Edinburghs inclusion of Olympics gold medal winning coach Gareth Baber as skills and assistant attack coach continues to pay dividends after a 10 tries to zero, 66-3 drumming over Brive at the DAM Health Stadium during their European Rugby Challenge Cup.

Tries were scored by Jamie Ritchie, Darcy Graham, Ben Muncaster, Hamish Watson, Mark Bennett and Henry Pyrgos, with Freddie Owsley and Glen Young getting a brace each and six of the 10 converted by Emiliano Boffelli.

Fiji loosemen Mesulame Kunavula also played a strong game at number eight setting up Ritchie’s score.

Edinburgh now go unbeaten in their last 17 home games in the pool stage of the Challenge Cup including 10 wins against teams from France.
