The Aussie players were in good spirits at the Pleasance gym earlier in the week

Not only were they unhappy with the quality of the pitch, but they also reportedly were asked to leave after a short while in order to preserve the surface for Edinburgh Uni's match against Durham the following day.

According to the Sydney Morning Herald, they had earlier declined the opportunity to train on a Murrayfield practice pitch in the fear that Scottish coaches might spy on their session.
