Glasgow to take on Edinburgh at Scotstoun on January 8

The second leg of the 1872 Cup will take on place on Friday 8 January (7.35pm kick-off) as Glasgow Warriors welcome Edinburgh to Scotstoun.

PRO14 Rugby has rescheduled the postponed Italian and Scottish derbies from Round 9 to occur next weekend in Round 11 in order to mitigate the risks currently posed by the pandemic.

Originally in Round 11, Benetton Rugby had been scheduled to travel to Glasgow Warriors on January 8 with Edinburgh Rugby due to play Zebre in Parma on January 9.

It is uncertain when the current restrictions placed on travel between the UK and Italy will be lifted and this poses a significant risk to the fixtures between these teams as previously planned.

This also ensures that all Round 11 games in the Guinness PRO14 require no international travel and teams will have greater control of their environments.

As a result, the Glasgow Warriors v Benetton and Zebre v Edinburgh games will be scheduled for another weekend in early 2021.
