Glasgow boss Gregor Townsend lauded his charges for their win against Leicester Tigers but says they still have work to do. 

Glasgow beat Leicester 42-13 at Scotstoun Stadium on Friday, an incredible victory for the Scottish team. 

"Parts of the performance were outstanding, the forward pack in particular, the way they scrummed, the way they carried the ball, the way they defended the lineout drive. We drove well ourselves, we got penalties and our scrummage up against a very big pack was outstanding," Townsend told Sporting Life.

"The occasion was brilliant, the supporters were great. It was a brilliant night for our wingers and for Zander (Fagerson) to go up against two very good loosehead props, he was really controlled and strong.

"It was great to see the players play well but there's a bit of work to do and it's mainly my coaching because there were a few attack plays that didn't work well."
