Edinburgh have confirmed that the upcoming European Challenge Cup clash against Stade Francais has been shifted from Myerside to BT Murrayfield Stadium.

The news follows after the Myerside pitch took a battering of rain and hail on Friday night during Edinburgh's 37-7 victory over Southern Kings.

Edinburgh currently are at top of Pool 4 with four victories from as many games and a win against the French side on Friday will seal the quarter-final berth for Richard Cockerill's men.

"Friday evening's Challenge Cup, Round 5 fixture between Edinburgh Rugby and Stade Francais Paris has been moved to BT Murrayfield Stadium due to a frozen pitch at Myreside," read a statement from EPCR.

"The Pool 4 match will kick off at 7.35pm local time as originally scheduled."
