Edinburgh out to shine on landmark day


The Edinburgh journey continues under head coach Richard Cockerill on Saturday in one of the four intriguing European Champions Cup quarter-finals this weekend.

Murrayfield hosts the first of the quarters as the Scots look to reach the semi-finals for the first time since 2012 when they welcome Munster to the capital.

Edinburgh to win @ 31/20

Cockerill has rightly been receiving plenty of plaudits for his work north of the border and many at his struggling former club Leicester Tigers will be ruing the decision to move the head coach on.

Having topped a group that included the likes of Toulon, Montpellier and Newcastle Falcons, Edinburgh have shown they can mix it with formidable opposition.

They will have to produce their game of the season to overcome Munster and their Ireland internationals but on home soil, and with Cockerill the mastermind behind the operation, they might just be able to edge this one in front of a bumper crowd at Murrayfield.

Racing 92 -5.5 FT Handicap @ 25/27

With Saracens and Leinster looking set to get home victories on Saturday against Glasgow and Ulster respectively, the attention turns to an all-French affair on Sunday.

Racing 92 welcome Top 14 rivals Toulouse to the capital in what should be a real spectacle at the impressive Paris La Défense Arena.

Toulouse have enjoyed a real reassurance this season, having once been the kings of Europe in their illustrious past.

They do lead the way in the Top 14 but they face a real big ask at Racing 92, a side that themselves have come on leaps and bounds in recent season.

The likes of Finn Russell, Teddy Thomas and Simon Zebo continue to dazzle in their star-studded backline and again the hosts might just have enough to edge this one and book their place in the semi-finals.
