Super6: Date set for competition's return and fixtures revealed

Scottish rugby’s FOSROC Super6 competition is to return next month.

Watsonians and Heriot's were the two top sides in Super6 when the season was suspended.

The part-time pro league which is designed to bridge the gap between amateur and professional rugby was launched in season 2019-20 but had to be suspended in March last year due to Covid. No winner was declared.

After a 15-month hiatus the tournament is to return on Friday 30 July subject to Scottish Government coronavirus guidelines.

The broadcaster is yet to be announced.
