Edinburgh Rugby head coach Alan Solomons has named the same team who lost 11-7 at Connacht last weekend for tomorrow’s RaboDirect PRO12 match against Scarlets in Llanelli (kick-off 2.30pm).

The only changes to the 23-man squad see front-row forwards George Turner (hooker) and Ewan McQuillin (prop) come on to the bench for Ross Ford and Geoff Cross, who have been selected for Scotland to face Italy in the Six Nations.

“Tomorrow’s match is a tough assignment,” said Solomons.

“They [Scarlets] are well-balanced, well-organised side that’s been together for some time, and that makes a big difference.”

Edinburgh: Jack Cuthbert, Dougie Fife, Nick De Luca, Andries Strauss, Tom Brown, Carl Bezuidenhout, Grayson Hart, Wicus Blaauw, James Hilterbrand, Willem Nel, Grant Gilchrist, Izak van der Westhuizen, Mike Coman (c), Roddy Grant, Cornell Du Preez. Substitutes: George Turner, Alex Allan, Ewan McQuillin, Ollie Atkins, Tomas Leonardi, Sam Hidalgo-Clyne, Sam Beard, Harry Leonard.
