Both Edinburgh and Glasgow have big game issues and tonight’s 1872 Cup game with play-off considerations at stake is a test for both and for Scottish rugby, believes Richard Cockerill.
The cavalry rumbled in to Port Elizabeth on Wednesday afternoon allowing Richard Cockerill considerably more leeway than he expected when picking his side to keep Edinburgh’s outstanding run going against the Kings.
Edinburgh’s “collective” can beat the “rock stars” of Toulon a second time, even in their backyard, says up and coming centre Chris Dean.
Edinburgh will be back into full training on the back pitches at Murrayfield this morning but last-minute try-scoring hero Chris Dean says the entire club is relishing Richard Cockerill’s “hard regime” as they look forward to following up Saturday’s thrilling 1872 Cup first leg victory.
Young guns Damien Hoyland and Chris Dean are champing at the bit to get going against the Glasgow Warriors and defend the 1872 Cup for Edinburgh on Boxing Day.
