Glasgow ran in seven tries to beat Bourgoin at Firhill and end a poor European campaign on a high note.

Winger Mike Roberts touched down twice and Andy Craig added another as the home side trailed 23-22 at the break.

With Andy Henderson yellow-carded, the visitors stretched their lead but Glasgow rallied strongly.

Dan Turner, Kevin Tkachuk, Rory Lamont and Graeme Morrison all breached the French side's defence, while Colin Gregor's kicking was accurate.

Glasgow end the Heineken Cup pool stage bottom of Group 5, with just one win and two bonus points, but seven tries is a new club record in the competition.

  • Glasgow boss Hugh Campbell:
    "Overall, it was another disappointing campaign - but any win at this level is worth celebrating and this result will certainly stand us in good stead for the future.

    "We achieved it by playing some fantastic rugby against a very, very accomplished French team and in terms of building confidence I could not have asked for more.

    "The pressure was really on us when they picked up a couple of tries while we were down to 14 men. However, the response was fantastic."

    Replacements: Parks for O'Hare (75), Morrison for Craig (69), Barrow for Henderson (50), Pinder for Beveridge (60), Harrison for Tckachuk (40), Lawson for Thomson (64), Hamilton for Hayter (77).
