Kick-off times confirmed for Edinburgh derbies
The Guinness PRO14 has confirmed the dates and kick-off times for next month’s double-header with Edinburgh at BT Murrayfield, as the countdown to rugby’s return continues.
Glasgow Warriors will return to action on Saturday 22 August for round 15 of the shortened 2019/20 Guinness PRO14, five months after their previous run-out in the competition.
The first of two back-to-back meetings with Edinburgh, the Warrior Nation will be able to watch the match live on Premier Sports with kick-off at 5pm.
Danny Wilson’s men will then be the designated home side for the second clash, as Glasgow Warriors play their first ‘home’ clash in the capital since 2016.
The match will kick-off at 7.35pm on Friday 28 August, with supporters once again able to watch live on Premier Sports.
Reacting to the news, Glasgow Warriors Head Coach Danny Wilson said: “We’re looking forward to these games against Edinburgh. Scottish derbies are the types of games we want be involved in.
“We entered into phase two of training this week. It’s been great to have the boys back and to start introducing a ball into training.
“We still mathematically have an opportunity to qualify for the semi-finals and we will be going into these games with the goal of doing just that.
“It’ll be great to get back out there and playing rugby.”
