Edinburgh have announced that talented second-row, Jamie Hodgson, has elected to remain at the club with an extension of his existing contract.
The 22 year-old has eight caps under the belt this season and has impressed, particularly, with his courage and commitment on defence.
“The club means a lot to me and I’m really excited for the future,” he said. “I’ve really enjoyed the game time this year and that experience has given me a lot more confidence on the pitch.
“I want to continue having an impact on matches and I’m striving to get better and better and continue developing my game. As a team, we’re constantly getting better.
“It’s a massive privilege to be able to play for the team you’ve grown up supporting, I love representing the city.
“I have lots of fond memories being a supporter and I’m looking forward to making even more now on the field.”
Edinburgh Head Coach Richard Cockerill said:
“Jamie is a terrific example to younger players coming through the system or performing at FOSROC Super6 level.
“He works incredibly hard at his game and has shown levels of dedication that young players should aspire to.”
