Edinburgh have signed Scotland international back-rower Luke Hamilton on a one-year deal ahead of the upcoming 2018/19 season.
The 26-year-old previously worked under Edinburgh Head Coach Richard Cockerill at Leicester Tigers, where he made 51 appearances in two seasons at Welford Road before leaving at the end of last season.
On making the move to the capital, Hamilton said: “I’m really excited to join Edinburgh this season – they are definitely a team on the rise.
“It’s a brilliant opportunity to continue my development as a player and I can’t wait to meet up with my new teammates.”
Head Coach, Cockerill, added: “We’re delighted that Luke has chosen to join Edinburgh and be part of the culture we’re building at this club.
“I obviously know Luke well from his time at Leicester. He’s a big, physical ball carrier who will add experience to what is an already talented back-row contingent, containing some exciting young players.
“He can play across the back-row and his dynamism adds another dimension to our attack. We’re looking forward to seeing how he develops in an international quality unit alongside the likes of Luke Crosbie, Bill Mata, Hamish Watson, Jamie Ritchie and Magnus Bradbury.”
