Glasgow head coach Gregor Townsend was delighted with his side for how they came from behind to beat Treviso 13-6 at Scotstoun Stadium on Friday.

The Warriors were trailing 3-6 for a long period of the PRO12 game as it looked as though a shock result might be on the cards for Treviso.

But the reigning champions bounced back late on with a try from Adam Ashe that helped to secure a victory that keeps them near to the top.

"I'm delighted because we were trailing for a long time," Townsend told the BBC following the hard-fought win over a spirited Italian side.

"Fair play to Treviso, they came with a very specific game plan, looked after the ball very well in the first half, we didn't get to see it that often."

He added: "I think the weather conditions and the opposition were the factors in how we maybe didn't play as well as we'd set out to.

"It was a night for ball carries and defending, and players really stepped up there. It wasn't a night for those passes across the field and offloads, but I thought the pack played very well.

"I thought the subs, both backs and forwards, made a big impact. It's quite tough when you come into a game when it's cold and wet but they did very well."
