Where we are and where we will be
The idea of Edinburgh is a combination of place, soul and symbolic leadership of a nation

No pressure, just victory every week will do!

I have been meaning to comment on the seasons start for my two teams. The Pars have started better than last year with 2 wins a draw and a loss but that still only puts them 4th in the table . Whilst conventional wisdom suggests not that heading back up after one season can be an advantage in the long run, we cannot afford another season in the second tier. So no pressure then lads.

Edinburgh Rugby on the other hand, though only one match in (and a friendly at that) have had a greats tart with a 22-15 defeat of London Wasps. Results like that could mean that this is our year..so no pressure there either! Whatever happens I intend that this year as well as following Edinburgh away from home as well as at Murrayfield, I will put in an appearance at East End Park as I haven't been down that way for too long. Surely that kind of commitment must mean some new heights can be reached by at least one of these two agents of great joy and frustration!

Sorry Ewan if decided to visit EEP on Saturday, but at least you watched the opposition reach the top of the division, and what a second goal from Griffiths.

No I wasn't at EEP this weekend, I was speaking at a conference for candidates for ministry but all that collective prayer still seemed to be ineffective...

I did hear that goal was a good one though
