Magnus Bradbury re-signs for Edinburgh

Scotland international back-row Magnus Bradbury has become the latest player to commit his future to Edinburgh Rugby after today putting pen-to-paper on a new deal.

 


 

Bradbury, 24, has been a stalwart for the capital club since breaking into the first XV as a teenager and now re-signs following a stellar year that saw him establish himself as a Scotland starter at the Rugby World Cup in Japan.

Bradbury – who has featured in nine matches so far this season – joins fellow Fosroc Scottish Rugby Academy graduates George Taylor, Luke Crosbie and Lewis Carmichael in re-signing with the club.


On penning a new deal, Bradbury, said: “I’m really happy to have been given the opportunity to re-sign with the club that I've spent my whole career with.

“It’s a great place to be and it’s brilliant to be part of a team that is so driven to succeed and compete at the highest level.


“Edinburgh is an exciting place to be at the moment and I'm looking forward to seeing the results that this team can produce moving forward.”

Bradbury earned a call-up to the Scotland squad for that year’s Autumn International Tests at BT Murrayfield and made his international debut, starting at blindside flanker as the national team secured a 19-16 win over Argentina in November 2016.

The back-row penned a new three-year deal prior to the 2017/18 season, before making his 50th appearance for the club against Ulster in April 2018.

After missing out on the initial 31-man Scotland squad for the 2019 Rugby World Cup in Japan, he was called into set-up as an injury replacement for clubmate Jamie Ritchie, and ended the tournament with three pool stage appearances against Samoa, Russia and Japan.

Bradbury returned to club action in October 2019 as Edinburgh beat Scarlets 46-7 at BT Murrayfield and has since featured in nine matches, including Saturday’s 61-13 win over Southern Kings that saw the capital side move to the top of Guinness PRO14 Conference B.

Now in his sixth season with the club, Bradbury has scored nine tries in 74 appearances.
