Edinburgh will play St. Andrews in the Royal Bank of Scotland Scottish Rugby Varsity Match at BT Murrayfield stadium on Saturday 24 September.

Rivalry renewed

The annual encounter between the two universities was first staged in the 1860s.

Last year, the contest took place at BT Murrayfield for the first time, attracting a crowd of almost 10,000.

St Andrews won the men’s match 27-26, courtesy of a dramatic touchline conversion in the final act of the game, while Edinburgh triumphed in the women’s game, 36-7.
