Lineen eyeing Amlin campaign

Glasgow head coach Sean Lineen is focused on securing a place in the Amlin Challenge Cup after seeing his side go down 23-16 in the Heineken Cup to Leinster.

The Warriors play Bath at The Rec next weekend knowing victory is a must if they are to keep their European ambitions alive this season in the second tier competition.

Lineen said: "We've got to make sure we go down there with the right mindset because Bath are a very good team. It's out of our control now. There are a couple of things that have to happen in a couple of the other groups for us to be involved in the Amlin."

On Sunday's defeat Lineen added: "Leinster are not the Heineken Cup champions for nothing.

"I thought we stood toe-to-toe with them for long periods of the game.

"One bit of class from (Rob) Kearney, try. We had two guys there, but he got the ball. That's just class."
