'Edinburgh' and 'rugby' is a match made in heaven. With Murrayfield just a short stroll away from Princes Street, the city welcomes sports fans from across the world by hosting Six Nations games and Autumn International test matches. But away from the main event, the city is also home to some truly amazing pubs, all offering the perfect spot to catch every kick, tackle and try live on TV. Grab a cold pint at the bar, sink into a cosy armchair and watch your team battle it out in Edinburgh's best sports pubs.
