GLASGOW 16 EDINBURGH 6

Glasgow climbed back to the top of the Guinness PRO12 table after claiming a 16-6 victory in an uninspiring game against Edinburgh.

The margin of the win means that all is still to play for as to the destiny of the 1872 Cup when the teams meet again next Friday at Murrayfield.

Edinburgh were unable to take advantage of early position, with Sam Hidalgo-Clyne’s early penalty cancelled out by Duncan Weir.

Glasgow finished the half stronger to lead 13-3 at the turn thanks to a try by Josh Strauss to finish the best move of the game with Weir converting.

Ospreys can return to top of the table if they were to win the late kick-off Welsh derby at home against Scarlets
