Visser targets try against Glasgow

Flying Dutchman Tim Visser will aim to add to his prolific try-scoring record when Edinburgh seek revenge against Glasgow at Murrayfield on Sunday.

Visser has failed to score against only two Magners League teams since moving to Edinburgh in May 2009 - Newport Gwent Dragons and Glasgow.

After the Warriors secured a 30-18 win in last Monday's first Greaves Sports 1872 Cup clash, Edinburgh are seeking victory in the return fixture, and Visser said: "That's the third time now I've played against them and not scored. I always hope to score against everyone. I've never scored against Glasgow and hopefully I can get one on Sunday."

Visser will line up on the left wing in an Edinburgh side showing two personnel changes to the side which lost at Firhill.

Craig Hamilton returns in the second row in place of Scott MacLeod, who was sent off along with Glasgow replacement Chris Fusaro in the final minute of the first match, with the duo subsequently banned for one week.

Netani Talei has recovered from a foot injury and will start at number eight, with captain Roddy Grant moving to blindside flanker.

Mike Blair, fit again following an elbow problem, is named on the bench.
