Scotland's Super6 franchises will face Welsh opposition during April and May

Watsonians will host Cardiff in the opening round of cross-border fixtures between Scotland's Super6 franchises and their Welsh Premiership rivals.

The competition runs from 25 April to 30 May next year, following the conclusion of the inaugural Super6, which begins in November.

Six rounds of fixtures will take place involving the top six sides from last term's Welsh Premiership.

Each team will host three matches and all sides will play each other once.

Scottish Rugby's Super6 tournament director Stevie Gemmell says the Welsh opposition will provide the franchises with "quality opposition".

"[The tournament] will make for some intense, physical and, I am sure, entertaining rugby," he added.
