The former Borders Head Coach Rob Moffat and current backs coach at Edinburgh will step up to replace Andy Robinson as the new head coach in the Scottish capital.

But the main aim for next season will be to improve upon those achievements and take the development onto the next level. The squad is bursting with quality and potential and I'm really excited about what we can achieve together." explained new Edinburgh's coach.
