With the press reporting today that Edinburgh could stand to earn up to 2 million quid from their HK run having made it to the semi final, and Glasgow hopefully qualifying for the Rabbo playoffs and earning more cash, what would 606V2 like them to spend their cash on??

From a recruitment point of view from Edinburgh, we've already strengthened our front row with JP Nel and (rumored) John yapp. There is also talk of a Georgian number 8 coming in as Talei could be going somewhere else (nooooooooooo!!!!!!!!!!!)

What we definitely need is a few 2nd rows, and maybe a scrum half if Mike Blair leaves (will he be tempted to stay now?)

What do Glasgow fans think in terms of bringing in players?

The SRU did say that all prize money from Edinburgh and Glasgow would be split between the 2 teams....

You get 2 million for getting an away semi?! Bloody hell. I didn't think you got that much for the HEC

Thats 440 000 lump sum for the quarters, the same for the semi, plus a share of the ticket money from both!

If there is enough they might want to help Ireland out to pay out Kidney's contract as well. Whistle

The SRU have been spending a fair amount recently as is. I don't see the problem in them not spending it and trying to service their debt, even if it doesn't go that far towards wiping it out.

My thoughts exactly, and give the idiot that gave him the contract the sack as well!

I expect some of it will be used to bring in a few players for Edinburgh. With Blair expected to leave I wouldn't be surprised if McKibben made the trip from the SH to join them. They need a few good locks and some backline cover.

Edinburgh's Twitter feed said there will be a *BIG* announcement tomorrow - I am assuming that will mean a new player, and by the way they've said it someone who is quite physically large, which is very welcome!

Could be anything though!

In terms of players they need, Edinburgh could really use a meaty second row, a powerhouse loosehead and a quality reserve winger.

I'd use the money for that if it could it stretch that far.

That would be great for the fans, but no use for me cause already spent a lot of time researching how to get there myself and have ended up booking everything!

I'm sure all Edinburgh fans would still probably prefer a quality 2nd row though....I know I would!

I think It's only fair to share this money between Glasgow and Edinburgh. The majority share going to Edinburgh since Glasgiw got a pretty big cash injection to try and Keep Richie Gray and spent that well ish in the form of Bringing in Mr Glass and his brother Sean Lamont.

It would be really nice to see the SRU take a punt and use the money to try an kick start the third pro team in Scotland up north somewhere. Aironi have just folded so I would say there has to be a slot opening up surely?

Either put the cash into:

- Paying off Murrayfield and throwing off the shackles of debt

- Keeping their international class players. There were 14 players in the Six Nations squad who play outside Scotland.

That'll be the Georgian number 8 that I was talking about earlier. Wasn't overly excited when I first heard about it - if was playing in France's 2nd tier how good could he really be? - but that was a good try against England and the article seems to sing his praises!

As I've said though I hope this doesn't mean Talei is out the door.

With the Exception of Kelly Brown I would say Scotland's best players are at either the Burgh or Glasgow.

In no particular order of preference

1. Welsh (Glasgow) Jacobson (Edinburgh)
2. Ford (Edinburgh) MacArthur (Glasgow)
3. Cross (Edinburgh) Lowe (Glasgow)
4. Gray (Glasgow, soon to be Sale but money was not the reason he moved on) Kellock (Glasgow)
5. Gilchrist (Edinburgh) Hamilton (Glaws)
6. Brown (Sarries) Harley (Glasgow)
7. Rennie (Edinburgh) Barclay (Glasgow) Fusaro (Glasgow)
8. Denton (Edinburgh) Wilson (Glasgow)
9. Blair (Edinburgh) Cusiter (Glasgow)
10. Laidlaw (Edinburgh) Weir (Glasgow) Jackson (Glasgow)
11. Visser (Edinburgh) S.Lamont (Scarlets soon to be Glasgow) Evans (Castres)
12. Scott (Edinburgh) Grove (Worcs) Morrison (Glasgow)
13. NDL (Edinbrugh) Dunbar (Glasgow) Ansbro (London Irish)
14. Jones (Edinburgh) R. Lamont (Glasgow)
15. Hogg (Glasgow) Brown (Edinburgh)

I suppose this comes down to selection again, lets not open that can of worms on another thread though!

honjesly I think the Money should be divided equally, with the addition playoff money Glasgow bring in, and given back to the teams as a bonus, they can decide what to use it on.

Think they would best spend it on advertiing and really push to get people coming to games while Glasgow and Edinburgh are on the crest of a wave.

I don't think Murreyfield needs paid of before a 3rd pro team could com on board, the WRU and IRFU have stadium debts as well, but can promote 4 teams.
