Report

GLASGOW secured second place in the Championship with a 49-41 win over Leicester to book an automatic spot in the play-off semi-finals.

The result means the third-placed Lions will now take on Scunthorpe in the quarter-finals as they look to continue their title defence.

Ricky Wells top-scored for Glasgow with ten points in a solid team display, whilst Ryan Douglas collected 13+3 for the visitors who ended the meeting with two late 5-1s.

Tigers star Sam Jensen (7+1) said: “It was great to have a win against Leicester – it was, on paper, a really hard match. Everybody kicked in today and we had the victory.

“We are probably settling down now after a few changes to the team in the middle of the season. I think we have each other’s backs as a team and today everybody delivered, we beat a great team.

“Everybody was thinking it was going to be a close match, but we were 10 or 15 points ahead at one point, so it was a big statement from the club.”

Douglas said: “Today was fairly slick at Glasgow, we didn’t expect it to be so slick. It took us half a meeting to try and get the set-up.

“But in the end we definitely got that sorted and had some heat advantages and we were on the pace a lot more.

“If we have to come back to Glasgow again, we can start off more competitively and get a better result.”
