Dalziel and Uddingston rugby clubs' wait for competitive action goes on

The wait for this area’s two club rugby sides to return to competitive action continued as the respective fixtures of Dalziel and Uddingston were put off.

The call-offs came after Scottish Rugby had decided to extend the postponement waiver for adult club league fixtures – in the midst of the continued threat of the Covid-19 Omicron variant - into the weekend of January 15 and 16.

Gavin Scott, Director of Rugby Development, said: “Whilst training and playing rugby are still considered a low-risk activity from the guidance we have received from the Scottish Government and public health experts, we again feel that the right thing to do is give clubs the option to reschedule fixtures, penalty free."

But games will hopefully be back this Saturday, with Dalziel hosting Paisley and Uddingston travelling to Clydebank, both in Tennent’s West Division 2.
