Edinburgh have confirmed that Scotland international Murray McCallum has penned a new two-year contract with the Pro14 club.

McCallum made his professional rugby debut with Edinburgh in 2016 and has played for the club 46 times in which he managed to score four tries.

“I’m delighted to be able to extend my stay in Edinburgh. We have a great group of boys here and there’s a brilliant buzz around the club at the moment," he said.

“We’re going in a really positive direction, both on and off the pitch, and I’m really pleased to be a part of that for another two years.”

The 22-year-old was called up to the Scotland squad during the Six Nations tournament last year in which he made his debut for the national side during the clash against Wales and has so far featured in three Tests.

“We’re really happy to have extended Murray’s stay at the club," said Edinburgh head coach Richard Cockerill.

"He’s a strong, developing prop with a big future in the game. It’s great that he’s chosen to be a part of what is already being built here in Edinburgh.”

Edinburgh are currently positioned fifth in Conference B table of Pro 14 with six wins from 12 games.
