FOSROC Super Series Sprint Round 3: Fixture update

FOSROC Super Series Sprint Round 3: Fixture update

Friday evenings FOSROC Super Series Sprint fixture between Stirling Wolves and Glasgow Warriors will not go ahead.

The match, scheduled for a 7:35pm kick-off and due to be broadcast on BBC ALBA, is unable to be played due Glasgow Warriors having an insufficient number of front row players to play the game.

The match between Boroughmuir Bears and Ayrshire Bulls, also scheduled to be played on Friday evening at 7:35pm, will now be broadcast live on BBC ALBA.

Glasgow Warriors are currently managing an extensive injury list, including key front row players from across the squad, including from the academy, who would have been involved in Friday’s fixture. They are also prioritising their round 16 and 17 fixtures of the BKT United Rugby Championship in South Africa over the next fortnight.

The process of a non-fulfilled fixture will now be carried out as per the 2024 FOSORC Super Series Sprint Tournament Rules. Glasgow Warriors do intend on playing the last of their A-team games in the Sprint Series against Ayrshire Bulls at Millbrae on Friday 24 May.

Glasgow Warriors Manging Director, Al Kellock, said: “We are disappointed not to be able to fulfil Friday’s A-team fixture. We have done everything within our power to try to get numbers available to play this match, but simply cannot get enough players available for it to go ahead safely. We are also at an extremely important time in our league season, therefore we must prioritise putting our best efforts into our progress in the league and maintaining our league position and bid for home play-offs.

“Thank you to Stirling Wolves for their understanding as we take this necessary decision.”
