Edinburgh advanced to the knockout stage of the Heineken Cup for the first time in eight years when they produced some scintillating rugby to sweep aside London Irish 34-11.

The Scottish outfit's passage was secured by tries from Tim Visser, Jim Thompson, Netani Talei and Lee Jones, plus a string of kicks from captain Greig Laidlaw, who landed all four conversions and a brace of penalties.

The Exiles, who had no chance of progressing from Pool Two, posed a limited offensive threat. Their points came from a Jonathan Joseph try and two penalties by Adrian Jarvis.
