Ali Carberry In true Warriors style we started off cautiously & upped our game as the night went on! "Fear the Beer!" Thanks very much to all the committee for organising such a nice event & to all the players for coming along & being as hopeless as us at the rugby questions! X

Christine Ferguson Great night, thanks for all the hard work you put in to make it a success. Quite relieved that the players were not great at the questions either! Thanks to all of them for their company!

Carol Thomas It was a great night. The old brain was working overtime but didn't quite get there. We'll need to swot up for next year. Great organisation & the food was great too.

Ross Currie It was a great night

Thanks to all the committee for arranging and to all the Glasgow Warriors players who attended tonight

Cheryl Watson Great night, was so glad I'm not the only one that sucked at the rugby questions. Massive thanks to the committee for arranging a fantastic night and thanks to all the players that came along.

The bomb squad & the pussycat dolls will win one day, OK one round then? Maybe, hopefully!!

Robert Williamson 2nd place for the Amazin 6. best place in 4 years.

Thanks to all the committee!

Warriors v Saints


The XVIth Warrior would like to welcome everyone back to Scotstoun for what is now our first European match of the season! We send our deepest condolences and best wishes to all of those affected by the tragedies of the last week. We have been in contact with the Racing 92 supporters to ask them to pass on our thoughts to all in Paris. Thanks to everyone who travelled to Paris this weekend, we're both relieved and happy to see everyone return safely. We hope that many of you will be able to attend the rescheduled match, date still to be confirmed.

Next week at Scotstoun, we will be having our annual Kilt Day to celebrate St Andrew's Day! Come in your best tartan and watch the Warriors play Benetton Treviso in the Pro12.

Sooner than that, we look forward to welcoming those who have booked places to the XVIth Warrior pub quiz next Tuesday. We hope you've all been studying!
