Aironi edge out Edinburgh

Edinburgh slumped to their third loss in four RaboDirect PRO12 matches this season after going down 25-19 at fellow strugglers Aironi.

Aironi were the only side below Edinburgh at kick-off after picking up just one point from their opening three matches, but the Italians emerged victorious at the Stadio Zaffanella largely due to the efforts of fly-half Naas Olivier, who contributed 15 of his side's points.

Tito Tebaldi and Nick Williams also crossed for the hosts, while Kyle Traynor and Tim Visser touched down for Edinburgh, with Greig Laidlaw and Harry Leonard kicking the rest of their points.
