Forwards coach Stevie Lawrie has signed a new one-year deal with Edinburgh.

The 39-year-old joined the coaching staff as assistant forwards coach ahead of the 2019/20 season before being promoted to forwards coach two years later.

Edinburgh are currently recruiting for a new head coach to lead them into the 2023/24 campaign after it was announced in February that Mike Blair would be leaving at the end of the season.

Lawrie said: “I’m really excited to extend my contract with the club. Edinburgh Rugby has and continues to be a major part of my life.

“I’m privileged to be the forwards coach of my hometown club.

“I’m looking forward to continuing to drive standards next season while improving consistency on the field. We understand performances and results weren’t good enough this year.

“It’s now my role to work with the new head coach to ensure Edinburgh Rugby is back competing at the top end of the table.

“It’s a privilege to come to work every day and work with such a talented squad.

“We have all the ingredients to succeed – including a brilliant home ground and hugely engaged fan base – but it’s also about creating a robust environment, which translates into positive results.

“I’m really excited to continue the hard work next season. The club is in a great place and there’s so much more to come from this squad.”
