Edinburgh got back to winning ways in the European Rugby Challenge Cup after their defeat in last season's final against Gloucester as they kicked-off their Pool Five campaign with a 28-10 win over Grenoble at Murrayfield.

It was the Scottish side's fifth successive home win in the competition and the perfect start for Alan Solomons' side, who had two tries from number eight Cornell du Preez to thank for their success.

His first came after only five minutes when the back-rower was in the right place to fall on the ball at the back of a rolling maul.

Heavy rain before kick-off made handling difficult and it took almost half-an-hour before the next points came, a penalty from the boot of scrum-half Sam Hidalgo-Clyne with a penalty.

A second penalty before the break made it 11-0 to the home side at half-time.

A penalty from Grenoble's Irish scrum-half James Hart cut the gap 10 minutes after the restart, before Hidalgo-Clyne kicked a third goal.

The Scottish side then put the game to bed with a penalty try from a strong scrum platform.

Daniel Kilioni got a consolation try for the visitors before du Preez struck again and Greig Tonks added the conversion.
