Scotland centre Simon Webster has urged his Edinburgh team-mates to take their blistering pre-season form into their Celtic League opener against Munster.
Webster scored a thrilling try against Bath in last Friday night’s 19-8 win at The Rec – a victory which followed on the back of their triumph at home to Wasps the previous weekend.
The Scotland wing latched onto David Callam’s kick to score and now the Hartlepool-born utility back is excited by the arrival of the European champions Munster to Murrayfield.
Webster said: “I owe Dave Callam a lot for my try. We turned it over at the ruck and he got a foot on it and I shouted; ‘kick it on’. He put the kick in for me and it was absolutely perfect; it bounced up for me and I just ran it in.
“It is nice to get on the scoresheet, but I wasn’t concerned about not scoring for Edinburgh for so long. Rugby is a bit different to football; anyone in the team can score not just the wingers. But it is certainly nice to score and I’m more than happy to score.
“It is just nice to keep the momentum going through pre-season. We’ve had two good wins, so in that respect, but now it all comes down to playing Munster in our first game.
“We’ve got to back up these two decent performances with a display against them. It is nice to win, but now it is all about concentrating Munster in our first Celtic League game.”
