In its second year, women from Glasgow & Caledonia (West) and Edinburgh & The Borders (East) have been selected from clubs and the BT Sport Scottish Rugby Academy. East will be looking to retain the Cup after being the first to lift it following their convincing 32-10 win over West last season. This year’s clash has been timed before the start of the club season, which kicks off next weekend.
The Donna Kennedy Cup is one of seven games at BT Murrayfield taking place across the back and international pitches, including the BT Sport Scottish Rugby Academy regional finals from 10.30am.
