Edinburgh v SU Agen Team News

Dewey back for Edinburgh



Rob Dewey will make his first appearance of the year tomorrow having recovered from his knee injury. The centre, who had an operation to correct cartilage damage after his try-scoring debut for Scotland last November, has been selected for Edinburgh's Heineken Cup match against SU Agen at Murrayfield.

His return to action is timely as Matt Dey is unavailable after being injured in last week's pool match against Leinster. The only other change in the starting line up sees Dave Callam come in for Simon Taylor who has a thigh injury. Apprentice prop Innes Brown has a chance to make his Edinburgh debut after being named on the bench.

Lynn Howells said: "It's good to have Rob Dewey back as he fetches a physical presence to the midfield. Unfortunately the change in the back row is because Simon Taylor didn't make it through a fitness test this morning but he should be okay to train next week."

"Agen are probably one of the most improved sides in the group and will prove stiff opposition but this game is important to Edinburgh as it leads into the league game against Connacht. Every player now has to put their hands up and show they want to play for Edinburgh."

Unavailable for selection: Mike Blair (collar-bone), Matt Dey (neck), Dave Hewett (leg), Allister Hogg (knee), Greig Laidlaw (knee), Matt Mustchin (collar-bone/shoulder), Craig Smith (neck), Simon Taylor (thigh), Simon Webster (lower leg & ankle).
