Horne boots Glasgow to victory

The unerring place-kicking of centre Peter Horne inspired Glasgow to an 18-3 win over Cardiff Blues and their fourth successive RaboDirect Pro12 victory

His six penalties saw the Warriors move up to third place in the table. Leigh Halfpenny, returning after a spell on the sidelines with an ankle injury, was able to put his team on the scoresheet with a penalty for offside.

Glasgow were reduced to 14 men late on when hooker Dougie Hall was yellow-carded for a professional foul, while Horne proved that he was only human when he drove a straightforward penalty wide of the posts.
