Statement - Scotland Women v England Women
Scotland Women’s Six Nations match against England at Scotstoun has been postponed due to extreme weather associated to Storm Ciara.
The game was due to kick off at 12:10pm in Glasgow but the decision has been taken for both player, spectator and staff safety after consultation with local authorities, Glasgow Life, Six Nations and the RFU.
Wind speeds of up to 70mph are forecast after kick-off and avoiding unnecessary travel has been advised.
A Scottish Rugby spokesperson said: “It is very disappointing to have to take this decision but given the extreme weather conditions and with supporters, players and staff safety being paramount it’s the correct decision
We will always put safety first. I’d like to apologise to fans for any inconvenience Storm Ciara has caused and we will update them with more information on the rescheduling on the game.”
