GLASGOW WARRIORS will now face Ayrshire Bulls in Inverness this Friday night, after their scheduled pre-season match versus Worcester Warriors was called off earlier today due to a financial crisis at the Premiership club.

The Bulls’ Super6 fixture against the Southern Knights, originally scheduled for this weekend, will now be played on Saturday 10th September.

Glasgow Warriors will name their team for the match tomorrow and will be continuing their planned community activity across the Highlands in the run-up to the game.

“We are delighted that Ayrshire Bulls are able to help us fulfill Friday night’s fixture in Inverness,” said Glasgow Warriors Managing Director, Al Kellock. “We have a huge amount of community activity planned in the Highlands over the next few days, and to be able to host a fixture at the Caledonian Stadium as the culmination of the week is fantastic.

“I’d like to thank Ayrshire Bulls, Southern Knights and Scottish Rugby for the flexibility they have shown across the board in helping us to make this fixture happen.

“We’re all excited to see our new signings in action, as well as watch Franco Smith take charge of the team for the first time, as part of a celebration of rugby in the Highlands and as part of Highland RFC’s centenary.”

Tickets and car parking purchased for the original fixture in Inverness will remain valid. Any supporters wishing a refund instead should request this in writing to ticket.centre@sru.org.uk by midday on Friday 2 September.

  1. Can anyone tell me the live score of WARRIORS V AYSHIRE BULLS? The Glasgow match centre doesn’t seem to be functioning.

  2. I would doubt many academy players would be playing against seasoned, full time pro’s including a few internationals.
    It’s not a Globetrotters exhibition game from the 1960’s.

  3. Would expect the Bulls to be cohesive and competitive. Will be interesting to see how quickly Glasgow get in to shape and if they can dominate them.

  4. Sad for Highland rugby and the travelling supporters that the Worcester game is off.
    However, it’s good that Ayrshire Bulls have been able to step in at this late stage.
    It will be interesting to see how an up and running super 6 amateur team go against a ring rusty pro team under newly arrived leadership.

    • Super 6 aren’t amateurs behave ! What would be interesting is how many academy players are on the park given that’s what s6 was supposed to be all about. If I had ten pence spare I’d wager few to none of the lads who played shogun youth club rugby four years ago will get a ball in their hand
