NEWS | Edinburgh to host Bath in pre-season

Edinburgh Rugby will host Aviva Premiership side Bath in the club’s only home pre-season friendly on Friday 17 August.

The venue for the match is still to be confirmed, but the fixture will see the return of former club captain Todd Blackadder – now Bath Director of Rugby – to the capital, who made 77 appearances for the club between 2001 and 2004.

Richard Cockerill’s side will then travel on the road for a second pre-season match, with information on this fixture set to be announced by the home club shortly.

Venue, ticketing details and kick-off times for both pre-season fixtures will be confirmed in due course.
