Glasgow Warriors A v Stirling Wolves | Update

Glasgow Warriors’ A-team will not be able to fulfil Friday’s (3 May) FOSROC Super Series Sprint fixture against Stirling Wolves at Bridgehaugh.

This is due to an insufficient number of front row players being available to play the game.

The club is currently managing an extensive injury list. This includes key front row players from across the squad, including from the academy, who would have been involved in Friday’s fixture.

Also, as a matter of priority, Glasgow Warriors has a responsibility to protect players who will be travelling to South Africa for Rounds 16 and 17 of the BKT United Rugby Championship.

The club has sought support from Premiership clubs and Scotland U20 in attempts to keep the game on. Unfortunately, not enough cover can be made available to allow the match to go ahead safely.

The process of a non-fulfilled fixture will now be carried out by Scottish Rugby, per the 2024 FOSORC Super Series Sprint Tournament Rules.

At this time, Glasgow Warriors intends to play the last of their three A-team games on Friday 24 May against Ayrshire Bulls at Millbrae in Ayr.

Glasgow Warriors Manging Director, Al Kellock, said: “We’re 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. Yet we 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.”
