Watch: Edinburgh’s Simon Berghan Could Be In Serious Trouble For Stamping On Fraser Brown’s Head

Edinburgh’s Pro14 clash with Glasgow Warriors on Saturday afternoon proved to be full of drama.

Dave Rennie’s side travelled to Scotland’s capital in a rich vein of form, and got off to the perfect start in seeking out their eleventh consecutive victory with a try from Huw Jones in the fourth minute in front of a 24,000-strong crowd at Murrayfield.

Glasgow’s afternoon looked to get even better just several minutes later, as Edinburgh prop Simon Berghan saw red for stamping on the head of Fraser Brown while the Warriors’ hooker was on the ground.

Berghan was subsequently shown his marching orders by the referee, and it wouldn’t be a surprise to see the Scottish international receive a heavy sanction for the incident in question.

Going into the half-time break a man down and with a 7-3 deficit, Edinburgh were up against it after the restart.

Despite the numerical disadvantage,however, Edinburgh rallied back in the second half and, thanks to a last-gasp try from Chris Dean, Richard Cockerill’s fourteen men pulled off an unlikely 18-17 victory.
