    Pro12: Edinburgh 23-11 Glasgow Warriors
    Edinburgh earned a surprise win over Glasgow at Murrayfield in the first leg of the 1872 Cup to leapfrog the Warriors in the Pro12.

    The visitors scored first, through a Mark Bennett try, which was quickly cancelled out by one from Matt Scott.

    Sam Hidalgo-Clyne added three penalties to Finn Russell's two to make it 16-11.

    The outstanding John Hardie sealed the win from a devastating line-out maul, Hidalgo-Clyne converting in front of a record crowd for the fixture of 23,642.

    Edinburgh will take a precious 12-point advantage into Saturday's rematch at Scotstoun for the second leg of the 1872 Cup, the silverware played for by the two sides every year, while Edinburgh are up to fourth in the Pro12 table, albeit temporarily as Munster and Leinster meet later on Sunday.
