Glasgow target Champions Cup double over Exeter

·2-min read

Glasgow Warriors head coach Danny Wilson is already looking towards their Champions Cup clash with Exeter Chiefs following their dominant victory over the Ospreys.

The Scottish outfit ran out comfortable winners at Scotstoun on Saturday, securing a 38-19 triumph over the Welsh region – their fifth success in the United Rugby Championship this season.

They are finding their form after a difficult first season under Wilson and will look to take that momentum into next week’s clash with the 2020 European winners.

Glasgow were excellent in their first clash with the Chiefs, overcoming the Englishmen 22-7, and will hope to repeat that feat at Sandy Park.

Getting to that next level

“We said that to go on to that next level, we need to be critical of these types of performance,” Wilson said.

“We don’t want to just sit back and pat ourselves on the back, we want to analyse what we need to do to be better and identify what we need to do to go and consistently challenge the top teams in Europe.

“That’s what we want to develop into, and it’s a journey that we’ll take step by step. At the moment, though, we’ve taken some big steps forward and there’s more to come.

“We don’t want to go down to Exeter and let our win here last month look like a one-off. We want to go down there and show we can back that performance up away from home, and by getting a good away win.”

‘I wouldn’t be qualified to coach Munster’ – Paul O’Connell

Ireland and Munster legend Paul O’Connell has ruled himself out of taking over the reins from Johann van Graan as the Irish province’s head coach at the end of this season.

O’Connell, who is Ireland’s forwards coach, believes he would have to be fully “qualified” if he ever took on the role.

“Well, look, I won’t be doing it,” O’Connell told the 2 Johnnies podcast.

“I wouldn’t be qualified to do it. I was saying the other day, it’s like a guy if you were good at pulling pints being asked to run the bar! They’re two different things.”
