Our fixtures are out for next season, and some glamour games we’ve got coming up too! Our first home game is on 31 August in the Scottish Cup v cupholders (and current Premiership Champions) Ayr! Will there be a major upset at Mayfield to start our season with a bang? Will the cup holders be put out almost before the season has started?
And what sort of Ayr team will it be? It’s their club side, not their Super 6 side. Yet who will be in their Super 6 side, nobody knows! And with the Super 6 season not starting till November, will their guys who do go for Super 6 still be eligible for their club side in August?
It gets better! Our early Tennent’s National League 1 fixtures include us going head to head with the club sides of two more Super 6 giants Heriots (7 September) and Melrose (12 October), both also recent Scottish champions – mouth watering prospects! (To explain, the club sides of the Super 6 teams are all in National 1 this year, meaning in total 16 of our 22 fixtures are against clubs that have won the Scottish Premiership.) Bring it on!

Our Titans are in the revamped East Reserve League 2 (the National Reserve leagues have been done away with) and start with a home game against Lasswade on 7 September. See https://www.dundeehighrugby.club/fixtures/ (Titans)
Dundee Morgan are in Tennent’s Caledonia Midlands 3, and start their league campaign on 31 August v Perthshire at the North Inch, followed on 7 September with a home Bowl game v Rosyth. See https://www.dundeehighrugby.club/fixtures/ (Morgan)
