THE PREDICTION

Glasgow Warriors won three of their last four Pro14 matches to finish the season in fourth place of Conference A and, like Cardiff Blues in B, will now await the news for next season’s Champions Cup format. In the meantime, the Warriors travel to Montpellier off the back of a bonus-point 46-25 victory over lowly Benetton but this will be a much tougher test. Montpellier is already renowned as a tough place to play away and the French Top 14 side just beat the league leaders 16-29 on Saturday to make it three wins in a row. Glasgow’s recent efforts have been found wanting against the tougher sides and Montpellier should be able to keep that winning feeling by covering -6 here.
