Glasgow Warriors Head Coach Franco Smith said: “It was unfortunate that our unbeaten run came to an end in the way that it did, as we know we have performed better this season, but we’re looking forward to getting the wheels in motion again at Scotstoun tomorrow night against a difficult opponent. The players have responded well in training all week, and have worked hard across all areas. We’re looking forward to running out at home tomorrow night.”



Zebre Parma Head Coach Fabio Roselli said: "We face a team in great form that is having an excellent season and that makes possession and drive its best weapons. The biggest challenges start with the defence, which will be able to break their possession quickly and build opportunities to score. The other challenge concerns the lineout and the defence of the drive: in recent weeks we have worked a lot on this aspect and we are confident that we can show encouraging signs of improvement".
