GLASGOW WARRIORS’ postponed URC clash against Emirates Lions in Johannesburg has been rescheduled to Saturday 25th February, with a 2.10pm [GMT] kick-off time. This is the day before Scotland’s Six Nations round three match against France in Paris.

The game was originally supposed to be played in October but had to be postponed due to a virus running through the Warriors camp. The Cell C Sharks versus Ulster match, which suffered the same fate that weekend, has also been moved to 25th February.

For Warriors, the new match date is sandwiched between the team’s URC round 14 home match against Ulster on the evening of Friday 17th February and their round 15 match at home to Parma on Friday 3rd March.

  1. Maybe Alan Dell will have recovered, after almost a full season out with a calf injury?
    He is proving to be almost as good a signing as Walter Fafita.

  2. That could make a mess of the run-in. With a reduced squad, some players will have to make the long trip and still turn out against Zebre. Hopefully we’ll get some players back off the injured list soon to provide extra depth.
