Scotland A international Nick De Luca admits the opening stages of the 19-15 Heineken Cup defeat by Toulouse were the most frenetic he has ever experienced.
The 24-year-old centre scored a try as Edinburgh staged a spirited but unsuccessful comeback against the three times Heineken Cup winners on Saturday.
De Luca said: "You have got to get used to the tempo of the game and that was one of the fastest games I've been involved in. I've played against the likes of Biarritz, Leicester and Northampton before, but for the first 10 minutes of that game the tempo was unbelievable.'
England flanker James Haskell insists he will be pushing as hard as possible to be back from a toe injury in time to make his case for a spot in Eddie Jones' side looking to defend their RBS 6 Nations title next year.
