Allan Dell

Edinburgh Rugby’s buliding work continued in earnest with the signing of loosehead prop Allan Michael Elgin Dell on a two-year deal to 2016.

Educated at Queens College in Eastern Cape, the promising young prop, who can play on both sides of the scrum, qualifies for Scotland through his grandmother, Joan Carmichael, who was born in Paisley and brought up in Edinburgh.

He has made 13 senior appearances in the Vodacom and Currie Cup competitions alongside his selection for South Africa Schools and every South Africa age-grade en route to lifting the Junior World Championship trophy with the under-20 side in 2012.

He made his Edinburgh debut, off the bench replacing Rory Sutherland, in the Guinness PRO12 round 5 defeat to Ulster at Ravenhill in October 2014 and was included in the extended Scotland squad later that month, however injury during the match against Leinster curtailed his involvement. He was subsequently named in Vern Cotter's extended squad for RWC 2015.
