Cross Border fixtures for 2020

Cardiff will begin the new Cross Border competition with a trip to Watsonians in April. The competition will feature last season’s top six Indigo Group Premiership teams from Wales, along with the Fosroc Super6 teams. There will be six rounds of competition, with each team hosting three games on home turf and all sides playing each other once.

The Blue & Blacks will then play the Boroughmuir at the Arms Park followed by away trips to Heriots and the Southern Knights (Melrose). Between those games is a home tie with Ayr and finishing the competition with a home game against Stirling.

Cardiff have a history of matches against Ayr and Heriots, a side that the Blue & Blacks used to play pre a Wales Scotland game. It will be the first meeting though with sides from Melrose and Stirling and only the second with Boroughmuir.

On the announcement Fosroc Super6 Tournament Director Stephen Gemmell said, “We’re delighted to be able to announce these fixtures alongside the WRU. The tournament will provide our six teams with quality opposition against their experienced Welsh counterparts and will make for some intense, physical and, I am sure, entertaining rugby.

“Our clubs have enjoyed similar cross border matches in the old B&I Cup and these new fixtures are a great addition to our Super6 calendar and will provide a significant challenge for the players and coaches of all of our teams.”
