Scotland on World Cup duty

THE 2019 Rugby World Cup begins in Japan tomorrow (September 20) and provides an abundance of great matches.

So it’s just the kick-off times that  will prove problematic for licensees as every game starts in the morning.

Heading to the tournament with expectations low, Scotland could cause a few upsets on their sojourn in the Far East.

The side play Ireland (September 22) and Samoa (September 30).

In the Guinness Pro14, Glasgow Warriors face Cheetahs in South Africa (September 27), while Edinburgh take on Italian side Zebre (September 28).

It’s not just Scottish rugby teams going up against foreign opposition as the Old Firm sides begin their Europa League group stage journeys today (September 19).

Celtic are in France to take on Rennes in the early evening game and Rangers host Dutch giants Feyenoord at Ibrox shortly after.

In the Scottish Premiership, Rangers travel to Perth to face Tommy Wright’s St Johnstone in a Sunday lunchtime clash (September 22), which is followed by an Edinburgh derby from Easter Road. Leith is in the spotlight again as champions Celtic turn up on league duty six days later (September 28).

The group stage of the Champions League is back this fortnight, with Barcelona’s meeting with Inter Milan (October 2) the pick of the games.
