Taylor sets sights on Azzurri clash
19 February 2005 14:47pm
British & Irish Lions number eight Simon Taylor is hoping his first start in a year for Edinburgh Gunners can catapult him into Scotland's team for the Six Nations game against Italy next week.
But after 11 months on the sidelines, Taylor will start at number eight for Edinburgh in the Celtic League clash against Leinster at Murrayfield on Saturday.
With Taylor also favourite for the role on the tour of New Zealand this summer, Lions coach Sir Clive Woodward will be keeping his fingers crossed that he comes through the game unscathed.
Taylor said: 'It is great to be back in the Edinburgh shirt.
'I am hoping all goes well and I can help Edinburgh win another game.'
