Edinburgh coach Rob Moffat talks the talk ahead of his side's crunch tie at Leinster
Edinburgh coach Rob Moffat insists his side have a 'realistic chance' of defying the odds and booking their Magners League play-off spot at powerhouses Leinster on Sunday.
The Scottish outfit have seen their top-four aspirations evaporate after consecutive defeats to Connacht, Newport Gwent Dragons and Ulster in recent weeks.
But Moffat’s side go into their final regular season match in Dublin knowing a bonus point win, combined with a non-bonus point victory for Cardiff against Munster, would see them join neighbours Glasgow Warrior in the playoffs by clinching fourth.
And while the Scottish coach admits it’s a tall order to score four tries at the home of the 2009 Heineken Cup champions, he insists his side can turn around anyone on their day.
“It’s amazing that we’ve still got a chance and you could say we don’t deserve it, but that’s not the point,” said Moffat.
“We have still got that chance and, for me, it’s a very realistic one as well.
“We’ve been disappointed with our performances in the last three games but they are in the past now and we know exactly what we need to do on Sunday.
“Your objective in every game should be to win and try and get a bonus point. Our away record hasn’t been as good this year but you’ve got to do it some time so there’s no reason why we can’t win there.”
