In the first six rounds of the FOSROC Super6, five of the games were broadcast live on Scottish Rugby TV and on BBC Sport Scotland’s website, totalling over 115,888 views.
The competition has seen 148 tries scored across 26 matches with an average of six tries per game. The average points difference in each match has been a mere 11 points, demonstrating the competitiveness of the majority of matches to date.
Just seven points currently separates the top three teams in the FOSROC Super6. Watsonians are top with 32 points with Heriot’s Rugby just behind on 29.
Southern Knights are in third position on 25 with Ayrshire Bulls in fourth on 23 points, with a game in-hand.
Stirling County and Boroughmuir Bears complete the league standings with 13 and 9 points, respectively.
Teams have one round left of competition - with Ayrshire Bulls and Boroughmuir Bears two games including the game in hand - to determine their league standings before play-offs, on the weekend of Friday 20 to Sunday 22 March and the finals weekend.
League standings at the end of the regular tournament will dictate the hosts for the play-offs.
First and second place earn home advantage. Those in fourth will travel to first place and third place will travel to second place.
The teams which finish in fifth and sixth at the end of the regular tournament will play the first of two legs during the play-offs.
As well as the final at Scotstoun, a further two games will be played on the finals weekend.
The third-place play-off final will be hosted by the losing team in the first / fourth-place play-off, hosting the runners up of the second / third-place play-off.
Fifth and sixth place will play for a second time to confirm their final standing.
