Return of the Big Guns



Scotland's Six Nations heroes are back with the Edinburgh Gunners for their match against the Ospreys at the Liberty Stadium, Swansea on Sunday (26 March, kick-off 4.10pm) as the Scots make a final push for Celtic League glory.  Gunners' captain Chris Paterson returns to the starting line-up alongside Hugo Southwell, Marcus Di Rollo, Simon Webster, Mike Blair, Scott Murray, Allister Hogg, Alastair Kellock, Craig Smith and Dougie Hall.

Edinburgh go into this weekend's round of matches in fourth position behind Ireland's Ulster, Munster and Leinster. There are still seven matches left in the League with trips to face the Ospreys, Munster, Connacht and the Dragons along with home fixtures against Cardiff Blues, Llanelli Scarlets and Leinster.

Gunners' head coach Todd Blackadder said: "It has been a tough week for us selection-wise with our international players back in the frame. It has been a good week too and we are looking forward to going down to play last year's champions.  We've had plenty of time to prepare for this game because we knew the internationalists would be back with us. The mood has been excellent this week and the attitude is awesome."

Simon Taylor was unavailable for selection having sustained a back injury during training.  Blackadder said: "He tweaked his back but I'd like to think he'll be back with us for our next match against Cardiff in two weeks times."
