Cardiff RFC discover Welsh/Scottish cross-border competition fixtures

Posted by

The fixtures for the end-of-season cross-border competition between Indigo Group Premiership and Fosroc Super Six sides have been announced.

The competition, between the top six semi-professional Welsh teams and the six semi-professional Scottish sides, will be played out across six weekends from late April to late May, with each entrant playing the six sides from the other country.

For Cardiff RFC this means three home and three away games against Scottish teams, starting on the weekend of 25th April at Watsonians Rugby Club, based in Edinburgh.

Another side from the Scottish capital, Boroughmuir Bears, visit the Arms Park the following week, before a trip back to Edinburgh for the Blue and Blacks will see them face Heriots.

On the weekend of May 16th there will be visitors from the west coast as the Ayrshire Bulls come to Cardiff, before the final two games sees Steve Law’s men travel to the Borders to play the Southern Knights, formerly known as Melrose, before welcoming Stirling County.

Exact details of the games and structure of the competition will be revealed closer to the time, but there are rivalries to be renewed for Cardiff RFC with trips to Heriots and Ayr appearing regularly on fixture lists down the years, while Watsonians were festive visitors for many seasons.

There has also been a previous fixture against Boroughmuir, but fixtures against Melrose (Southern Knights) and Stirling will be new for the Blue and Blacks.
