THE second season of Super6 is to commence on 30th July, some 15-months after the inaugural campaign was brought to a premature close by the Covid pandemic.
As in the first year of the tournament, the campaign will kick-off at Meggetland on a Friday night, although this time Boroughmuir Bears will host city rivals Heriot’s Rugby, with Stirling County welcoming Southern Knights to Bridgehaugh the following day, and Ayrshire Bulls hosting Watsonians on Sunday 1st July in the first live TV game of the tournament (although the TV broadcaster for this year’s tournament is yet to be announced).
Kick-off times will be confirmed ahead of the competition beginning at the end of July.
“We are delighted that the FOSROC Super6 will be restarting at the end of July after an understandable, but frustrating pause due to Covid,” said Scottish Rugby’s Director of High Performance Jim Mallinder.
“The FOSROC Super6 is the bridge for players to make their way from the club to the professional game, as we’ve seen by the number who have already progressed through to Edinburgh, Glasgow and now the Scotland summer tour squad.
“The tournament is being played this season in its originally intended slot from July through to October with the hope better conditions will provide an opportunity for teams to play to a high standard and continue to develop the players and coaches involved.
“I’m looking forward to seeing the competition get underway and would like to wish everyone involved well in the months ahead and extend my thanks for all their hard work to prepare for the second season in difficult circumstances.”
