Davidson will link up with the Cherry & Whites following a spell in the Scottish capital.

The 6ft 7in lock came through the ranks of Glasgow Warriors, before signing with fellow Gallagher Premiership side Newcastle Falcons in 2016. After an impressive string of performances, Davidson returned to the Pro14 in 2019 with Glasgow, before signing with Edinburgh.

Davidson has also represented Scotland at age grade level, playing at U16 level through to U20.

Upon announcing his arrival, Alex Brown, Chief Operating Officer, was pleased to confirm Davidson’s signature.

“Andrew is a towering lock and a very powerful presence on the pitch. His signing adds to the strength we have in our pack for next season.

“He’s also still only 24 and has plenty of rugby ahead of him as we build our squad for the longer term.”
