Former Scotland captain Jonny Petrie has been appointed managing director of Edinburgh.

The former Glasgow skipper had been working for the Scottish Rugby Union as commercial operations manager following a role as head of sponsorship at energy firm SSE.

The 38-year-old, who won 45 Scotland caps, said: "I am very much looking forward to this new challenge of leading a club with such a strong history and exciting future.

"We have a great opportunity to build on the team's success in reaching the first European final for a Scottish professional team last season.

"I know there is a real desire to take the club forward and help ensure the players can give the fans plenty to cheer about in the seasons to come and I look forward to meeting many of the supporters in the coming months."
