Turnbull Aiming To Hare Past Connacht

ImageAndrew Turnbull revealed he is aiming to get back on the scoresheet when Edinburgh face Connacht in Galway tonight (kick off 6.30pm).

The quicksilver winger scored a try in both of Edinburgh's opening two games of the season and impressed with some creative breaks.

But since then the 25-year-old has not crossed the whitewash during the draw against Ospreys and the home defeat suffered at the hands of the Dragons.

Nevertheless the Scotland Sevens international admits he is targeting try number three against the western Ireland Province this evening.

Turnbull said: "I haven't got a try in the past couple of games, so it would be nice to get back on the score-sheet.

"It would be nice a habit to keep going. I try and score a try in every game I play and do the best I can do."

With Scotland internationals Hugo Southwell and Simon Webster returning to the back-three, right-winger Turnbull acknowledges the fierce competition for places throughout the side means that players realise if they not hit the required standard they could then get dropped.

He added: "Competition for places breeds success. It makes you train harder when you know if you have one bad game you could be out the door."

Tonight's match will be Turnbull's first taste of top-class rugby at The Sportsground and revealed the sight of the stadium's dog track might even inspire him to run faster on the pitch.

He joked: "If they get the bunny going around then I will follow it."
