  • That is that. Castres win by two points and that moves them second in the Pool, three points behind Ulster. Glasgow can walk away with their heads held high though as they put everything on the line. Next up we have Saracens against Munster from Vicarage Road.

  • He's hit the post! What drama at Stade Pierre-Antoine.

  • Well, what about this?! Castres have been penalised at scrum time (it looked like Wihongi was penalised) so Jackson will step up from 35 metres out. Stay right there for this.

  • KIRKPATRICK CONVERSION! 10-8! A simple two points.

  • CABALLERO TRY! 8-8! The rolling maul finally works for Castres!

  • MCGUIGAN YELLOW! Glasgow are down to thirteen now after a late tackle from the replacement sees him go to the bin. Castres ball 20 metres out now then.

  • How did Glasgow keep Castres out there? Outstanding from Matawalu again as he pounced on loose ball at the tail which led to the Warriors getting out and up to halfway.

  • Castres scrum five metres out.

  • The hosts are lucky to still have fifteen though as, soon after, Diarra takes a clear stamp on the head of Low - that will be looked at by the citing commissioner for sure.

  • RYDER YELLOW! Bad news for Glasgow as second-row Ryder has been sent to the bin for taking out Diarra at a line-out. Can Glasgow cope with fourteen?

  • How are Glasgow holding on here? Castres seem to have thrown everything at them but still they hold them out on their own line. It's another home line-out though after a high shot from Harley allows Kirkpatrick to push his side up to the Warriors' 22. Fifteen minutes left.

  • Here come the Glasgow substitutes as Morrison and Campbell are on. They will have some defending to do from the outset as tempers start to boil over in the sunshine.

  • Castres now through on Sanchou and Taumoepeau while Glasgow still keep the same line-up out there, barring Harley of course who came on for Barclay in the first-half.

  • Matawalu has been outstanding today as this time he saves his side with a big hit on Kirkpatrick after the New Zealand centre/fly-half had broken the line on halfway.

  • It doesn't work and in fact it almost results in Matawalu scoring from halfway. The scrum-half tapped quickly and raced 48 metres before being hauled down by Garvey. He lost the ball in the tackle but what about that from the Fijian as he almost scored against the run of play.

  • Castres are throwing the kitchen sink at the Warriors here but still the Scots stand firm and again win a relieving penalty. Castres throw on their bench in response as Kirkpatrick, Diarra, Wihongi and Mach are sent on for Coetzee, Wannenburg, Tales and Bonello.

  • Excellent from Gordon Reid there as he pounces on another Castres line-out once it lands to win his side a much-needed relieving penalty. His team-mates thank him for it.

  • Eddie does anything but as he goes off his feet at ruck time. Castres turn down the three though and instead go for the corner. They want to drive over the line here.

  • Still Castres knock on the door though. Glasgow need to stand tall.

  • Castres have just butchered a chance - following good work from Garvey down the right wing - as another mistake in recycled ball results in a spillage. One has to credit the character in defence being shown by the Warriors though as they are fighting for everything.
