Laidlaw hails Bradley approach

by Setanta Staff , 09 April 2012

Edinburgh fly-half Greig Laidlaw has praised the club's head coach Michael Bradley for the impact he has made this season.

The Scottish outfit became the first club from the Celtic nation to book their place in the semi-final of the Heineken Cup, after they pulled off a shock 19-14 victory over Toulouse at Murrayfield on Saturday.

Edinburgh have now set up a last four clash with Ulster in the European competition, after the Northern Irish outfit saw off rivals Munster in their semi-final encounter at Thomond Park last weekend.

With the Scottish national side enduring a disappointing RBS 6 Nations tournament with not a single in the championship, the improvement of the two professional sides in the country has come as some relief.

Bradley has worked wonders since taking over at Edinburgh and Scotland stand-off Laidlaw has been impressed with the Irishman for his efforts in the ongoing campaign.

He said: "The players maybe never bought right into it at the start of the season. "

But now we are really buying into what he's about and that's why we're getting these kind of results.

"He has been a breath of fresh air for the club this year."
