Edinburgh Rugby today confirmed the re-signing of back-row Magnus Bradbury on a three-year deal, keeping him at the capital club until at least 2020.

Bradbury, 21, joined the club as an Academy player in 2013, before being rewarded with a full-time professional contract in 2015.  

He has made 22 appearances in the black and red – collecting two Man of the Match accolades this season – and has scored 25 points through five tries. 

A string of impressive performances for Edinburgh Rugby this season was rewarded when he was called-up to train with Scotland’s Autumn Test squad, before he was named in the starting side to make his international debut in the national team’s 19-16 defeat of Argentina.

He said:

“It’s great to know I’ll be part of this team for another three years, as I’m excited – along with the rest of the boys – about where we can take the club.

“I love Edinburgh and there’s a great group of people at the club, and that is a huge reason for me to stay.

“It’s also great to have the opportunity to continue playing my rugby in Scotland as I look to build on my cap. Now, for me, it’s about getting as many [caps] as I possibly can.”

A product of Oban Lorne and Merchiston Castle School, Bradbury emerged through the Scotland age-grade and Scottish Rugby Academy systems, and is excited about continuing his development in the capital with his fellow team mates from the junior national sides.

“To play with the guys in the age-grades and to progress into the professional set-up together is quite special.”

Acting Head Coach Duncan Hodge, said: “We’re delighted that Magnus has signed a new three-year deal at the club.

“Magnus has worked very hard to get to this point, his training ethic and determination to continue improving shines through every single day.

“He drives standards and is a great example to the other young players in the squad.

“Securing an asset such as Magnus is a real statement of intent going forward.”
