Glasgow Warriors’ victory over the Exeter Chiefs at Scotsoun ensured that Dave Rennie’s side avoids a whitewash which would have left them with just a measly two points.
Although they had no hope of progressing to the quarter-finals, a strong team was named and they put in a superb performance to score four tries against the Premiership champions.
At one stage, the Warriors looked home and hosed when they went 19 points ahead with less than a quarter of the game remaining. The Chiefs hit back with tries through Don Armand, who was controversially left out of the England squad during the week, and Ian Whitten, which set up a grandstand finish in Scotstoun but the home side held on for a deserved victory.
Tommy Seymour’s try in the 60th minute could well go down as the best in the competition as it began with the Warriors having possession on their own try line. Stuart Hogg picked up the ball where he passed to Tommy Seymour who rushed up the touchline before passing to Finn Russell. Russell then passed to the supporting Hogg who in turn gave it to the onrushing George Horne who then completed the final pass to Seymour who touched down a remarkable score.
