Stephen Myler kicked 16 points as Northampton came from behind to win 31-27 at Murrayfield and go three points clear at the top of Heineken Cup Pool One.

It was a heartbreaking scoreline for Edinburgh who had played some scintillating rugby in the first half, only to see their lead whittled away as the power of the Northampton pack forced them on to the back foot.

Allan Jacobsen, Netani Talei and Ben Cairns were the try-scorers for Edinburgh, with Chris Paterson contributing 12 points, while Dylan Hartley, James Downey and Paul Diggin touched down for Saints.
