Edinburgh and Glasgow met in the second leg of the 1872 Cup to do battle in our final game of the 2017. It was eventful, but never really got going, writes Rory Baldwin.
Oh, what might have been.
It’s not unusual to start an Edinburgh match report with such a sentiment, but in this case the one that got away was the 4 try bonus point. Referee Roman Poite twice went upstairs to the TMO for tries that on other days we’ve all seen given (usually against Scottish teams) and came back with a no try ruling, thus making this game a lot closer than it really had any right to be.
