Warriors defeat French Champions!

19 December 2016

There were some standout performances from #teamredsky athletes over the past weekend, making our performance of the week very difficult to decide!

Scott Meenagh was competing in his first World Cup Event as a Nordic Skier, after switching sports from Para-rowing recently. Scott finished in 16th position, a remarkable achievement in his first ever outing. This performance has earned Scott valuable qualification points in his quest for a Winter Paralympic Games spot in Pyeongchang in 2018. Scott is an inspiring individual and his drive to pursue Olympic ambition in a completely new sport is filling us with pride!

Our #teamredsky performance of the week however took place at Scotstoun stadium. It was another inspiring European night in Glasgow for the Warriors as they beat Racing 92 convincingly, 23-7 in front of a packed home crowd. Racing were European finalists last year and also Top 14 Champions. The Warriors played full of confidence and guile and #teamredsky members Zander Fagerson and Captain Jonny Gray were instrumental as they march closer to the knockout stages of the Champions Cup. Zander and Jonny have been in impeccable form this season and we can’t wait to see what the rest of the season brings!
