Bit odd given Fowles is potentially away with Scotland leave us quite bare. Similarly at FB, Fife I suppose is the option, unless Tovey is nearing fitness?

Would have though a winger would have been missed less or even a centre, athough Rasolea would be the one to free and he is the one who is not eligible.

Edinburgh don't have any games those weeks, so disruption will be minimal.

Try ''prognoses' :lol:

If Dickinson is not able to come back due to injury, which would be a shame and a big loss, his successor would likely be down to who's the better, Marfo or Lay. Lay going to Bristol simplifies the choice and Marfo has anyway won his spurs for Edinburgh (and Scotland).

Sutherland, Dell, Marfo +1 would be a pretty fine line-up at loosehead.

Hopefully we can get Cosgrove back. He's only played 3 league games and some B&I games for Bristol. He'd probably have played every game for us this season - possibly even a Scotland cap.

Strange Cosgrove has played that little. I thought he looked excellent here - would be a decent squad option. Another one to keep an eye on would be George Thornton in the wasps academy. I guess Ross Dunbar might be ready?

Gordon Reid might be looking for a new club....

I'm not sure why Cosgrove hasn't started more games for Bristol. He's started in 4, been a replacement for another 4 and is currently out injured (ankle).

Whilst he always seemed to play well for Edinburgh, he's not seemed quite right in Bristol colours - but then none of the Bristol forwards seem to be firing on all cylinders so far this season.
