STUART McINALLY has signed a two-year contract extension with Edinburgh Rugby which will keep him with the capital outfit until the summer of 2020.
A product of George Watson’s College, McInally joined his hometown team in 2010 and has since gone on to make 110 appearances for the club. After beginning his career in the back-row, McInally made the switch to hooker in 2013 and has gone on to pick up 10 caps for Scotland, generally as back-up to Edinburgh club-mate Ross Ford and Ross Brown of Glasgow Warriors. He scored two tries and was named man-of-the-match for Scotland against Samoa at the weekend
“I’m extremely pleased to be staying in Edinburgh. It’s an exciting time to be part of the team and I feel we have strong foundations in place to move the club forward over the next few years,” said McInally.
Edinburgh Head Coach Richard Cockerill added: “Stuart McInally has been Scotland’s form hooker and I’m delighted that he sees his future in Edinburgh. We’re building a strong culture and environment here and Stuart is very much central to those plans.”
