Glasgow forward Adam Ashe is excited by the team’s potential as they continue to learn under Dave Rennie.

The Warriors have made an encouraging start to the season under their new head coach from New Zealand, winning all three of their Guinness PRO14 matches.

However, Ashe admits they have not yet hit their straps after edging past Cardiff by just a single point last week, but is encouraged by the development under former Chiefs man Rennie.

“I don’t think we have clicked yet, but you can certainly see that we’re fit,” he said.

“There’s still quite a few mistakes in our game, which is part of the transitional period, but I do think that when things do click we will be scoring some fantastic tries and playing some end-to-end rugby.

“It’s a great sign that we’re still managing to win games and we’re finding a way to win even if we’re not playing that well on the day.

“I think it’s promising of what’s to come in the future.

“We’re playing a slightly different game plan, have new players and new coaches coming in so naturally that will take a little bit of time to click but when it does, it will be exciting.”

Their next test comes against Munster, with the two set for an early top-of-the-table clash with the Irish side at the summit by virtue of an extra bonus point.

Peter O’Mahony’s men travel to Scotstoun on Sunday night and Ashe is hopeful home advantage can play a role so early in the season.

“It’s going to be a big one, but a good one to have at home near the start of the season,” the back-row said.

“Munster are a stuffy team, physical; we know what they’re going to bring and at the same time we know it will take a massive effort from one to 23 to turn them over at the weekend.

“We’re looking forward to it.”
