NEWS | Club captain Mckenzie returns for Krasny Yar clash

Head coach Richard Cockerill has named his Edinburgh team to face Krasny Yar in tomorrow night's European Challenge Cup match at BT Murrayfield (Friday 15 December, kick-off 7.35pm). 

After his try-scoring debut against London Irish last weekend, Darcy Graham gets the nod at fullback. The 20-year-old is joined in the back-three by Damien Hoyland and Duhan van der Merwe, who makes his home debut.

Jaco van der Walt continues to impress at stand-off and will link up with Sean Kennedy, who makes his first start of the season. James Johnstone and Chris Dean make up the midfield partnership.

Neil Cochrane is the only alteration to an otherwise unchanged front-row as the experienced hooker packs down alongside Rory Sutherland and Murray McCallum. In the second-row, club captain Fraser McKenzie returns to fray and will link up with Lewis Carmichael.

Magnus Bradbury, Jamie Ritchie and Cornell du Preez make up a strong back-row trio.
