Edinburgh Rugby are the capital’s professional rugby side and currently split home games between Murrayfield and Myreside. The head coach is Richard Cockerill and current club captain is Magnus Bradbury.
Reports yesterday from a very forthright press conference by Richard Cockerill have Sam Hidalgo-Clyne, Cornell du Preez, Jason Tovey and Duncan Weir all headed for the exit from Edinburgh at the end of the season.
Edinburgh took on Glasgow in the first of three 1872 Cup legs this season, and a return to back to back festive derby matches. An early sending off threatened to turn it into a mouldy brussel sprout but Edinburgh fought back to make a cracker of it as Rory Baldwin looked on.
Edinburgh’s backroom department have been busy in recent weeks with Richard Cockerill’s team making a number of signings to bolster the squad. Will Duncan Weir be left out in the cold by all these fly-half signings?
