While on pundit duties during Edinburgh’s game against Connacht on Saturday, he was asked about his recovery and replied: "It's coming along really good, I was running on Friday and I'm aiming for the Ulster game in round seven to get back.

"It's been an ongoing issue now for almost 11 months with my knee and after the World Cup I just needed to get it sorted.

"I've been in a bit of pain for the past year but I've just cracked on with it but I'd had enough and just needed to get it sorted out.
