The match takes place in the Capital on Friday, December 30, with a 7.35pm kick-off and a bumper crowd is expected for the deciding leg of world rugby’s oldest intercity derby, as both clubs celebrate the 150th anniversary of the first-ever meeting between the two sides at Burbank Park, Glasgow, on 23 November 1872. Both sides will be playing in commemorative 1872 strips in a tribute to the history of the fixture, with Edinburgh and Glasgow set to launch their one-off kits in the build-up to the traditional festive encounter at BT Murrayfield.

In time, Edinburgh will unveil its full list of internationalists and British & Irish Lions, before confirming the all-time and official head-to-head record against Glasgow Warriors – from match one on 23 November 1872 to last May’s emphatic victory over the Scotstoun club.Edinburgh head coach Mike Blair said: “December’s derby will be a special night and one that all Scottish rugby fans can get behind, no matter which side you support. It will be a hugely important fixture and one that will allow us to showcase what rugby means to this city and our supporting regions.”
