EASTBOURNE and Glasgow have stressed their mutual respect ahead of today’s (Sunday) Championship clash at Arlington.
It will be the first meeting between the sides in Sussex since an infamous clash in 2019 which featured controversy both before and during the meeting.
Eagles director Ian Jordan said: “We very much see Glasgow as great friends and have massive respect for everyone there, so I see it more as “friends reuniting”, although for two hours or so on Sunday afternoon, there will be no quarter asked, nor given on either side and it will be unmissable.”
Tigers director Peter Facenna said: “The reality is that our relationship with the management at Eastbourne is excellent. There is a lot of mutual respect between the clubs and we’ve supported each other on and off the track over the last 18 months.
“It was unfortunate what happened in 2019, but it’s firmly behind us. Like the Tigers, the Eagles have some very passionate fans, which is great for the sport, and I hope some Tigers fans are able to make the long trip down on Sunday.”
EASTBOURNE: Richard Lawson, Kyle Newman, Edward Kennett, Tom Brennan, Lewis Kerr, Jason Edwards, Drew Kemp.
GLASGOW: Craig Cook, Broc Nicol, Ricky Wells, Sam Jensen, Ulrich Ostergaard, Connor Bailey, Justin Sedgmen.
