now with the tricky sideline conversion, but nails it! 0-10!
25 TRY, GLASGOW. The visitors work their way towards Northampton tryline, and come away with the spoils after Strauss manages to power his way over. Try for the South African on his Heineken Cup debut!
22 Still waiting for a decision - Pisi doesn't look convinced and it's clear why after looking at the replay as the winger failed to get the ball down. Take a bow Sean Lamont! No try!
21 Now Lawes goes on the charge for the Saints! He has Ken Pisi in support and gets the pass away. Pisi has pace to burn and looks to have scored the first try of the match... but some brilliant defence from Lamont forces the ref to go upstairs and check with the TMO.
19 PENALTY, GLASGOW. Over it goes! First blood to the Scots. 0-3!
18 The two packs engage, but Saints prop Brian Mujati is pinged for going in too early. It's kickable for Glasgow as Peter Horne steps up with the tee.
16 A kick out on the full by George Pisi hands Glasgow a line-out on halfway. Alex Dunbar now finds himself and space and nearly goes all the way, but Dylan Hartley manages to get hang on for dear life and bring him down. Both sides rush in to help, but the ball isn't coming out and the ref blows for a scrum.
14 Northampton on the attack just inside Glasgow's 22 - Dom Waldouck steps out of a tackle and turns on the gas towards the whitewash before some desperate defence from the visitors keeps the Saints centre at bay.
12 Hard luck for Glasgow now as full-back Stuart Hogg makes his way off the field. He's replaced by Peter Murchie.
9 Turnover! The Saints steal back possession, and begin a risky counter-attack from behind their goal line. And it's paid off! George Pisi gets the home crowd on their feet with a terrific break-out that sees the Saints speedster race 80m upfield before he's eventually dragged down.
7 Now the visitors are just 5m out, and it looks like Sean Lamont is over... no, he's held up inches from the line. Glasgow swing it wide as the Scots continue to bash away at Northampton's tryline.
4 Glasgow have managed to put a few phases together early on though as Henry Pyrgos goes a sniping run on the short side. The Saints having to do all the tackling thus far - Glasgow showing they're not here to make up the numbers.
2 And we're under way! Stephen Myler kicks off - taken in by Glasgow flanker John Barclay who charged forward but runs into a brick wall in the form of Courtney Lawes who puts in a monster hit.
Welcome! Hello and welcome to Franklin's Gardens for this opening round Heineken Cup clash between Northampton and Glasgow! The Warriors have yet to win away from home against an English side but are in good form and chasing a fifth successive victory after a run including victories at Welsh regions Ospreys and Cardiff Blues.

I watched Bath v Saracens last Friday and was very impressed with George Ford and how well he controlled that game for Bath. I would love to see him play a big role in the autumn internationals and I hope Stuart Lancaster starts him for at least two of the four Tests.
