Ton-up capital side can add cup of cheer
Edinburgh head coach Alan Solomons has named a team he hopes will put a gloss on the club’s 100th appearance in the Heineken Cup tomorrow.
Standing in their way are English Premiership side Gloucester, who arrive in the Scottish capital for the first leg of a European Cup double-header in a fiercely competitive pool.
All four teams in the group – which is completed by two-time champions Munster and French Top 14 side Perpignan – go into the weekend with one win from the opening two rounds, with Edinburgh and Gloucester level on four points. Edinburgh can take confidence from their consistently improving home form. They have won four consecutive matches at Murrayfield, a run which started with their victory over Munster in October.
