EDINBURGH will take a 16-point lead to Glasgow on Saturday for the second leg of their KO Cup quarter-final.
The Monarchs gave their best performance of the season to register a 53-37 home win on Friday, in a major turnaround from the Tigers’ 12-point victory on their previous visit.
Sam Masters led the way with a full 15-point maximum and combined for two late 5-1s with Josh Pickering (12+2) whilst Craig Cook scored eight for the Tigers, who were limited to three race wins.
Edinburgh boss Alex Harkess said: “That was a very good and very determined performance, I was very happy with it.
“There were some really tough first corners out there tonight but we were very competitive, and there were also some excellent overtakes especially by Josh Pickering as usual, and our guest Dillon Ruml.”
