Moffat searching for win

Head coach Rob Moffat has called for his Edinburgh side to turn performances into results, starting with Sunday's Heineken Cup clash with Castres at Murrayfield.

Edinburgh are bottom of Pool One following three defeats from three games, but a minus 10 points difference shows how close they have been.

"I've felt disappointed and frustrated with the three European games. We could and should have won all three and we've ended up losing them all," Moffat told the club website. "We need to put the record right this week and win. We'll try and play as good rugby as we can to win the game, but the most important thing is the win."

He continued: "We know what we should have done last week (21-16 defeat at Castres), we're trying to work out how they'll play this week and react to what they do.

"They want to play rugby. I'm not sure if they'll come here and play as much this weekend - I think they might play a bit tighter.

"It's always a test when you play French teams - they're a quality side."

Moffat has made three changes to his starting XV, with Tim Visser recalled on the wing, Stuart McInally at number eight and Craig Hamilton at second row, with Scotland centre Nick De Luca named on the bench as he looks to make a first appearance of the season following a groin injury.
