Williams and Rae agree new deals with Edinburgh

Tighthead duo Angus Williams and D’Arcy Rae have both extended their contracts with Edinburgh.

Williams has signed a new two-year deal, while Rae has committed to stay at the Hive Stadium for next season.

With Scotland tighthead WP Nel retiring at the end of this term, the two props are set to become even more prominent at Edinburgh.

“We’re delighted to see both Angus and D’Arcy extend terms with the club,” Edinburgh head coach Sean Everitt said.

“They are both really consistent trainers who bring the same energy and commitment every day. I’ve been really impressed with both players during my time at the club.

“Angus and D’Arcy both have a bit of grit and resolve about their game, while they enjoy the daily grind of improving themselves, whether that’s in the gym or on the training paddock.

“It’s brilliant to have two quality players signed up for next season, adding further strength and depth to the tighthead position.”
