Shifting Bradbury to second row has been on the cards for a while and makes sense given the resources we have.

He has potential to be excellent there, as long as he manages to carry the extra bulk he will need.

After that long injury lay off he said he was up to 115kg with the extra time for strength and conditioning so he's only a touch off Gilchrist and Toolis as it is.

Disappointed to see McCallum still on the bench, should be starting.

Agree on McCallum, he did well last week. He needs a chance to grow into that jersey.

Didn't realise Taylor had served his three match ban. "A" team match,Munster and what other one?

McAllum will be all the better for that shift he had last week so good to see him being played back in . Weather should be good tomorrow unlike last week’s atrocious conditions so opportunity to use pace of Back 3 and Johnson out wide . Taylor should be fresh after lay off and renew his progress of last season . Dean along with Schoeman is apparently our most games minutes played in squad since the restart, so good to see him some benefit from rotation.

Congratulations to Pierre Schoeman. Edinburgh captain! *Co-captain.

What happened to Dan Winning? The penalty try last year last game we played covid was the highlight of the season maybe.

As the Dragons match was postponed it must be the Scotland v Wales game - he was called into the squad. No chance he would actually have played even if not suspended mind you...

Think recall someone posted a while back that Winning had quit pro-rugby.

Lots of ball carrying ability in that pack, it would be nice to see it utilised rather than being neutered by endless pick and goes!

The Edinburgh backs running it out of the 22 was so poor. It was on but not one of them drew the man and allowed an easy drift.

Not one ball player in the backline from 9-15!

If that pass isn't forward then I don't know what is!

Terrible decision, but we are not in this, the game is being played in our territory

Groom slows any slight chance we get
