NEWS | Stade Francais fixture moved to BT Murrayfield

Friday night’s crucial European Challenge Cup Pool 4 fixture against Stade Francais (kick-off 7.35pm) has been moved to BT Murrayfield to allow the pitch at Myreside further time to recover.

Pitch protection work has been ongoing at Myreside following last weekend’s 37-7 win over Southern Kings. However, due to the extra-ordinary weather circumstances over the past week and during the match against the Southern Kings itself, it has been decided the pitch needs further time to sufficiently recover.

This weekend’s match presents an opportunity to secure a place in the quarter-finals, so after relevant consultation, it was agreed that the move to BT Murrayfield provided the best possible surface on which to perform.

Friday night’s match marks a rematch of last season’s European Challenge Cup clash in which 14-man Edinburgh battled back from 20-3 down to eventually defeat the Parisian outfit 28-23.
