The Royal Bank of Scotland Scottish Varsity Rugby Matches are back with a bang at Murrayfield this Saturday 21st September. Ancient rivals Edinburgh and St Andrews will see their teams battling it out in front of thousands of fans in hope of winning the ultimate victory: feeling like a big dog at the Atik afterparty.
