Warriors to play pre-season games against Ulster
Glasgow Warriors will take on Guinness PRO14 rivals Ulster as part of their preparations for the 2019/20 season, with the two sides set to meet in a brace of fixtures ahead of the new campaign.
Belfast’s Kingspan Stadium will host the first of the two ties on Saturday 7 September (kick-off 1.30pm), before the return fixture at Scotstoun seven days later (Saturday 14 September, kick-off 2.30pm).
The two games will provide Dave Rennie and his coaching team with a valuable opportunity to assess their squad ahead of the new Guinness PRO14 season.
The fixture on Saturday 14 September will be the first pre-season match played at Scotstoun since August 2014, when – despite a brace of tries from Niko Matawalu and DTH van der Merwe’s score – the Warriors found themselves edged out by a single point in a 24-23 defeat to Harlequins.
However, Glasgow’s last friendly match at Scotstoun saw them overpower the British Army in a comprehensive 71-0 victory in September 2015, Junior Bulumakau and Scott Cummings each recording two of the 10 Warriors tries on the night.
Keep an eye on the club’s channels over the next few weeks for ticketing information for the game at Scotstoun. Tickets for the game at Kingspan Stadium will go on sale at 10.00am on Wednesday 12 June via UlsterRugby.com/BuyTickets.
