Tim Visser opens up on loss at the hands of Glasgow

TIM VISSER has become the first Edinburgh Rugby player to comment on this week's 30-18 defeat by Glasgow.

"The morning after is never great when you've lost a big game! Only positive is that we get another shot Sunday," said the Dutch winger on the social network site, Twitter.

Meanwhile, Edinburgh have been told they have to mix it more in Sunday's Murrayfield return and recall Fijian Netani Talei whose recent absence has been shrouded in mystery.

The advice comes from former Lions coach Jim Telfer who said: "I expect a far more physical effort from Edinburgh. Scott McLeod, sent off for fighting, will be a big miss. But big carriers like Netani Talei, Ross Ford and Fraser McKenzie should be used to lead the forward assault."

Also on his STV blog Telfer calls on Visser to become more involved: "Tim Visser was never seen in attack - that will have to change - or Glasgow will again go home with the spoils.

However Telfer saw positives for Edinburgh on Monday, saying: "They had the superior scrum throughout the game - Alan Jacobsen had Moray Low in all sorts of trouble - and showed quite a lot of invention at the lineout."
