Scrum-half Chris Cusiter earned a penalty for Glasgow which Weir kicked to extend the visitors’ lead to 8-0.
Glasgow got a second try on 28 minutes through Fusaro. Weir converted to give Glasgow a 15-0 lead.
The Ospreys tried to get a positive attack going after the interval but were penalised in the Glasgow 22 and Webb was then yellow-carded which allowed Weir put over his second penalty as the Scots extended their lead to 18-0.
