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”.
