Due to weather conditions in some parts of the country, Scottish Rugby has received inquiries from supporters about the status of the RBS 6 Nations Championship fixture between Scotland and Wales at Murrayfield tomorrow.(Sunday 8 February, kick-off 3pm).
We have undersoil heating at Murrayfield and, at this juncture, with the current weather forecast, there is no threat to the match going ahead as scheduled. The match is close to a sell-out but Scottish Rugby's Ticket Centre is open today for the last few remaining tickets.
Scottish Rugby urges all supporters bound for Murrayfield tomorrow to check their proposed travel arrangements at regular intervals.
