Pontypridd Confirmed In British and Irish Cup Pool

11th September 2014

London Scottish will face Pontypridd in the British and Irish Cup for the second time in as many years after the Principality Premiership and SWALEC Cup champions beat Cardiff 40-12 at Sardis Road on Saturday.

Last season it was honours even with Ponty winning in Wales, 27-20, and Scottish securing victory on home soil a week later, 26-21.

It was the Welsh outfit who progressed from the Pool before losing out to eventual winners Leinster 'A' in the semi-finals, on try count, following a tense clash at Sardis Road which ended 22-22 (aet).

This season, the Scots will travel to Wales on the weekend of October 10-12 (date tbc) with Ponty making the trip to London on Saturday, December 13, 3pm kick-off.

Both teams are in Pool One alongside 2011 winners Bristol Rugby and Connacht.
