Cape Town - Edinburgh have bolstered their front-row resources ahead of the new season with the signing of former Stormers loosehead Wicus Blaauw.
Blaauw, 27, who has also represented Biarritz, is new coach Alan Solomons
' first piece of recruitment and the former Kings coach is delighted with the signing.
"I've seen a lot of Wicus," Solomons said.
"He's played a lot of games at a high level, for both the Western Province and the Stormers, in South Africa's premier provincial and Super Rugby sides, as well in the French Top 14 and Heineken Cup. He's a very strong loosehead prop and is very good at his core roles, especially scrummaging. I believe he will be an asset to Edinburgh Rugby."
Blaauw added: "This is a great opportunity for me to immerse myself in the rugby culture in Edinburgh and become part of the rugby family at the club. It's a new challenge and I'm really looking forward to bringing something to the team, while I also think it's the right place to help me improve as a player. I love scrummaging, I love running with the ball, and I love tackling."
