Transfer News: Italian forward is heading to Edinburgh

Italy prop Pietro Ceccarelli has agreed a one-year deal to join Edinburgh next season.

The tight-head, 26, has won nine caps to date and is currently with French Top 14 outfit Oyonnax.

Edinburgh are also close to bolstering their prop stocks further, with South African Under-20 international Pierre Schoeman poised to join from Bulls franchise.

“I’m really excited for this new experience,” Ceccarelli said.

“The Pro14 is a competition that I know well, but this new challenge, in a different country, with a different rugby culture, will only make me a better rugby player.

“I’m looking forward to giving my all for Edinburgh.”
