Super 6 Cross Border Announcement

27/06/2019


SCOTTISH RUGBY AND WRU CONFIRM

NEW CROSS-BORDER TEAMS


Scottish Rugby and the Welsh Rugby Union have confirmed details of the planned cross-border element of the Super 6 competition, which begins in November 2019.

The new top tier of Scottish domestic rugby will feature Ayr, Boroughmuir, Heriot's, Melrose, Stirling County and Watsonian FC after they were awarded places in the competition following an open application process in 2018.


Super 6 kicks off its inaugural domestic season, which is contested over 12 rounds, on the weekend of 9th November 2019 and concludes with the final on 28th March 2020.

A key aspect of the new Super6 concept was to see Scotland's Super6 teams compete against clubs of a similar level beyond their own borders to test both players and coaches in a different competitive environment.


The partnership with the Welsh Rugby Union will see teams from the newly named Indigo Group Premiership 2018/19 season play on consecutive weekends, against Scottish Rugby's Super6 teams starting in mid-April 2020.

The confirmed teams from Wales are the top six placed teams from last season, Merthyr, Cardiff, Pontypridd, Llandovery, Ebbw Vale and Aberavon.
