TRANSFER NEWS: Scotland international lock Ben Toolis, who earned his sixth international cap against New Zealand at BT Murrayfield on Saturday, will be an Edinburgh player for at least the next two years.

The Australian-born second-row, who is now in his fifth season in the capital, said: "I’m really excited to be staying in Edinburgh. I strongly believe we have the right squad and management in place to create something special and I want to be a part of that,"

Edinburgh Head Coach Richard Cockerill added: "Ben has been the engine in our forward pack all season, whilst his ability at the lineout is key for both club and country.

"We’re delighted that he’s chosen to commit his future to Edinburgh. We’re building a strong culture here and Ben is a crucial component of that environment moving forward,"

Toolis joined Edinburgh in 2013 and has gone onto make 76 appearances for the club.

The 25-year-old second row, who made his Scotland debut against Italy in February 2015, has been ever-present in Edinburgh’s first XV this season and started in the second row for Scotland against the All Blacks at BT Murrayfield on Saturday.
