This evening’s European Challenge Cup Round 3 match against London Irish (kick-off 7.35pm) has been moved to the international pitch at BT Murrayfield.

Inspections of the Myreside surface, which has had protection in place all week, were carried out on Friday evening and Saturday morning.

In consultation with the match officials and owing to freezing temperatures, with a further drop expected later today, it was decided the game should be moved to guarantee it goes ahead as planned. The club also felt it important that making an early decision would help assist supporters in adjusting their travel plans accordingly.

Undersoil heating has been on at BT Murrayfield as part of the club’s contingency plan, and we are fortunate to have such a great a facility to ensure the match goes ahead this evening.

All existing match tickets are valid and tickets continue to be available for purchase online up until kick-off. Further information will be issued throughout the day – stay up to date with the latest developments at and across our social media channels.
