Hardie signs new one-year deal with Edinburgh


Scotland back row John Hardie has signed a new one-year contract with Edinburgh.

Hardie moved to Edinburgh following Scotland's run to the quarter-finals of the Rugby World Cup in 2015.

Having made his debut for Scotland in August 2015, Hardie has won 15 caps for his country.

Edinburgh have struggled this season in the Pro12, sitting ninth in the table with just five wins from 21 games.

But Hardie is upbeat about the club's prospects going forward.

"I'm looking forward to another year at Edinburgh. The club has been great to me since I arrived a few years ago, and I've loved every minute playing alongside the boys," Hardie told the club's official website.

"It's been a disappointing season for us all, but we've got a good squad and the potential to really kick on next season. There's a good mix of youth and experience and we should really benefit from that going forward."
