NEWS | Varsity Cup winning teams to feature at Ospreys clash

Edinburgh supporters will have the chance to show their appreciation for the double Scottish Varsity winning teams from the University of Edinburgh at Saturday’s Guinness PRO14 match against Ospreys. 

The captains of both the men’s and ladies’ teams will be in The Huxley Clubhouse before the match for a quick Q&A about their successful trip to BT Murrayfield in September when they defeated their respective rivals from the University of St Andrew’s. Both the men’s and ladies’ teams will then do a lap of honour at half-time, showing off their prestigious silverware.

The men’s team stopped a run of four straight defeats in the historic fixture, whilst the women’s team maintained their unbeaten run in the contest. Saturday’s visit to Myreside gives Edinburgh supporters the chance to congratulate the student players.

The Scottish Varsity Matches have been contested by the University of Edinburgh and the University of St Andrews since the 1860’s, therefore laying claim to the ‘world’s oldest varsity match’.
