Glasgow edge rivals Edinburgh

Moray Low took full advantage of Matt Scott's late yellow card to force the only try of a scrappy 17-12 win for Glasgow over Edinburgh in the RaboDirect Pro12.

The teams were locked at 9-9 when Scott threw Robert Harley to the ground in the 68th minute and Low emerged with the ball after a lineout to cross over the line. Duncan Weir and Scott Wight kicked four penalties between them for Warriors, with Phil Godman booting three penalties and a last-gasp drop goal to claim an Edinburgh bonus point.

The victory also ensured Glasgow retained the 1872 Cup with an aggregate victory over their rivals during the festive period.
