Woe For Warriors As Ospreys Fly

Glasgow Warriors went down 8-22 to Neath Swansea Ospreys in a lacklustre Celtic League game at Old Anniesland this evening.The Warriors, who went 10-0 down within the first ten minutes of the game had only a try from prop Kevin Tkachuk (his second in as many weeks) and a penalty from stand-off Colin Gregor to show for their somewhat uninspiring performance._Ospreys opened the scoring through full back and man of the match Adrian Cashmore as he stamped his authority with a penalty, a try and a conversion without response from the Warriors._The usually reliable boot of Colin Gregor just wasna?'t quite on form with two of his penalty attempts cruelly bouncing back of the woodwork and it took him until the second half to get Glasgow on the score board.With the exception of a few darting runs from Gregor (including an inspired try-saving tackle), another few from Rory Lamont and some bruising crash balls from Steve Swindall and Graeme Morrison, there was little to shout about for the Warriors supporters who braved the bitter evening for the trip to Old Anniesland, the Warriorsa?" temporary home for the match.Ospreys stand-off Shaun Conner had more luck with his kicking than Gregor as he slotted a drop goal and a hat-trick of penalties to put the Welsh side out of reach.Warriors captain Jon Petrie didna?'t hold back in the criticism of his own sidea?'s display, said: a??To go from a performance like last weeka?'s game against Bourgoin to this is abysmal and I make no apologies in saying that._Questions must be asked of us as wea?"ve proved the team can perform well so ita?'s not a physical problem a?" it must be a mental attitude thing that makes us such a Jekyll and Hyde team as it looked like some of the guysa?" heads just werena?'t in it tonight._We just didna?'t play our style of rugby and Ia?"m really hacked off about it._We obviously have to take a hard look at what happened out there and make sure we do our best so it doesna?'t happen
