The resignation notice, which takes immediate effect, was sent by the club’s owner, Bob Carruthers, to SRU Secretary Graham Ireland.

As a result of Edinburgh Rugby's withdrawal from membership, and under IRB Regulations, no club or team that is a member of any Rugby Union and in membership of the IRB, is now permitted to play against Edinburgh Rugby.

Furthermore, as the club is no longer an Associate Member of the SRU, it is not entitled to be a member of the SRU Club Accident Insurance Scheme, which is only open to member clubs. Therefore, Edinburgh Rugby's contracted players are no longer insured by the governing body scheme for the purposes of training or playing.
