Interesting piece about Graham this. I think in previous years this situation would probably have resulted in the player being released? He is however one of only 6 back three players in the Edinburgh squad and with Brown and Hoyland having played very little rugby over the past season, it's important that Darcy get's with the 15's programme ASAP. The hand of Cockerill evident once more!

Was intrigued to see Glen Bryce has not been included in the 7's squad for San Fran. (particularly as Jack Cuthbert is in there :eek: ). I had thought that that might have been the way his career may have gone and haven't seen any news of him signing anywhere else. Still think he was worth a contract for his versatility.

Hoyland is currently wearing a moon boot and on crutches so don’t think he’ll be playing any time soon, may well be part of the thinking.

Also picked up from Twitter (Scottish Rugby Blog) that John Hardie is currently in France - and also a suggestion that he failed a medical at Clermont earlier in the summer. Presumably that’s why he had surgery, and now back to re-prove - or perhaps talk to Vern?

Agree on Glenn Bryce, depending on budget, can’t imagine he’d be cheap and yet covers 15, 13 and possibly wing at a push. As mentioned by others, if we’re light anywhere it’s in the back 3.

Following his brother's footsteps back in Glasgow ?

Of the 2 I was certainly more excited about Glenn signing than Kevin. He has a bit about him that just doesn't seem to have come through often enough.

Not sure what the situation is now but the wages paid to the 7s players were very low and for an established pro to go there would be a significant cut. I would think he could get better money in the English championship. He should be better than that though. Hopefully its not too late for him to find some form. I would not have been upset if we had kept him on, we do lack a bit of cover in the back 3.

Glenn can also cover 13.

The few games I saw him in the 7's he looked v handy as well. Hopefully we will see him in an Edi/Gla/Sco top again soon.
