Wilson claims brace in Glasgow victory

Glasgow maintained their charge for the play-off places in the RaboDirect Pro12 with a scintillating 31-3 home victory over a shellshocked Cardiff Blues side at Firhill Arena.

A brace from Ryan Wilson and further tries from Chris Fusaro and Colin Shaw also secured a vital bonus point, with the rest of the hosts' points coming from the respective right boots of Duncan Weir and Ruaridh Jackson.

In reply, a Cardiff side littered with international stars could only muster one Leigh Halfpenny penalty, as the Warriors continued their impressive home form in emphatic style.

The hosts suffered an early blow when Graeme Morrison was forced to leave the field as early as the third minute, the Scotland international centre crumbling awkwardly under a forceful tackle in midfield.
