'I don't think we entertained the crowd'
Mike Blair has challenged his high-flying Edinburgh team to add some extra vibrancy to their play.
However, head coach Blair feels his side, who are on the coat-tails of leaders Leinster, can still go up through the gears.
He said: “We got a win but there is lot of things we can improve on and do better. As I said to the guys, it is a hell of a lot easier learning when you are winning.
“We are trying to change what we are doing but it is not going to click straight away. The game against the Dragons (last weekend) it did click, but we can’t expect that to happen every time. We should be learning when we are winning as we have a good enough squad to do that.
“It was a bonus-point win over a good Benetton side so we have to be happy with that but I don’t think we entertained the crowd. They won’t have gone home saying they loved that performance.
“That sort of thing matters to me, it is a big part of it to want to entertain. The crowds come here, and there is an expectation now.
“I am not saying we are going to throw the ball around Harlem Globetrotters-style, but it means we are accurate and play an attacking game that is not easy to defend but is good to watch as well.
“I just thought it was a little bit flat on Friday.”
