Rugby Union: Newport fall at home; NEWPORT 6 GLASGOW 27.

NEWPORT'S hopes of a title challenge nose-dived with this shock defeat.

Fraser Stott went over for Glasgow and outside half Tommy Hayes converted.

Hayes hit the post with a 19th-minute penalty and got their first points with a Howarth penalty.

Peter Buxton's surging burst had Glasgow in trouble. Minutes later Howarth slotted his second penalty.

Back came Glasgow with a touchline run and try from James McLaren, Hayes converting. Then Jon Stuart beat Newport's defence for an unconverted try and a 13-point half-time lead.

Newport skipper and No. 8 Gary Teichmann produced a run to put Glasgow under pressure, but Hayes stretched the visitors' lead with a drop goal. Glasgow clinched their win with a 74th-minute unconverted try from Barry Irving.
