Duncan Weir and Will Helu return for Edinburgh

Duncan Weir and Will Helu are back in the Edinburgh starting line-up ahead of the Guinness PRO12 meeting with Ospreys.

Stand-off Weir is back for Friday night's clash in Swansea after recovering from a fractured jaw while winger Helu makes his first appearance of the season following a long-term hamstring problem.

Centre J unior Rasolea and hooker Stuart McInally are also back in while Allan Dell and Grant Gilchrist return from Scotland duty

Acting head coach Duncan Hodge said: "We were disappointed with the loss to Dragons but we're on the road to Wales again and are looking to bounce back with a big performance against a good Ospreys side.

"We've moved on from last week's result, taken lessons from the match and worked hard this week in training to right our wrongs, with the players showing a real focus and positive attitude to make amends to their game, both personally and as a collective.

"Several changes have been made in key positions but it's credit to the depth of our squad that we're able to rotate and field a team with such experience.

"Ospreys are a team who will be high on confidence due to their current form but there is a lot of belief in our side and we're looking forward to challenging them on their home patch."
