Southern Knights away game cancelled

Thursday 02 February 2023 Written by: Adam

The Kingston Park clash between the two sides will still go ahead on Saturday February 11 with a 1.30pm kick-off, helping to raise funds for My Name’5 Doddie.

A statement from Southern Knights said:

*The decision to postpone this week’s game was made after detailed discussions between the coaches of both teams, during which the Southern Knights flagged up their growing concern for the depth of the match-day squad they could select.*

*The difficulties were threefold in that as well as injuries to key players, a number of the squad have been selected to represent Scotland Under-20s this weekend.*

*The third difficulty relates to an existing agreement with newly signed players that they could continue to play for their ‘Clubs of Origin’ in any Premier/National League games. Due to re-arranged games this weekend a further four players have been released to play on this basis.*

*The decision to postpone the fixture has been a difficult one. However, as both clubs remain committed to retaining this double-header fixture in the calendar it was agreed it was better to postpone the game rather than risk harming the competitiveness required to have a great rugby match fitting of the man it celebrates. Both clubs are committed to having the game played pre-season 2023/24.*
