Dan The Man Does The Double

Pic: Scott Lawson's boot helped Dan slot the final kick.Border Reivers 19, Glasgow Warriors 20An injury-time try by Colin Gregor and a touchline conversion by Dan Parks with the last kick of the game snatched victory for Glasgow Warriors against Border Reivers at Netherdale a?" the second time the Warriors have beaten the Reivers this season, albeit by a closer margin than the 25-0 result at Hughenden. The remarkable thing about Parksa?" pressure kick was that he did it wearing Scott Lawsona?'s boot after his own had flown off his foot and subsequently fallen apart when he made a clearance kick earlier in the game!Glasgow Warriors head coach Sean Lineen said: a??Ita?'s a fine way to end the year._The playersa?" attitude was tremendous and they never gave up._Both teams had so much to play for and in the first half we lacked a little bit of composure so we still have things to work on but wea?"re turning what were one point losses into one point wins and that shows a lot of character."Glasgow had their work cut out for them in the first half as referee Rob Dickson emphasised that he was in charge by repeatedly penalising The Warriors and having no hesitation in marching them back a further ten metres if they protested._After a frantic start from both sides, the Reivers stretched their lead to 9-0 through the boot of Calum MacRae.The Warriors were first on the try-sheet though - Hefin Oa?"Hare scored Glasgowa?'s first and with Parksa?" conversion and his earlier penalty, the visitors had clawed their way back and took a 10-9 lead after 34 minutes. Calum MacRae added to his three previous penalties by putting The Reivers back ahead late in the first half with his fourth penalty and the home side entered half time with a 12-10 lead.The weather deteriorated throughout the evening making handling awkward and the underfoot conditions heavy and slippery so there was certainly no a??champagne rugbya?" on show._Nevertheless, there were impressive performances from both the Glasgow forwards and backs and the substitutes certainly made an impact too.The Reivers were unable to take advantage of Justin Vaa?"aa?'s absence in the sin-bin soon after the interval, and the second half was scoreless when Glasgow looked to have squandered a perfect opportunity for Parks to slot another three penalty points when they opted instead to kick for touch and the resulting lineout near to the Reiversa?" try line even though they were a man down with Vaa?"a in the sin bin._Glasgow won the lineout but subsequently knocked the ball on and it wasna?'t until the 72nd minute when Parks put Glasgow in front again with his second penalty goal._However that lead was short-lived as Kelly Brown plunged over from a quick throw-in in the 77th minute. The Reivers had kicked for touch but Thom Evans had managed to get fingertips to the ball before it bounced over the line._The Borderers took a quick throw-in as Glasgow tracked back to defend and in a game of numbers (the home side out-numbering the visitors), Scotland flanker Brown dived over the line.MacRae converted, and the home crowd assumed the game was over as it headed into injury time but patience paid off for Glasgow as they worked their way back up the pitch, keeping the ball alive with some inventive recycling and as they worked the ball out wide, substitute Colin Gregor tenaciously worked his way through several defenders and squeezed over in the left corner._With the score-line 18-17, Parks had to slot the conversion from the touchline._Having missed only one kick during the game (it fell just below the crossbar) to MacRaea?'s two, he had hisa?_or rather Scott Lawsona?'sa?_kicking boots on and sent the ball through the posts much to the delight of the vocal travelling supporters.With four wins in a row (two home and two away) and victories in their last six home matches, things are looking positive for Glasgow Warriors as they head into a new year and prepare to face Magners League leaders, Ulster, at Hughenden on Saturday 6 January (kick off 5.30pm).Att: 1,542 Border Reivers: Calum MacRae (capt), Simon Danielli, Nick De Luca, Bryan Rennie, Brendon Daniel, Steve Jones, Rob Chrystie, Gavin Kerr, Steve Scott, Ed Kalman, Stuart Grimes, Opeta Palepoi, Scott Gray, Andy Miller, Kelly Brown.Replacements: Ross Ford (for Scott 49mins), Bruce Douglas (for Kalman 55mins), Scott Newlands, John Dalziel, Brendan McKerchar, Steve Jones/Gregor Townsend, Garry Law (for Danielli 26-40+mins, 40 mins).Glasgow Warriors: Rory Lamont, Hefin OA?Hare, Andy Henderson, Scott Barrow, Thom Evans, Dan Parks, Graeme Beveridge, Justin VaA?a, Scott Lawson, Euan Murray, Dan Turner, Alastair Kellock (capt), Andrew Wilson, John Barclay, Jon Petrie.Replacements: Fergus Thomson (for Lawson 50 mins), Kevin Tkachuk (for Eddie 52 mins, for Va'a 56 mins), Andy Newman (for Turner 65 mins), James Eddie (for Petrie 40 mins), Sam Pinder (for Beveridge 59 mins), Colin Gregor (for Barrow 64 mins), Sean Marsden.Pic: Scott Lawson's boot helped Dan slot the final kick.Border Reivers 19, Glasgow Warriors 20An injury-time try by Colin Gregor and a touchline conversion by Dan Parks with the last kick of the game snatched victory for Glasgow Warriors against Border Reivers at Netherdale a?" the second time the Warriors have beaten the Reivers this season, albeit by a closer margin than the 25-0 result at Hughenden.
