McGeechan lauds forwards

Bath rugby director Sir Ian McGeechan saluted a "tremendous" forward effort after his front five's dominance laid the foundations for their 23-18 Heineken Cup victory over Glasgow at The Rec.

Bath's Pool Three campaign has proved to be a disappointment, with back-to-back defeats to Leinster effectively ending their European aspirations before Christmas, but they at least managed to finish the pool on a high as two late Olly Barkley penalties helped them stave off a brave Glasgow fightback.
