Edinburgh have announced the signing of former Scotland Under-21 captain Neil Cochrane from London Wasps until 2016.

The hooker's signature comes after a nine-year exile south of the border, with eight years spent in the English Championship followed by a season with London Wasps in the Premiership.

The ex-Boroughmuir high school pupil, who made a positional switch from back row to hooker mid career, will arrive as part of the club's ongoing plans to act early and build a formidable squad for the forthcoming campaign.

Cochrane said: "I'm an Edinburgh boy so it's great to fulfil a life-long ambition to play for the team where I was born and grew up.

"It's taken nine hard years of graft to prove my worth. I never gave up on earning a return to Edinburgh and I'm really excited to join.

"Wasps helped me prove that I was capable of playing at that level, so when Edinburgh came knocking at the door it was a dream come true.

Edinburgh head coach Alan Solomons added: "What's important here is that we have a good Scottish player who has gone away and done it the tough, hard way.

"We've kept a very close eye on Neil, who's got talent. It's great to bring a player who's from the region back into the fold.

"He's exceptionally committed to coming here. A guy like that will be massively motivated and I think will add a lot of value to our side.”
