ALL domestic rugby matches in Scotland– including Glasgow Warriors’ pre-season friendly versus Ulster at Scotstoun tomorrow [Friday] night, Scotland Women’s World Cup warm-up match versus Spain on Sunday at the DAM Health Stadium, the Super6 contest between Southern Knights and Ayrshire Bulls on Saturday, and all club/school games in the National and Regional Leagues/Conferences – have been suspended as a mark of respect following the death earlier this evening of Queen Elizabeth.
However, a decision has not yet been made about Edinburgh’s pre-season match versus Benetton in Treviso, as that game is being hosted by a non-Commonwealth country.
“As a mark of respect, and to acknowledge the sad passing of Her Majesty The Queen, Scottish Rugby has decided to suspend all domestic competitive matches this weekend,” said a statement issued by the Scottish Rugby Union.
“The decision also includes Scotland’s Summer Test v Spain on Sunday and the Famous Grouse Pre-Season Challenge between Glasgow Warriors and Ulster on Friday evening.
“A decision on Edinburgh Rugby’s game in Italy against Treviso, also on Friday evening, will be made once further Government guidance is known”
