Update 1/2/16: It has been confirmed by both London Irish and Edinburgh
We have received unconfirmed reports that Edinburgh captain Mike Coman is off to London Irish at the end of the season.
With his contract up this summer, and his starting place in the team far from secure, its no surprise that the man from Nelson could be looking for pastures new.
Despite the loss of David Denton to Bath, the back row still looks very well stocked with Nasi Manu, John Hardie, Cornell Du Preez, (and Scottish qualified youngsters) Hamish Watson, Jamie Ritchie and Magnus Bradbury all fighting for places.
Will this cost Edinburgh in terms of leadership? Only time will tell.
