08th July 2016

The fixtures for 2016/17 have today been revealed, and the Scots will head to Lady Bay first up to take on Nottingham on 2/3/4 September.

London Scottish will be hoping to reach beyond mid-table and achieve the same heights as in 2014/15 when they made the top four for the first time. Their first home match of the season will will be an Exile Derby against London Welsh the following weekend.

Following 22 rounds of competitive rugby the league winner will be decided by a play-off format which continues for the eighth year.

The 2016/17 British & Irish Cup fixtures have not yet been announced but the first matches played on the weekend of October 13th-15th.
