21 – number of previous matches since the 1872 Cup was reintroduced.
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?
