Glasgow v Toulon - Live

Last updated: 18th January 2014  

Full Time80 Full-time: Glasgow 8-15 Toulon

79 Glasgow threw everything at their visitors but to no avail as Toulon stood firm to book a home QF.

78 What about this from Richie Vernon, as the back-row converted to wing sprints down the left. Glasgow have broken downfield as the momentum suddenly shifts in favour of the Warriors. Grandstand finish.

74 The game could have been sewn up there but Wilkinson misses with a penalty attempt that goes just wide. Glasgow drop out then but back come the French outfit, enjoying all the territory right now.

71 The hosts continue their revival as they go through the phases just outside the Toulon 22. But just as they start to show a sign of weakness, Steffon Armitage pounces before they clear their lines.

68 Glasgow ball again now as MacArthur throws right on halfway before Weir sends a lovely kick further downfield, which puts the Warriors where they want to be. Toulon line-out, 20 from their own line.

65 The conversion is missed by Weir so the Warriors still need two scores to sneak a comeback victory.

TRY64 TRY, GLASGOW, FUSARO! 8-15! A strange try to say the least. A Toulon ruck on their own line led to the ball squirting out the back and after TMO confirmation, Fusaro is adjudged to have grounded it.

62 This is encouraging stuff from Glasgow as they run well over halfway with a penalty soon coming. It goes into the Toulon 22 via the boot of Weir, with seven points here set to make things interesting.

Penalty58 PENALTY, TOULON, WILKINSON! 3-15! Yes, he does.

Yellow Card57 YELLOW CARD, GLASGOW, MATAWALU! It's fourteen v fourteen as the wing deliberately slaps down Burden's attempted pass after the hooker's break through the middle of a ruck. Wilkinson will soon kick this.

Yellow Card55 YELLOW CARD, TOULON, TILLOUS-BORDE! Taking out the man is the call so RCT are down to fourteen men.

54 Changes coming for Glasgow after that as Ed Kalman, Chris Cusiter and Duncan Weir are all sent on.

Penalty52 PENALTY, TOULON, WILKINSON! 3-12! A trend is emerging. Scrum dominance resulting in three points.

49 But the possession isn't forthcoming for Glasgow and it will be a Toulon scrum, midfield on the 22. Here is Wilkinson, this time taking it up before Juan Smith adds his weight. Just fifteen out here.

47 Toulon are back in possession and also have the territory 30 metres out as Wilkinson tidies before being unceremoniously thrown into touch by a Warriors forward. Glasgow line-out is coming up then.

Penalty43 Toulon are back in possession and also have the territory 30 metres out as Wilkinson tidies before being unceremoniously thrown into touch by a Warriors forward. Glasgow line-out is coming up then.

Penalty43 PENALTY, TOULON, WILKINSON! 3-9! Another plus point for the Toulon pack as they win a scrum penalty.

41 Welcome back to the action and it is Wilkinson getting the second 40 underway, finding space in the Glasgow ranks. Gregor Townsend won't like that and also the fact Hogg's clearance makes six metres.

Half Time40 Half-time: Glasgow 3-6 Toulon

Penalty38 PENALTY, TOULON, WILKINSON! 3-6! Andrew Sheridan can take a big slice of the credit for those points as a scrum penalty leads to Wilko knocking over his second penalty as half-time nears. A key moment.

35 Poor from Toulon right now as Glasgow show solidity in defence on halfway. Now a loose pass from the hosts falls into the hands of Giteau before an error soon after leads to a Warriors scrum put in. Of course there have been plenty of errors in these conditions, with the latest seeing Hogg kick dead.

Penalty31 PENALTY, GLASGOW, JACKSON! 3-3! It didn't last long as Jackson levels matters from bang in front.

Penalty28 PENALTY, TOULON, WILKINSON! 0-3! The visitors lead as the first points of the game arrive at last.

27 That's how you do it. Steffon Armitage has just kicked superbly off the back of a scrum, putting his side ten metres from the home line with a Glasgow throw to come. Pressure is on here for the Scots.

24 Maitland rises to claim a Wilkinson tester before Jackson puts one up of his own, on Mitchell. Play is stuck on halfway right now with Toulon in possession through Giteau, who kicks it out on the full.

21 That almost all changed as Glasgow Warriors full-back Stuart Hogg sprinted out from his own 22, but Toulon recovered 20 metres from their own line. Here comes the home outfit again though soon after.

19 Glasgow's Wilson has collapsed a Toulon maul so up steps Wilkinson for a first shot at goal. It's a difficult attempt from 45 metres on the angle, which he misses. We remain scoreless at Scotstoun.

16 Glasgow get their hands on the ball again here but the pass from Nakarawa to Matawalu is called forward by referee JP Doyle. Net result, we'll have a Toulon scrum still inside French territory.

13 They get out of their own half too, with a Toulon scrum set to be formed 35 metres from their line.

9 All the territory is with Toulon but after 23 phases, Glasgow win a relieving penalty. Mini victory.

7 Toulon put it into the Glasgow 22 and that prompts phase after phase of patient rugby from the French side, with their big runners being used. This is smart from Toulon as it reaches the eleventh phase.

5 The rain has stopped in Glasgow but don't expect much running rugby today as the driving maul is set up by Toulon. Sebastien Tillous-Borde takes it up on halfway and a Warrior isn't releasing. Penalty.

3 That scrum took one and a half minutes to be completed and it is Glasgow in possession with Nakarawa soon getting ball in hand. Now it's Eddie before a chip over the top leads to Matawalu being offside.

1 And we are off with Glasgow getting things going on this lush, green pitch which could turn a boggy brown pretty soon. It's an early mistake from Chris Fusaro so it will be a Toulon scrum on halfway.

Toulon have brought in Delon Armitage in the only change to their line-up. He replaces Rudi Wulf as Drew Mitchell moves from full-back to the right wing. Jonny Wilkinson captains the side from pivot.

Glasgow pair Ruaridh Jackson and James Eddie make their 100th appearance for the club. Sean Lamont moves from the wing to centre and partners Alex Dunbar. Niko Matawalu comes in on the left wing and centurion Jackson continues his half-back partnership with Henry Pyrgos. Pat MacArthur comes in at hooker and Moray Low starts at tighthead. Leone Nakarawa is lock while Ryan Wilson is number eight.

Hello and welcome to what has been a very wet Glasgow over the past few days. The covers are now off though at Scotstoun Stadium and it looks to be decent condition before kick-off (we shall see how it holds up). Toulon have already won this Pool and can go provisionally to the summit of the top eight with victory today and will stay there if Ulster lose at Leicester later on. Team news is coming up.

Give George Ford the chance to shine for England, says Dewi Morris

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.
