That's the sort of mean spirited, bad tempered bissum who would make an excellent blind side.

Not the best of starts.

Tovey started pretty well. Lovely penalty kick, fair play. Nice pick up off his toes too, where Edinburgh should probably have done better.

I can't tell if the players are tired or just don't care. That last phase the Edinburgh lads just didn't look up for it.

Scrum against the head now.

We need to get the front row off - they shouldn't have been played 5 days after the last game and no post 6N break!

Have to say I am genuinely much more entertained by this game than I thought ... for all the wrong reasons!!!

COME ON Edinburgh (said in frustration) ... have they really fallen off this season or something?

If we don't get a try before HT I can't see us having any chance of a BP.

We need to try and get a win first!!

Did any of those teams during those stints manage to string together a smooth phase? I thought under him Edinburgh had become more solid / reliable after the exhilarating HK wonder runs but now I'm not so sure.

I do often see Edinburgh as a cup team thanks to those HK runs and even last season in the challenge cup.
