Super6: Date set for competition's return and fixtures revealed
Scottish rugby’s FOSROC Super6 competition is to return next month.
The part-time pro league which is designed to bridge the gap between amateur and professional rugby was launched in season 2019-20 but had to be suspended in March last year due to Covid. No winner was declared.
After a 15-month hiatus the tournament is to return on Friday 30 July subject to Scottish Government coronavirus guidelines.
The first match of the new season will see Boroughmuir Bears host Heriot’s Rugby at Meggetland. The following day Stirling County will take on Southern Knights at home and on Sunday 1 August Ayrshire Bulls will host Watsonians Rugby in the first live TV game of the tournament. The broadcaster is yet to be announced.
