First proper match thread in a while for Edinburgh - is that just because you really wanted to post a picture of Harley Quinn? Very Happy

I was going to go to this game but then discovered that the cheap seats start at £35 each, with more reasonable seats even more expensive.  'quins usually get big crowds so they must make a lot of ticket money!

To watch Edinburgh? It would be cheap at twice that price! Although you can't truly put a price on that feeling you get while watching Duncan Weir miss touch with a penalty, as I'm sure a future MasterCard advert will tell us

Mind you, at least for that sort of money Edinburgh fans will be comforted to see the familiar sight of Tim Visser running in a crapload of tries.

Exciting game, we are rubbish most of the time right now but undefeated at home in all competitions so I am hopeful we will continue the streak! No Robshaw a big loss. Hope Visser gets a run out and we see more of his awesome scoring than his dire defence!

Have England stolen our players yet? Depending on that and whether recent injuries are back, the team could look anything from:

Brown
Visser
Marchant
Roberts (not that his form has been great but we have literally no other 12s)
Yarde
Evans
Care 
Clifford
Wallace
Chisholm
Horwill
Merrick
Sinckler
Buchanan
Marler

Evans, Ward, Jones, Reddish, Luamanu the red card machine, Dickson, Swiel, Walker/Alofa

To this:

Morris
Walker
Marchant
Frak knows
Alofa
Swiel
Dickson
Luamanu (think he's back, say hello to a red card...)
Wallace
Naopu
Matthews
South
Jones
Buchanan
Evans

???, Gray, Shields, ???, Ward, Muchrone, Lang, Cheesman

No international players should be missing or else the Pro 12 teams would be ruined. Is Jackson out injured again? Last I heard, I thought he had been playing well.

Nick Evans returned and he appeared to be dropped straight away, which is a shame because by all accounts a run of games was doing him good.

I don't understand that. If Jackson is playing well (and kicking acceptably), Quins have more to gain playing him than Evans who is in the twilight of his career.

One of the quins fans probably knows more about it but quins seem hell bent on picking Evans regardless of how he fit he is. He's hardly been fit all season yet gets thrown back in, only to get injured again!

The last I saw of Jackson at quins was in the defeat to Worcester the game before last, where he put one of the most woeful tackle attempt imaginable on Ben Te'o for one of their tries, at least I think it was Jackson.

Some things will never change, you cheap sod!

I think Edinburgh will get stuffed, so it wouldn't be the ticket price keeping me away. I'd go to the Natural History Museum instead.

Jackson was kicking well but arguably whether he was playing well- I'd say Swiel is our best 10 on form

Evans might be concussed thanks to a high, shoulder only, seemingly intentional hit to the face off the ball leading to him leaving the field, which was not penalised nor cited against Sale despite the new directives. Very odd

Swiel is definitely our best 10 this season, a bit flaky at times but I want to see him get a good run of games to gain experience. He has a lot of potential.

Jackson at the moment seems better covering 10/15 from the bench.
As said Swiel is in pole position for me - not Sure what Kingston thinks to be honest!

As I understand it there are a number of permutations for this game. Do Quins have to win and prevent Edinburgh from gaining a LBP? or something like that?

Quins are 2 points ahead of Edinburgh so any win should guarantee them top of the group, although it might get complicated if they only get 4 points and Edinburgh get 1, then Edinburgh get a BP win against TS and quins lose away to SF with nothing....so you may be right that 4 points for quins and nothing for Edinburgh will see you home!

Here's the pool placing criteria

2.3 The five pool winners and three best-placed runners-up will qualify for the quarter-finals and will be decided as follows:
(a) The pool winner will be the club with the highest number of match points in each pool. The best-placed runners-up will be the three clubs with the highest number of match points out of the five clubs that finish second in their respective pools. For the quarter-finals, the pool winners will be ranked 1 to 5 and the best-placed runners-up 6 and 8 by reference to the number of match points earned.

(b) If two clubs in the same pool are equal on match points at the end of the pool stage, their ranking will be determined by the results of the two matches played between the relevant clubs as follows:
(i) the club with the greater number of match points from those matches; or
(ii) if equal, the club with the best aggregate points difference from those matches: or
(iii) if equal, the club that scored the most tries in those matches.

Edinburgh name a full strength team (injuries aside) - Nel return!

