  1. And relax...

    FT: Glasgow Warriors 20-16 Edinburgh

    So, it's victory for Glasgow - and how Dave Rennie's men needed it. They're up to within two points of third-placed Cheetahs in Pro14 Conference A, and have taken the first step towards winning back the 1872 Cup.

    Edinburgh looked to have snatched it when Blair Kinghorn gamboled over, but George Turner's late, late try ensures Warriors a merry Christmas.

    Richard Cockerill's side remain third in Conference B, a point behind second-placed Connacht, and will have the chance to wreak revenge on their inter-city rivals at Murrayfield in seven days' time.

    I will be back on this very desk for that one, and I hope I'll have the pleasure of your company again. For now, though, enjoy the rest of your weekend, and have a wonderful Christmas. Goodnight.

  2. 'We want to hunt'

    FT: Glasgow Warriors 20-16 Edinburgh

    Glasgow Warriors head coach Dave Rennie on BBC Radio Scotland: "I know there have been question marks around our form but we are creating opportunities, we just haven’t been clinical enough. So it was good to put a couple away today. It’s hurt us in Europe, we’ve got to make sure we can take confidence from this and build from it.

    "It was on the back of a really physical performance, defensively we were great, really quick off the line. On attack, we carried and cleaned aggressively and generated quick ball that put them under pressure.

    "Our counter-ruck was excellent, we want to hunt, but referees aren’t rewarding that very often, so sometimes you’ve got to take space, and Zander Fagerson was the instigator of that. I thought he was outstanding."

  3. Glasgow learning to win ugly

    Colin Gregor

    Former Scotland Sevens captain on BBC Radio Scotland

    Quote Message: I think Glasgow are learning how to win games in a different way. They aren't scoring as many points so they have to be more robust defensively. The lead that Zander Fagerson set - I think he was excellent - in shutting Edinburgh down was fantastic. There were moments of magic from Glasgow but they were few and far between.
  4. Jones savours perfect Christmas present

    FT: Glasgow Warriors 20-16 Edinburgh

    Glasgow centre Huw Jones is looking forward to a happy Christmas with that 1872 Cup opener won and done.

    “It feels incredible to come out of this one with a win, especially as we have lost a couple of tight games this season," the Scotland midfielder said. "And especially in a big derby game just before Christmas. We can enjoy a couple of days off now.

    “They are a quality team and our discipline wasn’t the best; we gave them some easy outs and let them into our half quite a few times. But to hold out at the end was a good feeling.”

  5. Post update

    FT: Glagow Warriors 20-16 Edinburgh

    More from Richard Cockerill: "It'll be interesting to watch it again and see what went on. Five yellow cards is mayhem across the board.

    "It was a stodgy game at the start, very tight and ordinary. We managed to get some ball and look after it for a while. We were winning the penalty count, and Bill Mata goes to the bin almost immediately. We want to have safety for our players. It hurt us desperately.

    "In the end, you get what you deserve. We'll take the point and gather ourselves together for next week."

  6. 'It was an accident'

    FT: Glasgow 20-16 Edinburgh

    Edinburgh head coach Richard Cockerill reckons Stuart McInally should not have been sin-binned for his high shot on Fraser Brown. The Edinburgh hooker saw yellow after catching the head of his opposite man, who was falling rapidly having been hit low by another visiting player.

    Speaking to BBC Radio Scotland, Cockerill said: "There was contact but no intent from McInally. It was an accident. You don't want players getting whacked in the head and having to leave the field on either side.

    "I've never seen so many cards for actually quite a clean game, really."

  7. 'It just got away from us'

    FT: Glasgow Warriors 20-16 Edinburgh

    Edinburgh wing Darcy Graham: “It just got away from us at the end. We had parity with them the whole game but they took their chances very well in the end, so fair play to them. But luckily we get to put it right next week. We’ll get our review done on Monday, enjoy a couple of days off and then come back in on Thursday and get going again.”

  10. 'A bizarre game of rugby'

    FT: Glasgow Warriors 20-16 Edinburgh

    Tom English

    BBC Scotland's chief sports writer

    Quote Message: Huw Jones came in to the game hungry for sure. It was a bizarre game and for the first hour it was rubbish. Twenty-five penalties in the match and five yellow cards. Try and make sense of that. Fair play to Glasgow, they were fighting against themselves tonight. The Adam Hastings conversion of George Turner's try was utterly crucial to the game.

    Quote Message: It was cagey in the first 60 minutes. They were pretty even. I'm not sure Glasgow were the better team, I think they got a bit of luck.
  12. What does that mean for the tables?

    FT: Glasgow Warriors 20-16 Edinburgh

    Boy, Glasgow needed that. It's been a while since the Scotstoun crowd have dined on the sweet fare of a rousing victory. No better time to get one than against their fearsome rivals.

    Warriors are still outside the play-off spots in Pro14 Conference A, but move within two points of third-placed Cheetahs, who have a game in hand.

    Edinburgh do pick up a losing bonus point and stay third in Conference B, a point shy of Connacht and five adrift of leaders Munster.

  13. Glasgow will savour important win

    FT: Glasgow Warriors 20-16 Edinburgh

    Colin Gregor

    Former Scotland Sevens captain on BBC Radio Scotland

    Quote Message: The game exploded in to life in the last 15 minutes. Some really high-quality scores. Glasgow got on the front foot, they competed at the 5m line-out at the end, not allowing Edinburgh to win clean ball. What a memorable victory for Glasgow and an important one for them in the grand scheme of the season.
  14. Full-time Glasgow Warriors 20-16 Edinburgh

    And breathe. After some of the dullest 65 minutes of rugby you're likely to see, the final 15 delivered fractious drama, end-to-end fare and three fine tries.

    We had five - yes, five - sin-binnings, all of them well-judged by referee Ben Blain, and some monumental performers in the packs, particularly from Zander Fagerson.

    In the end, the giant tight-head's turnover seals the victory, just as it looks like Edinburgh might steal the win.

  15. Penalty Glasgow!!!

    Glasgow 20-16 Edinburgh

    That's it! Zander Fagerson, the immense tight-head prop, makes a match-winning turnover. Glasgow have clung on for a mental victory.

  16. Post update

    Glasgow Warriors 20-16 Edinburgh

    It's all on this. It's Edinburgh hammering at the Glasgow line. One missed tackle, one dropped pass, one infringement, and it's all over. What does this crazy showdown have in store for us now?

  17. Surely not...

    Glasgow Warriors 20-16 Edinburgh

    Oh my goodness. Glasgow can't see out the final two minutes. It's an Edinburgh counter-ruck to end all counter-rucks and they have a penalty.

    Kinghorn puts it right into the corner. Line-out Edinburgh. The clock is red. An incredible finale to this derby-day bedlam

  18. Post update

    Glasgow Warriors 20-16 Edinburgh

    The action isn't done there. Darcy Graham zips and slaloms towards the Glasgow 22... but the home players steam into the breakdown and win a huge turnover.

    Two minutes left. Glasgow need to keep the ball and then hoof it into the stands. What a mental last 15 minutes we've had.

    Quote Message: It's a big statement. Edinburgh pride themselves on their physicality and Glasgow are going in and challenging them from that position.
  20. Converted try Glasgow Warriors 20-16 Edinburgh

    George Turner

    Ruthless. Glasgow seize back the lead barely five minutes after losing it. This is nuts.

    Virtually the entire Glasgow team pile into the driving maul and hooker George Turner is the man in possession when it marches inexorably over the line.

    Crucially, Adam Hastings nails the touchline conversion. A penalty or drop-goal won't do for Edinburgh now. They need a try in the final three minutes.
