rugby match?

I'm traveling with a group of 8 coming to Edinburgh the weekend of March 27th. I see that there is a rugby match that Friday evening. Sounds fun. Would the locals recommend it for a first time visit?

Thanks

There is a good atmosphere at the rugby matches at Murrayfield stadium but given that this is a league match and not an international there will probably be maybe 10,000 people there in a stadium that holds 65,000. The opposition is an Irish team and there is usually good travelling support. There is never any trouble at Rugby matches and supporters of both teams sit side by side and get on well.http://www.edinburghrugby.org/

Yes, I'd recommend it.

You can buy tickets in advance via the website already mentioned by 3nationsfamily or from 6pm on the night at the ticket office.

Make sure you dress warmly, based on personal experience it is cold in the stadium at night.
