The Super Series Sprint game between Glasgow Warriors ‘A’ and Stirling Wolves has been postponed due to injury issues.

Glasgow are currently dealing with an extensive injury list and a lack of front row players means they are unable to play the game on Friday night.

Glasgow Warriors have a week off from games this weekend but with a trip to South Africa to come as they enter the final stages of the URC season, they have decided to protect the rest of their players and are therefore unable to field a side.

The match was due to take place at Bridgehaugh and they say they have attempted to get help from Premiership clubs as well as Scotland U20s but have been unable to do so for this match.

Glasgow have a number of injuries to senior front row players at present with the likes of Johnny Matthews, Oli Kebble, Jamie Bhatti and George Turner all out as well as Angus Fraser, who suffered a head injury playing for the A team last time out.

A statement from Glasgow Warriors have confirmed that they had looked for assistance but not enough cover was able to be provided to get the game going ahead this weekend.

Managing director Al Kellock said: “We’re disappointed not to be able to fulfil Friday’s A-team fixture. We have done everything within our power to try to get numbers available to play this match. Yet we cannot get enough players available for it to go ahead safely.

“We are also at an extremely important time in our league season. Therefore, we must prioritise putting our best efforts into our progress in the league and maintaining our league position and bid for home play-offs.

“Thank you to Stirling Wolves for their understanding as we take this necessary decision.”
