Glasgow Warriors 68 - 7 Zebre: Van der Merwe back with a bang

Italy may have given Scotland a hurry up last weekend but the only urgency displayed by Zebre last night was in 
getting off the park at the final whistle as quickly as their legs could carry them. They were

Edinburgh expectations changing as Richard Cockerill keeps building

Since taking over at 
Edinburgh last summer, 
Richard Cockerill has been careful to keep a lid on expectations. First he told his players they were a bottom-four team; then he suggested that Ulster would probably be too strong over the course of the Pro14 campaign; and even in recent weeks, as Edinburgh have opened up a nine-point gap over the Irish province to close in on a play-off place, the message has been a restrained “We’ve given ourselves a chance”.
