Robinson Praises Rennie

ImageAndy Robinson heaped lavish praise on Edinburgh youngster Ross Rennie he scooped the man-of-the-match accolade after the 27-17 win over Llanelli Scarlets at Murrayfield but revealed the 21-year-old back rower is still learning the ropes.

Rennie's mobility, ball-carrying and tenacity at the break-down played a pivotal role in ensuring Robinson chalked up his first victory at The Castle.

Both Andrew Maxwell and Nick De Luca scored breathtaking tries, but Rennie stole the show and Robinson was quick to highlight the openside flanker's contribution.

Robinson said: "Ross is going well. He is still a work in progress and he has got to do the things he is doing.

"But at the moment I"m pleased with him and I thought he did very well today. There is still a long way to go for him. He has just got to keep on making the steps he is making."

Despite Scarlets" centre Regan King scoring a hat-trick of tries, Edinburgh kept their nerve and produced a polished second half performance to climb up the Magners League standings.

And Robinson was delighted with the team's collective work-rate and felt the sheer hard graft was the deciding factor in a topsy-turvy match.

He added: "We worked hard for a victory and that was something I was very pleased. We didn't start as well as we probably would have liked to.

"Regan King is an exceptional rugby player and the tries he scored he took very well. But we kept working hard and we were rewarded for our efforts."
