Edinburgh win 1872 Cup after play-off place is confirmed

Edinburgh found themselves in the odd position of having actually achieved their main goal of the season fifteen minutes before this match kicked off at Murrayfield; Munster’s draw with Ulster, a match that finished just before this one started, guaranteed Richard Cockerill’s team a place in the play-offs and next season’s Champions Cup.

Edinburgh reintegration comes with a catch for winger Dougie Fife

Had circumstances been different, Dougie Fife would find himself in Australia right now, putting the final touches to preparations for the Commonwealth Games sevens tournament which begins in the 
early hours of tomorrow morning. Instead, he finds himself at Murrayfield, getting ready for a game which could see Edinburgh take a significant step towards the Pro14 play-offs.

Dave Rennie glad to win respect back for Glasgow Warriors

The scoreline tells its own story. This was a 3-0 game at the extended half-time break and it was a 6-0 match deep into the third quarter. And the 17-0 final score undoubtedly flattered Glasgow but, in comparison to last weekend’s implosion, the Warriors boss Dave Rennie was happy enough with the 1872 Cup win over Edinburgh at Scotstoun.
