Iain Morrison: Richard Cockerill is conservative but Edinburgh can be adventurous too

The first thing I did after getting home from Murrayfield late on Friday night was to log on to the Champions Cup website and confirm that Edinburgh had indeed won Pool 5 and Glasgow had also qualified for the quarter-finals as a result. I already knew it was true, obviously, I just wanted the reassurance of seeing it in black and white on an official site. It’s been a long time coming.

Warriors coach Jon Humphrys will leave a rugby nation in harmony

It feels like yesterday but almost six years have passed since Jon Humphreys was dragged out of the Ospreys and into Scottish rugby by his former club boss Scott Johnson. Now the Glasgow forwards coach is to return to his homeland at the end of the season to become Wales’ forwards coach. His new boss Wayne Pivac actually approached him back in September and, Humphreys says, he was unsure about Dave Rennie’s plans at the time, although the Warriors head coach has since signed on for another season.
