Castres ended the Heineken Cup hopes of Glasgow in a dour 9-6 victory at Scotstoun Stadium on Friday night.

In a poor advert for European rugby, the French side came from 6-3 down as the boot of Rory Kockott out-shot Scott Wight three to two.

The Scottish stand-off nailed two from two penalties to give his side a 6-3 lead inside the second quarter, while Kockott missed three shots but levelled matters with his second succesful kick just before the break.

Both teams had had spells of possession but neither goal line had been seriously threatened thanks to determined tackling and referee Wayne Barnes detecting penalty offences.

Glasgow made a livelier start to the second half but after 47 minutes Wight, in a moment which is sure to haunt him, was unable to take advantage of a penalty shot which was straight on from the Castres 22.

In turn Castres twice were unable to make anything of pressure situations on Glasgow's line and lost their advantage by conceding penalties.

But with 57 minutes gone Kockott was able to nudge Castres into the lead with a long-range penalty.

The hard-fought exchanges appeared to have resulted in concern for Glasgow captain Al Kellock who went off late on with an arm injury.

With Glasgow unable to threaten further they saw their European hopes end as Castres held on to keep theirs alive.
