Edinburgh coach Alan Solomons praised his side for a second-half showing which “saved our season” as they beat Zebre 29-0 at 
BT Murrayfield last night.

At half-time they were only 3-0 up against the second-bottom side and left it until the very last play of the game to secure the bonus-point try through Alex Toolis, which takes them temporarily fifth in the Guinness Pro12.

Solomons said: “Our first half was very poor. We didn’t fire a single shot and we had 40 minutes to save our season basically. We got the critical bonus point.”

Wing Damien Hoyland scored two tries and Sam Hidalgo-Clyne made a crucial difference off the bench, scoring a try of his own and having a hand in all the others.
