Scotland scrum-half Pyrgos moves from Glasgow to Edinburgh

Pyrgos spent eight years at Glasgow

Scotland international Henry Pyrgos has joined Edinburgh from Glasgow Warriors.

The scrum-half has moved to the capital on a one-year deal after fellow number nine Sam Hidalgo-Clyne left Edinburgh for Scarlets earlier this summer.

Pyrgos spent eight years at Glasgow, but with Ali Price and George Horne shining for the Warriors, the 28-year-old has decided to join Richard Cockerill’s side.

"Winning the [Pro12] in 2015 was an incredible moment and one I'll always remember," Pyrgos told Edinburgh's website. 

"I'm really excited by the opportunity to join Edinburgh. The club has a great playing squad and coaching team, so I'm looking forward to being part of it. I believe the club is a great place for me to continue to develop as a player."

Head Coach Cockerill added: "Henry is a proven leader and comes with bags of experience, which will add real strength in depth to our scrum-half group.

"He's a winner and has captained Scotland, so it's great that he feels Edinburgh is a place where he can compete for further honours with both club and country."
