Bradley rues missed opportunities


POOL ONE: Racing Metro 19 Edinburgh 9:Edinburgh coach Michael Bradley was left ruing missed opportunities as his team’s losing streak continued on Saturday evening with a 19-9 defeat at Racing Metro.

The Scottish side marched to the semi-finals of last season’s tournament but have failed to win a single match in this campaign. They headed into the Stade Yves du Manoir clash on the back of heavy reverses to Saracens and Munster, in which they did not put a single point on the board.

Greig Laidlaw slotted three penalties to break their scoring duck, but it was not enough as tries for Racing from Juan Imhoff and Ben Arous proved the difference.

Bradley was pleased with his players’ commitment, but was left frustrated at their failure to turn prolonged pressure into points.

He said: “We’re disappointed with the result because we came here to win and we didn’t.

“Unfortunately they then scored a try with probably their only real shot at our line in the second half and that was it. On another day, it could all have been very different.”

Edinburgh, who are bottom of Pool One, welcome Metro to Murrayfield on Friday.
