GLASGOW 70 ZEBRE 10

Defending champions Glasgow secured a second sweeping win over Zebre in three weeks on Friday to guarantee a Guinness PRO12 play-off berth.

Glasgow, who triumphed 43-14 in Parma on April 8, led 35-10 at half-time, with tries by Leone Nakarawa, Adam Ashe, Glenn Bryce (two) and Taqele Naiyaravoro. And they pulled further clear after the interval.

Nakarawa completed his hat-trick, and Greg Peterson, Ali Price and Duncan Weir all dotted down, with the latter kicking every conversion in a 70-10 rout.

The Zebre tries were scored by Kayle van Zyl and Tommaso Boni.

The result, coupled with Connacht’s surprise 22-21 defeat at Benetton Treviso, lifted the Warriors top of the table.
