Here is how some of Glasgow and Edinburgh’s key stats stack up against each other (and the rest of the PRO14).
1,282 – previous PRO14 appearances by the Warriors’ 23 – almost 350 more than the Edinburgh side.
It’s the most wonderful time of the year. A feast of rugby awaits fans of the Scottish pro teams as they look forward to December’s derby matches. The 1872 Cup may be a relatively recent creation but it epitomises a rivalry that stretches back over 140 years.
101,974 – total attendance for Glasgow’ home matches this season. The first time in the club’s history this number has reached 6 figures.
What does success look like for Edinburgh in the second half of the Pro 12 season?
39 – the number of Scottish qualified players on show between the 2 squads, with 30 of them already having been capped.
