Glasgow - The Glasgow Warriors thumped the Southern Kings in their PRO14 encounter at the Scotstoun Stadium on Friday night.

The Scottish side won 43-13, after leading 19-6 at half-time.

The hosts ran in seven tries against a hapless Kings outfit, who managed only one try themselves.

It was unbeaten Glasgow’s seventh win in a row in the competition and they sit handsomely atop the Conference A standings with 33 points.

The Kings, on the other hand, have lost all seven of their games and bring up the rear in Conference B with zero points.

In next weekend’s action, the Kings host Irish club Ulster in Port Elizabeth (Saturday, November 4), while the Warriors host Ireland’s Leinster in Glasgow (Friday, November 2).