Tighthead prop WP Nel is among four changes to Edinburgh Rugby’s starting XV to face Harlequins in tomorrow’s (Saturday 14 January) round five European Challenge Cup clash at Twickenham Stoop (kick-off 3pm).

WP Nel returns to face Quins

Scotland cap Nel – who has been out of action with a neck injury since October – comes in to take the number three jersey in one of two changes to the starting pack.

The other amendment comes in the back-row where Hamish Watson – who this week signed a new two-year deal with the club – starts on the openside flank.

In the backline, experienced operator Phil Burleigh returns at inside-centre, with club centurion Tom Brown set to start on the left wing.

Acting Head Coach, Duncan Hodge, said: “There’s a lot at stake for both sides tomorrow, which makes for an exciting tie.

“Harlequins’ home record speaks for itself, and we have no doubt about the size of task ahead, but there is a good buzz in camp and a belief that we can go down to London and do what is required of us.

“The last match between the two sides was an open, fluid and attack-focussed affair but we’re two months down the line and conditions could play a big part in the return-leg.

“We’ve named a fairly consistent squad with a lot of players meriting re-selection off the back of a good win away to Zebre. We hope those coming in bring their experience to the fore in tomorrow’s match.”

Blair Kinghorn, Damien Hoyland and Brown – all of whom scored against Quins at BT Murrayfield in October – start as the back-three.

Hogmanay try-scorer against Zebre, Chris Dean, retains his starting spot in the number 13 jersey and joins Burleigh in midfield, while Sean Kennedy and Duncan Weir continue as the half-back pairing.

Nel joins Ross Ford and Allan Dell up-front to form an all Scotland international front-row, with Fraser McKenzie and Ben Toolis continuing in the boiler-room.

Magnus Bradbury starts on the blindside flank, with Watson on the openside and Cornell Du Preez remaining at number eight.

Personally I would have picked SHC at 9, Tovey at 10 and Allen at 13.

Gilchrist completely out of favour?  

It is a strange one - he's not listed as injured but surely he's a better bench option than an Academy lock?

I think this might add to the rumours that Gilchrist is off to Gloucester next season. He has not been pulling his weight this year and the coaches might finally have sussed that, better to carry on trying to develop Carmichael for the future.

An incredibly liberal use of the term 'full strength' there given that Weir is starting and Tovey isn't injured. Great to see Nel back!

Not quite desperation for Quins, they've not had to fill spots on the bench with academy lads. There's a lot of players missing though that could be said for Edinburgh as well. Surely Quins won't crumple at the Stoop?

Anything is possible at the moment Sam.

I'm not up to date with the squad - Where is Roberts, Visser, Horwell, Collier, Twomey?

Know about Marler and Robshaw.

Any updates of George Lowe

It's not like your other number 11 - Tim Visser - hasn't been scoring tries for you with 17 tries in 28 appearances!

I'm not up to date with the squad - Where is Roberts, Visser, Horwell, Collier, Twomey?

Know about Marler and Robshaw.  

Any updates of George Lowe

I think I heard Lowe had a back problem. Presume that's not a quick fix.

Agree with RDW - I'd have SH-C, Tovey and Allan.

Kennedy I can understand, as SH-C still hasn't done a huge amount, but Weir over Tovey is just plain wrong. As for Chris Dean, I haven't yet figured out what he does. Allan is more dynamic in attack.

To be fair Dean has been a lot better this year - you barely noticed him last season but he is contributing a lot more to games now. He's even shown good pace in the odd interception try or run-in that he's done.

Saying that, our attack seems to be more blunt with him at 13 compared to Allan - him and Burleigh got nowhere against Glasgow and I worry it will be the same against quins.

Edinburgh are going to have to brutalise the Quins in the front 5. It has been poor weather down here so the pitch ought to be in bad shape. Gilchrist has turned into Warburton (poor for his club, decent for his country) and having McKenzie in there may make for a better partnership. Quins are so much more dangerous in the backs that being spreading the ball may be the wrong strategy.

Yes, second yellow of the game for them. 

I find following the live feed much less stressful than actually watching Edinburgh.

Third yellow for Quins. Jaysus - have their been sprinkling Crushed Angry on their Weetabix?

Nel didn't come back on according to the official match feed.

To make Quins' fans evening complete, Rhubarb Jackson has escaped onto the pitch.

Denying Quins an LBP as well. Edinburgh certainly have the easiest final game, they must finish top now
