Glasgow's hopes of marking their first-ever game at Scotstoun with a historic victory were dashed as the Wolfhounds proved too strong in almost every department of this Celtic Challenge game. The Irish side ran in six tries to go three from three in the six-team women’s tournament - and the margin of victory would have been far greater but for some defiant goal-line defence from the Warriors, who have now lost all three of their outings.

Wolfhounds hooker Sarah Delaney opened the scoring with a try from a lineout maul, then Ireland prop Linda Djougang got the second, finishing off from close range after a Warriors clearance kick had been well fielded. Dannah O’Brien converted both. 

Djougang then had to go off injured, and her powerful presence in the Wolfhounds defence was visibly missed as Glasgow began to pile on the pressure. That eventually paid off as, after good work by Scotland forward Louise McMillan, winger Phaedra Snailham marked her debut with a score in the left corner.

The conversion was missed, and the Wolfhounds hit back late in the half, with Sophie Barrett breaking through a couple of despairing tackles to touch down.

Nikki Caughey’s conversion made the score at the break 5-21, and Glasgow fell further behind within minutes of the restart when scrum-half Katie Whelan broke from midfield to claim her team’s fourth try, again converted by Caughey.

With half an hour to play McMillan powered over the line for her team’s second try, converted by Lucy MacRae. But the visitors dominated the final half-hour, adding a fifth try - unconverted this time - through winger Katie Corrigan.

With timing running out, Brittany Hogan got the Wolfhounds’ sixth of the day with a No 8 pick-up from the base of a scrum, and Caughey’s conversion completed the scoring.

Snailham was yellow-carded five minutes from time after the Warriors had offended once too often in defence.

Edinburgh are away today to Brython Thunder.
