Edinburgh head coach Alan Solomons is hoping Greig Laidlaw can say goodbye to the fans with a victory when he leads the side out against Munster on Saturday night.

The 28-year-old is joining Gloucester next season and will be playing at Edinburgh's temporary Meggetland home for the last time when they take on the Irish giants in the RaboDirect Pro12.

Solomons said: "It's our last home game of the season and it's Greig Laidlaw's last home match as captain before he leaves, so there is a lot to play for from our side in that respect.

"Munster are motivated by the fact that they want to secure the best possible play-off spot. We are motivated by the fact that it has been a very tough season and we would like to finish our home campaign on a good note by delivering a good performance, for Greig and for our supporters."

Solomons added: "Munster are historically a very resilient team and I expect them to bounce back from that defeat immediately.

"They have made it clear since that game that their attention is totally on the PRO12 and that they are determined to come here and secure a win."
