Solomons makes seven changes

Edinburgh head coach Alan Solomons has made seven changes for Sunday's clash with Guinness PRO12 leaders Ospreys.

Winger Tim Visser returns at the Liberty Stadium after missing the 14-13 defeat by Connacht last weekend.

Scrum-half Sam Hidalgo-Clyne also comes in along with the likes of James Hilterbrand and WP Nel, Anton Bresler and Mike Coman - who will captain the side.

Hooker Neil Cochrane is called up into the squad for the Swansea trip after impressing for Boroughmuir and Heriot's in recent weeks.

Solomons said: "Playing the league leaders away from home is a huge challenge. The Ospreys are pretty much at full strength, with Alun Wyn Jones at the helm and Justin Tipuric returning from injury.

"It will be a real test for us but at the same time a great opportunity for the players selected."
