Edinburgh v Glasgow
Edinburgh Rugby host Glasgow Warriors at BT Murrayfield on Saturday 21 May, kick-off 6.30pm for one of the most highly anticipated
1872 Cup derbies in the professional era, as the two sides go
head-to-head for much more than intercity bragging rights on the final
day of the regular URC season.
The 1872 Cup – The second and deciding leg of the intercity derby will determine who claims the trophy. The Warriors lead 30-17 on aggregate and will retain the cup if Edinburgh do not win by a margin of 14 points, or if the aggregate scores are level (as holders Glasgow would retain the trophy).
Scottish x Italian Shield and Champions Cup qualification – This is a true ‘winner takes all’ clash as the victor will top the Scottish x Italian Shield and thus secure automatic Champions Cup Qualification. Whoever loses will finish in eight place – qualifying them into the Challenge Cup in 2022/23.
Quarter-Final seeding – Both sides have already qualified for the URC Playoffs however the loser of this intercity decider will finish in eighth place and thus face an away Quarter-Final to table-toppers Leinster on w/o 4 June. Victory for either side could see them move up to sixth place where they’ll face an away trip to either Ireland or South Africa.
