What’s On | The Famous Grouse Pre-Season Friendly
We’re now just a little more than two weeks’ away from facing Zebre Parma in The Famous Grouse Pre-Season Friendly on Saturday 30 September.
This is the first time we’ll run out at Scotstoun Stadium since playing Munster in the BKT United Rugby Championship quarter-final back in May.
It’s also your first opportunity to see our latest signings in action. Henco Venter who arrived from the Hollwoodbets Sharks, and Logan Trotter and Kyle Rowe who moved north from London Irish are all in contention to start.
On the day, gates will open at 4.30pm. The match then kicks off at 6pm. There is also the option to purchase tickets to watch the Rugby World Cup round three game between Scotland and Romania in Club KubeNet later in the evening.
