Edinburgh scored five tries as they recorded a bonus point 33-17 win over Ospreys at Murrayfield in the Magners League on the weekend. Replacement winger Tim Visser had a day to remember, as he scored an incredible hat trick in the space of five minutes.
Visser came off the bench to replace an injured Simon Webster after 15 minutes, but had to wait till the second half to cross for his treble. He contributed towards the opening try of the match though, helping Ben Cairns cross on 34 minutes.
It remained 7-0 at halftime before the home side scored a sensational four tries in eight minutes with the big Dutch winger crossing for three of them as Edinburgh showed their flair from deep.
His colleague on the other wing, Mark Robertson scored a fantastic try himself as Edinburgh ran from deep, freeing up the pacey winger as he stepped a couple of Ospreys players then galloped away for a top quality try.
Ospreys managed to get themselves together in the last minute, scoring three tries through Nikki Walker, Jerry Collins, and Sonny Parker, but it was too little, too late as the home side did enough to take a memorable win.
Vissers try scoring feat of three tries now make him the first ever Edinburgh player to score three tries in the Magners League, as well as it being the quickest hat trick ever recorded in the tournaments history.
"Its my first hat-trick in first-team rugby. To come off the bench and score three tries is beautiful for me," Visser said afterwards.
