Men's Rugby Union Kinghorn not in team to face Ulster in his scheduled final Edinburgh match

BLAIR KINGHORN’S Edinburgh career is effectively over after the Toulouse-bound full-back was not named in the team to face Ulster tomorrow in what was scheduled to be his final match for the club.

It was announced last Thursday that the 26-year-old Scotland international would be making a mid-season transfer to the French Top 14 champions after this weekend’s BKT United Rugby Championship encounter in Belfast, but he has been omitted with what Edinburgh described as “a minor hip injury sustained in training earlier this week.”

English-born South African full-back Tim Swiel, who joined the Scottish side in the summer from Japanese club Toyota Shokki, will make his debut at Kingspan Stadium in place of Kinghorn.
