Northampton Saints come back from 15-0 down to record a bonus-point victory over Glasgow Warriors at Franklin's Gardens.

Northampton Saints staged a memorable comeback to overcome Glasgow Warriors 24-15 at Franklin's Gardens this afternoon.

Ken Pisi thought that he had given Northampton the lead midway through the opening half, however the video referee was unconvinced that the ball had been grounded legally.

Moments later, Josh Strauss rubbed salt into the hosts' wounds by powering over to mark his Heineken Cup debut with the game's opening try.

Sean Lamont then scored against his former club to give Glasgow a 15-0 lead with 12 minutes of the first half remaining.

George Pisi began the comeback on 38 minutes, touching down following a brilliant run by Samu Manoa.

Pisi doubled his tally in the dying seconds of the opening period, collecting a clever pass from his brother before grounding between the posts.

The turnaround was completed by a Stephen Myler try three minutes after the restart.

Vasily Artemyev then earned Northampton a bonus point when he crossed the line 10 minutes from time.
