Edinburgh to face London Scottish and Ospreys in pre-season
Edinburgh’s pre-season opponents have today been confirmed with London Scottish and Ospreys both set to visit BT Murrayfield ahead of the 2019/20 campaign.
The capital side will face English Championship outfit, London Scottish, on Saturday 31 August before taking on Guinness PRO14 rivals Ospreys a fortnight later on Saturday 14 September, with both matches taking place at BT Murrayfield.
Both fixtures will be included in the 2019/20 Season Ticket Membership, while further ticketing information and kick-off time details for each match will be shared in the coming weeks.
The warm-up fixtures give Head Coach Richard Cockerill and his coaching staff the perfect opportunity to test out their squad against two sides familiar to the capital side's supporters.
London Scottish return north of the border after lifting the Melrose Sevens’ Ladies Cup earlier this year, while the Exiles face capital opposition for the second consecutive pre-season after defeating Watsonians at Myreside last August.
Edinburgh opened the 2018/19 campaign against Ospreys at the Liberty Stadium last August, while the Welsh side suffered defeat on their last visit to the capital where Magnus Bradbury grabbed the bonus-point securing score in a 37-10 victory at Myreside in November 2017.
The back-to-back warm-up fixtures see Edinburgh’s pre-season preparations return to BT Murrayfield for the first time in seven years, with Northampton Saints the last team to visit the national stadium for a friendly in August 2012.
