Promising duo sign contract extensions at Edinburgh
January 13, 2014
Scrum-halves Sean Kennedy and Sam Hidalgo-Clyne have both signed contract extensions with Edinburgh which will keep them at the club until 2016.
"Sam has a wonderful future ahead of him," said Edinburgh head coach Alan Solomons. "Like Sam, I believe Sean has the qualities necessary to go on to play Test rugby for Scotland."
Hidalgo-Clyne, 22, has already played for Scotland at Under-20 level as well as for the Sevens side, while 20-year-old Kennedy was included in Scotland's 2013 Six Nations training camp before playing for Scotland A.
"It's tremendously pleasing to see young Scottish players come through," Solomons said. "Sam has progressed tremendously since the beginning of the season He's had a bit of game time and it's fantastic that he's committed to Edinburgh Rugby.
"Similarly, Sean, who's a little bit older and more experienced, is also a fine young player and a tremendous prospect. Scrum-half is a key position. It's vital that we have good depth and we certainly have quality in that area."
