New Edinburgh caretaker coach Stevie Scott has told his players he expects to see them putting a shift in.

The former Scotland hooker has been put in charge of the team following the exit of former boss Michael Bradley.

The Irishman was relieved of his duties earlier this month with the Murrayfield outfit third bottom of the RaboDirect PRO12 and on a run of seven straight defeats. Their Heineken Cup campaign also ended in humiliation with six straight Pool stage defeats.

Scott insists the only way to lead the club out of their slump is through hard work, saying: "The work to impress our coaching ethos into our game plan began as soon as the final whistle went in the Scotland-France match, and will continue for the rest of the season.

"It means a lot to get this opportunity. I'm Scottish and very passionate about this club, having played just short of 100 games. The club is close to my heart and this will allow me to give something back."

"Edinburgh Rugby have a lot of good players so the first thing we want to see against Ulster on Friday is a good performance and a lot of hard work, in a style that suits the players and their abilities.

Challenge

"It's a big challenge to make an impact in a short space of time and will certainly be difficult against a team of Ulster's quality, but it's something that... I will not shy away from. We're looking forward to getting stuck in."

Scott returned from his coaching commitments assisting caretaker Scotland boss Scott Johnson on Monday following the Dark Blues' 23-16 defeat in Paris and was straight to work at a club he represented on almost 100 occasions as a player.

He added: "I'm delighted to be back with Edinburgh Rugby. This club gave me my first opportunity to play professional rugby and my best memories as a rugby player in a strong side.

"It means a lot to get this opportunity. I'm Scottish and very passionate about this club, having played just short of 100 games. The club is close to my heart and this will allow me to give something back."
