Edinburgh v Cardiff Blues live stream: How to watch the Pro14 match online from anywhere
Edinburgh boss Richard Cockerill has made seven changes to his starting team, with Fijian tighthead Lee-Roy Atalifo getting his frist start. Wing Eroni Sau and fly-half Nathan Chamberlain also start.
Wales wing Owen Lane makes his first Blues start since January and Jason Tovey comes in at fly-half, with Jarrod Evans out.
The Blues lie in second place in the Pro14 Conference B, with Edinburgh in fifth spot, having won only once so far this season – a razor-thin voctory over the Scarlets at 6-3.
Blues head coach John Mulvihill said: “We can head up to Scotland with confidence. Despite the two losses in recent weeks, those games were decided by small margins.”
After defeating the Scarlets last time out, Cockerill said: “Winning’s a habit and we’re happy that we’ve broken the losing streak we were in and we can continue to develop as a squad as we prepare to face a really strong Cardiff (Blues) outfit.”
Edinburgh: Jack Blain; Eroni Sau, Mark Bennett, Chris Dean, Jamie Farndale; Nathan Chamberlain, Henry Pyrgos (captain); Pierre Schoeman, David Cherry, Lee-Roy Atalifo, Andries Ferreira, Jamie Hodgson, Magnus Bradbury, Luke Crosbie, Ally Miller.
