Ed­in­burgh’s his­toric win un­der­lines resur­gence

The Guardian - - SPORT - Ian Malin

Ed­in­burgh are on course for their first quar­ter-fi­nal place for six years. If there were any doubts about their resur­gence un­der coach Richard Cock­er­ill they were dis­pelled at Stade Félix Mayol with a his­toric 28-17 win over Toulon, the first Scot­tish side to tri­umph there. A re­peat dis­play in Fri­day night’s meet­ing with Mont­pel­lier in the Scot­tish cap­i­tal can give Ed­in­burgh the bonus of a home draw in the last eight. New­cas­tle’s Cham­pi­ons Cup has been a mixed bag. They were also win­ners in Toulon and they over­came Mont­pel­lier in Oc­to­ber with the last move of the game at Kingston Park but a raft of in­juries did for them in Mont­pel­lier on Fri­day night.
