Edinburgh have received a timely boost with the news Scotland prop Alasdair Dickinson has extended his contract with the team until 2016.

Dickinson, who has 30 caps for Scotland, rejoined Edinburgh in May having played for Gloucester and then Sale Sharks. "It's my home club. I stared my career here in the academy ten years ago and I've really enjoyed it since I've come back," Dickinson said. "I firmly believe in what the coaches are building. There's a great group of lads here and I'm very happy to be part of the plans for a bright future.

"All the staff are so passionate about Edinburgh Rugby as a club and all the players are the same. We're all aiming in the right direction and I think we're really starting to generate that family feel."

Edinburgh boss Alan Solomons added: "It's wonderful that we've been able to sign him, together with the other Scottish internationalists, and keep them here at Edinburgh Rugby. I think it only augurs well for the club going forward."
