Hogg upbeat despite defeat
Edinburgh skipper takes positves from Toulouse defeat
Edinburgh captain Ally Hogg believes his side can be proud of their performance despite losing 30-10 to Toulouse in France.
Hogg claims that the game would have been a much tighter affair if his side had not "handed" Toulouse 12 points.
The French side needed victory to secure their passage into the next phase of the Heineken Cup, and their desire and intent was evident from the first whistle.
First-half tries from Vincent Clerc (2), and Florian Fritz gave the hosts a commanding 22-3 lead at the interval, and Edinburgh never recovered.
A late consolation from Ben Gissing was just the reward the visitors deserved for their efforts, and Hogg was left rueing what might have been.
"We did a lot of positive things and it was good to get a try near the end," he said.
"But we damaged ourselves by allowing them to score two breakaway tries when we had been on the attack.
"That was 12 points we handed them - and there is no way you can get away with doing that against a side of their quality."
