New Edinburgh head coach Michael Bradley has strengthened his squad for next season by recruiting Sean Cox and Chris Leck.

Cox, a lock forward, and scrum-half Leck were both previously with Sale Sharks, and become Bradley's first signings since the former Ireland captain took charge of the capital club earlier this month.

The pair will join up with the rest of the squad when pre-season training begins on June 6.

Bradley told the club's official website: "It's great news for the club that we've secured Sean and Chris and that they'll be here right from the first day of pre-season training in a couple of weeks' time.

"The players are used to the sort of demanding environment and competitions in which Edinburgh operate, and they'll both bring quality and appetite to their respective positions.

"We're still in the process of adding to what is already a strong squad full of international players.

"What we've got to offer is a team and club committed to continued improvement on and off the field, and it's then a case of identifying the right players and characters to contribute to that progress."

Cox, 26, said: "I've been really impressed by what Michael has had to say on his vision for the team, and I'm delighted to have become part of his plans.

"I'm looking forward to getting to know the rest of the lads in the next couple of months and to helping them push on next season."

Leck, 25, added: "Edinburgh is a great club and city to be based in, and I'm delighted to have joined."
