Edinburgh beat the Blues

Edinburgh joined Cardiff at the top of Heineken Cup Pool Two after ending the Blues' unbeaten record with a 19-12 victory at Murrayfield.

Tim Visser's first-half try and a 14-point kicking haul from Greig Laidlaw earned Edinburgh a third win from four European matches to put them in with a chance of a first quarter-final appearance in eight years.

The January fixtures at home to London Irish and against Racing Metro in Paris will decide Edinburgh's fate following a comfortable success, albeit without scoring a second-half point. Dan Parks kicked three penalties for the Blues, who clinched a losing bonus point which could prove crucial when Leigh Halfpenny booted a 79th-minute penalty.
