Another One Back in the Fold

Scott Macleod has announced he is signing for Edinburgh, part of the SRU’s growing effort to herd in some of our lost sheep and get them playing rugby in the Scottish meadow again. Apologies for the over-extended pastoral metaphor there.

He has recently been out of favour for Llanelli following a second drugs testing incident – both of which he has been cleared over and only recently got back on to the bench. It’s a shame as he was playing a blinder down there for a while and was a fixture in their second row. However Edinburgh could always use more locks and with the pairing of Jim Hamilton and Scott MacLeod they now have some real potential there. No word on Rob Dewey’s mooted move to Glasgow as yet, but the SRU are definitely pushing to have a core of players in country where their availability can be controlled.
