Scotsman Rugby Show: Toulon hype got to Glasgow

The Scotsman Rugby Show, brought to you in association with Ginger Grouse, looks back on Scotland’s opening weekend of Heineken Cup action with views from the Edinburgh and Glasgow camps.

Reporter David Ferguson was in Toulon with Glasgow and provides an insight into the unique atmosphere of the Stade Mayol when reigning Heineken Cup champions Toulon are at home, and what Glasgow skipper Al Kellock admitted had got to his team. Watch the video and witness the pre-match hype, from the teams’ entrance through the crowds to the passionate Toulonnais screaming their support.

Edinburgh’s new assistant coach Omar Mouneimne also gives his verdict on his side’s surprise victory over Munster at Murrayfield, only the team’s second win of the season, and how he believes that it marked the turning of a corner by the Scots under new management.

We also pack in some great tries scored in club rugby over the past fortnight across a host of grounds, and still keep the show to a coffee-break seven minutes.

We will be back in a fortnight with more club rugby, including action from the British and Irish Cup and interviews. We will have Heineken Cup reflections from Edinburgh and Glasgow players, catch up with the Scotland management ahead of the autumn Test matches with Japan, South Africa and Australia and re-launch our popular ‘quick questions’ with international legends.
