Richie Gray ruins Stephen Donald debut with match winning try

It was a weekend of amazing finishes as Glasgow Warriors weren't be be outdone by Munster's herois at Thomond Park, as they came from behind to claim a dramatic 26-21 win over Bath at Firhill Stadium in Glasgow. 

Bath's Kiwi import Stephen Donald, fresh from winning the World Cup with the All Blacks, came on as a replacement and looked to have won the match with just over a minute left. His penalty kick took Bath into a two point lead, but Glasgow hadn't had their say just yet.

Outstanding Scotland second rower Richie Gray, who announced earlier in the week that he will be moving to Sale Sharks, took full advantage of a charge down on an attempted drop goal and charged over thanks to a favourable bounce that left Bath's Nick Abendanon with no chance.

"I'm delighted for Richie, a great try," said Warriors head coach Sean Lineen. "The drop goal was quite far away and it was a fortuitous bounce but I think Bath had been offside about four phases in a row and they got away with murder there. The guys never gave up."

Duncan Weir's attempted match winning drop kick resulted in a winning try for Gray, who was onside despite being in front of the kicker, thanks to the touch from a Bath hand.

"Duncan went for the drop goal, I saw there was a touch on it and it was the bounce of a rugby ball. Right place at the right time. The main focus was to give everything in a Warriors shirt while I'm still here. That is the focus for me and that's the way I'll always be," said Gray.

Below is video that includes Donald's kick, then the drama of the final few minutes.
