"Still more to come" claims Glasgow Caledonian's coach
November 27, 1999
Reds coach Richie Dixon hailed his side's European Cup performance against Leinster in atrocious conditions and claimed "there is still more to come."
"The 14 points at the end took the gloss off it but that is a reminder to us that when teams are dead you bury them," said Dixon. "The handling in those conditions for Tommy's try was superb. There is nothing better than watching running rugby like that.
"I left Roland Reid on the open side because he was fitting into the pattern and I think we have seen tonight he might become a player. That might mean an international player, but that is what they should all be aiming for."
Dixon was also encouraged by a crowd of just over 2,000 which cheered the team on to victory. "They really got behind us and I'm sure they will not see anything like this at club level. Hopefully, they will go home and tell their friends and they will come along
