McCrea Financial Services March Warrior of the Month Shortlist Revealed

Sebastien Cancelliere

Argentina international Cancelliere had a breakout month at Glasgow Warriors throughout March, showcasing his electric pace and footwork on the wing for Wilson’s men.

A super turnover and no-look pass put Scotstoun back on their feet in the triumph over Edinburgh, as Cancelliere dispatched Josh McKay for a sensational score past Warrior Nation.

The flier then recorded his first two tries in Glasgow colors a week later at Arms Park, producing a sublime finish 40 yards out after a break from Kyle Steyn before netting a 65-yard interception to head home intact for his second .

Jamie Dobie

Featured in all three matches in March, Dobie continues to belie his age and turn in one composed performance after another for the Warriors.

The scrum-half’s speed of serve and game intelligence kept defenses on their toes throughout the month, with the 20-year-old starting against the Scarlets and Edinburgh.

Indeed, the quality of his performance at Scotstoun was such that the number nine was rewarded with the Player of the Match award, with Premier Sports’ team of pundits hailing his overall impact on the proceedings.

Murphy Walker

Hot off the heels of signing his first professional contract with the Glasgow Warriors earlier this season, former Scotland Under-20 stalwart Walker turned heads across the URC in March with a string of impressive performances at the front, while showing its versatility in the front row.

An early introduction to Llanelli did not faze the former Dundee Eagle, with the 21-year-old playing just over 70 minutes rested and acquitting himself well in the park.

Walker then raced past Dobie for player of the match honors against Edinburgh, putting on a superb display on his first start in professional rugby to play 75 minutes tight-headed.

Scott Cummings

Row two Cummings returned to action in fine form in March, with his set-piece presence and dynamic ball carrying a prized weapon in Glasgow’s arsenal.

His partnership with Richie Gray helped the home side disrupt many Edinburgh line-ups on their way to victory at Scotstoun, before doing the same against Cardiff eight days later.

Only Gray and Ryan Wilson have stolen more lineups for the Warriors than Cummings so far this season, underscoring his importance to Glasgow’s set-piece.
