Captain Mike Coman makes his return to the Edinburgh Rugby team for tomorrow’s European Challenge Cup clash with Lyon.

Coman comes in for Hamish Watson at flanker as coach Alan Solomons makes one change to the XV that won away at Connacht 16-13 last weekend in the Guinness Pro 12.

Edinburgh, who have won every match in Pool 4 so far, can all but secure their passage to the quarter-finals if they win at the Stade Matmut against a Lyon team fighting for survival in the French Top 14.

Edinburgh team to play Lyon (tomorrow, 7.45, Stade Matmut): Cuthbert; Fife, Scott, Burleigh, Visser, Tonks, Hidalgo-Clyne; Dickinson, Ford, Nel, Bresler, B Toolis, Coman (c), Grant, Denton. Subs: Cochrane, Sutherland, Andress, McKenzie, Watson, Kennedy, Te Rure, Strauss.
