PRO14 fixtures announced for 2017/18 season

Richard Cockerill’s first competitive game in charge of Edinburgh Rugby will be an away clash against Cardiff Blues on Friday 1 September (kick-off 7.35pm) – live on BBC Wales.

The men in black and red will then welcome another Welsh side, Dragons, to Myreside in the opening home fixture of the season the following week (Friday 8 September).

Edinburgh’s first encounter with the new competition additions, Cheetah and Southern Kings, will come in back-to-back away fixtures on Friday 25 November and Friday 1 December, respectively.

The 1872 Cup readopts the traditional double-header during the festive period, with Edinburgh welcoming Glasgow to BT Murrayfield on Saturday 23 December (kick-off 5.10pm), before heading west for the second-leg at Scotstoun on Saturday 30 December (kick-off 3.15pm). The introduction of the conference structure for this year’s competition means the teams will meet again for a third showdown, to be hosted at BT Murrayfield on the final day of the regular league season.
