Rugby League returns to the Borders on Friday, October 23 when Scotland take on Ireland at Netherdale in the second of three European Championship games, kick-off 7.30pm.

Scotland were crowned European champions for the first time last season despite losing to France at Netherdale, the first time a rugby league international has been held in the Borders. The stars of Super League will again descend as Gala RFC host the Bravehearts, captained by Danny Brough, again in their only home fixture in the defence of their title.

“Gala RFC are great people to work with and they helped us put on a great event when we played France there last October, said Keith Hogg, chair of Scotland Rugby League.

“The support from rugby fans in the Borders is fantastic and we look forward to putting on another great spectacle this year.”
