Edmonds 'fine' after injury scare
NIGEL Davies has allayed injury fears surrounding Australian hooker Huia Edmonds.
The 31-year-old front-rower was knocked out cold trying to tackle Sale centre Sam Tuitupou in the second-half of Saturday's 29-3 Gloucester victory.
The former Brumbies and Wallabies man was given lengthy on-field treatment, before being taken from the field on a stretcher.
Relieved Gloucester boss Davies revealed Edmonds sustained no serious damage, and was up and about quickly afterwards in the Kingsholm changing rooms.

While the free-running forward will probably miss out on Sunday's Saracens clash, Davies said he is not expected to be out for much longer than that.
Gloucester's rugby director explained: "Huia was just knocked out, he was fine pretty quickly afterwards, watching the Australia game in the changing rooms.
"That's a good boost, he put his body on the line to make a tackle, and because of that he was knocked out.
"It's not going to be serious, it might keep him out for a week or so, but no longer than that really."
